All UFA Team 2010

Blog: The Puck Stops Here By PuckStopsHere

I like to make an all star team of the best unrestricted free agents available each year so that I can do some analysis later and try to determine how good the team would have been if they had all been acquired by the same squad.  Usually that all UFA team winds up well above the salary cap but does not look too competitive as an NHL team. 

Here is last year’s team and i am yet to do any serious analysis (I will in a couple days).  I screwed up on this team in that I announced it a few hours before free agency began in earnest and its two best players, Henrik and Daniel Sedin, re-signed in Vancouver before the start of free agency.  Thus, those two players will have to be removed from any analysis, as they were never actually available as free agents.  Had the eventual NHL MVP and the second team All Star left winger been on the team it would have been much better than it actually was.

No Big Name UFA List For Oilers

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from JoAnne Ireland of the Edmonton Journal,

The days of big name hunting are over. When the NHL’s free agent market opens today, the Edmonton Oilers will venture in with a much different tactic than summers past.

They will be on the lookout for more role players, fewer marquee men. More Colin Fraser-type players, fewer Marian Hossas.

The Oilers have pursued the likes of Hossa and Michael Nylander and Dany Heatley, only to come up emptyhanded. Now, in the midst of a massive rebuild, the focus is on development. Taylor Hall, Jordan Eberle and Magnus Paajarvi-Svensson will have every chance to make the lineup at camp and will play alongside the likes of veteran Shawn Horcoff, defenceman Ryan Whitney and Fraser, who was acquired from the Chicago Blackhawks in a draft-day deal.

“I have my own little list that I’ll keep to myself until I’m asked,” head coach Tom Renney said recently.
