Kukla's Korner Hockey

Wait Until Next Year

from the Detroit Free Press,
Here's a dilemma: You find a really nice house, and it's available to buy now. But you also know that next summer, a dreamier house may be available. Which do you buy? Free agency begins today in the NHL, and, like the other 29 teams, the Red Wings will be looking to shape a team while being fiscally responsible. There may well be 200-plus unrestricted free agents available by noon, when the deadline for clubs to qualify their own restricted free agents expires, and a list that already includes Peter Forsberg, Markus Naslund, Scott Niedermayer and Adam Foote will further burgeon. What team wouldn't want some of those names? Well, actually, a team that might decide to hold out until next summer, when the list of unrestricted free agents could include names like Jarome Iginla, Joe Thornton and Vincent Lecavalier.
