from Jim Matheson of the Edmonton Journal,
Here are the top 20 unrestricted free agents who could move on April 3, mostly as rentals:
1. Corey Perry (Anaheim Ducks). Perry falls under the Marian Hossa, Ilya Kovalchuk umbrella, only Anaheim is a much better club than Atlanta ever was when they traded their studs in their prime at the deadline....
2. Jarome Iginla (Calgary). Iginla is 35, Perry is 27. There’s a big difference in compensation. The Flames captain has a no-trade clause in his contract and has never wanted to play anywhere else, but if Calgary is out of the playoffs, I’m betting Jay Feaster will come to him and says, “Here’s three teams that want you. Take your pick.” ...
3. Ryane Clowe (San Jose Sharks). Only 30, he’s a prototypical snarly power forward, although his stats are nothing to jump up and down about this season. Clowe of two years ago was a better buy, but it’s tough to knock his ability to get to the blue paint.
4. Valtteri Filppula (Detroit Red Wings). The Red Wings have to make a decision on the Finnish centre, who likely wants considerably more than the $3 million he’s making now....
