If you hockey fans were looking for some wild spending, reminiscent of the good ol’ pre-lockout days, the opening day of free agency didn’t disappoint.
The big market teams, flush with an extra $6 million in cap space due to the new upper limit, were rockin’ and rollin’ on the first day of July. The Rangers, Flyers, Avalanche, Wings and Maple Leafs, as well as the champion Ducks, all made big-money pickups.
On the first day of free agency, fans around the league were either very happy (Rangers fans) or very sad (Sabres fans). It all depended on who you signed or who you lost. Happy or sad, fans should remember they don’t award the Cup in July. Or, at least, they don’t do that just yet.
