Knowing the panicked proclivity of teams seeking a PR splash, Marian Hossa, Bryan Campbell, Ryan Malone, Sean Avery and even Mr. Huselius will find themselves rich boys by the time September rolls around. Given the fulsome praise heaped on him every night of the Stanley Cup final by Don Cherry, Gary Roberts should break the UFA mint as well. (No? How could Don be wrong?)
Once again, the NHL has achieved the neat trick of creating scarcity in free agents, a sure recipe for overpaying the likes of Hossa, Huselius, Pavol Demitra or Avery.
