Scott Burnside of ESPN takes a look at and possible destinations of the UFA forwards…
Although the big money will chase the big three (Gomez, Briere and Drury) as teams try to build down the middle, there is surprising depth in the free-agent market at the center position. Handzus, an underappreciated player in Philadelphia who was hurt early on in Chicago last season, is an intriguing possibility. Although he’s not regarded as a true first-line center, the defensively sound Handzus is a fine faceoff man. Sounds like a pretty good fit for a team looking for help on both sides of the puck. One team that might be interested is Columbus, where coach Ken Hitchcock is well aware of Handzus’ value from their days in Philadelphia.
