Top Free agents still out there
There are many good free agents still on the market, and teams with cap space can still get some good talent.Peter Forsberg- Eklund says he’s got a great offer from a Western Conference team, I say he just had surgery and is contemplating retiring, so no such offer will be accepted.
Sheldon Souray- Many are saying a deal with the Sharks is about to be finalized. I’m not ruling out the habs just yet though.
Teemu Selanne- Like Forsberg, he’s contemplating retiring. If he signs, it will be with the Ducks, it will be in a few weeks, and it will likely be at a fairly low price.
Brendan Shanahan- Wants to stay in New York (can you blame him) some are specualting he’ll sign at a reduced price. I think 4 million is the number he’ll stick with.
Alexei Yashin- He’s gotten a few offers, but refuses to sign for any less than 3 million. He’s rumored to be going to the habs, but I wouldn’t bank on it. I wouldn’t rule out playing in Russia, where he could easily make 3 million.
Slava Kozlov- Atlanta is doing everything they can to keep this guy. Detroit has been rumered to be interested. They certainly have the money.
Brad Stuart– I’ve been told he’s been talking to nobody but San Jose, but Eklund is saying he’s now talking with the Kings.
Bill Guerin– Ottawa, St. Louis, Toronto, this guy has been rumored to be going everywhere. I think he’s got plenty of offers, and may find himself making a good amount of money wherever he lands.
Andy Sutton– Some are joking around saying this guy hasn’t recieved a single call yet, but when the dust settles somebody will pay him the 4 million dollars he desires.
Danius Zubrus– Eklund is saying he’s going to Toronto. However Eklund lives off of advertising because he says people will go to Toronto. He’s likely be going to the Habs.
