Intriguing reading: The Sporting News’s Craig Custance offers a list of the top 25 free agents who may be available to bidders on July 1st, and while doing so, he tosses out some surprising possible destinations for said players:
1. Brad Richards, C, Dallas Stars: Refused to waive his no-trade clause to give a prospective buyer an early crack at signing him. He is, by-far, the best option available on July 1.
Potential destinations: Toronto, New York Rangers, Tampa Bay, Buffalo, Detroit, Philadelphia.
3. Christian Ehrhoff, D, Vancouver Canucks: Even with Bieksa’s deal, there might still be room in Vancouver if general manager Mike Gillis can unload Keith Ballard’s contract.
Potential destinations: Detroit, Buffalo, Vancouver.
5. Tomas Vokoun, G, Florida Panthers: With Ilya Bryzgalov locked up in Philadelphia, Vokoun is the next best option in goal. There aren’t many starting vacancies open, though.
Potential destinations: Florida, Colorado, Phoenix.
