Remaining Free Agents
A LOT OF PLAYERS ARE SWEATING HARD TWO WEEKS AFTER FREE AGENCY BEGAN
Ron Hainsey was instrumental in negotiating a deal for the players – now he’s out of a job. Backlash?
Tim Thomas – if this loud mouth ass doesn’t play another second in the NHL, this big mouth will be happy.
Teemu Selanne – “One More Year” – we’ve been hearing that for 6 straight seasons. He keeps coming back and playing well. The Ducks have a pretty brutal travel schedule. He may opt to stay home finally
Brenden Morrow – He’ll get a deal somewhere
Ian White – surprised nobody has offered him a deal yet.
Douglas Murray – surprised the Trasformer hasn’t signed with anyone yet
Mason Raymond – I’ll never forget when he had his back broken in the playoffs. Hasn’t been the same since.
Peter Mueller – only 25 but often concussed.
Chad Larose – he skates funny – surprised he hasn’t signed yet.
Damien Brunner – ink the NJ deal already
OUT OF THE NHL?
Tomas Kaberle – he’s been robbing the NHL for years. No team will be stupid enough to sign him.
Tim Connolly – he gives China doll a bad name. Hope he enjoyed his last 5 million dollar payday
Nik Antropov – another one who does nothing
Filip Kuba – once a solid D man, he’ll wind up in Europe
Roman Hamrlik – good career.
Tom Poti – this guy has sucked ever since he came into the NHL. He’s like Erik Estrada
Carlo Coliacovo – worse than Tim Connolly
Alexi Ponikarovsky – rememeber when no NHL team was going to sign this guy and Lombardi handed him 3.5 million bucks for 5 goals?
Kyle Wellwood – this guy has sucked for years.
Jose Theodore – nice career, couldn’t win the big game
PLAYERS WHO MAY GET A DEAL
Simon Gagne – won’t be seeing 3.5 million dollars anytime soon. He’ll have to settle for league minimum.
Ryan Whitney – another player who will be offered minimum
Tom Gilbert – minimum
Matthew Lombardi – oft injured but a solid Center – at 31 he should be able to muster a half million dollar deal somewhere
Toni Lydman – wasn’t bad for Anaheim last season but at 3 million bucks he’ll have very few takers
Vinny Prospal – LW are hard to find. He wont make 2 million bucks but he can still score.
Mathieu Garon – I just pulled his game worn jersey out of my closet. I’ll probably never make back what I paid for it.
Scott Gomez – Come on Uncle Lou, sign him for old times sake
David Steckel – remember when we drafted him and we were so excited?
Brad Boyes – this guy must be a locker room cancer
