The Puck Stops Here

2014 All UFA Team

Every year I make an all star team of unrestricted free agents to be.  The idea is to see how good a team one could acquire as free agents.  How much would it cost and about how good would they be?  Here is last year's all UFA team.  In the near future I will write a post trying to pick how good they would have been.

Should any player on this list sign before free agency begins tomorrow, I will replace him on the team.

Here is your 2014 All UFA Team:

Forwards:

Daniel Alfredsson Detroit Red Wings
Mike Cammalleri Calgary Flames
Martin Havlat San Jose Sharks
Ales Hemsky Ottawa Senators
Jussi Jokinen Pittsburgh Penguins
Jarome Iginla Boston Bruins
David Legwand Detroit Red Wings
Matt Moulson Minnesota Wild
Mike Ribiero Arizona Coyotes
Brad Richards New York Rangers
Derek Roy St Louis Blues
Paul Stastny Colorado Avalanche
Tomas Vanek Montreal Canadiens
Radim Vrbata Arizona Coyotes

Defencemen:

Dan Boyle New York Islanders
Andrej Meszaros Boston Bruins
Christian Ehrhoff Buffalo Sabres
Tom Gilbert Florida Panthers
Matt Niskanen Pittsburgh Penguins
Brooks Orpik Pittsburgh Penguins
Anton Stralman New York Rangers

Goaltenders:

Jonas Hiller Anaheim Ducks
Ryan Miller St Louis Blues

I think if this team has a strength it is goaltending.  Both goaltenders could be solid number one guys.  While there are useful parts on forward and defence there are no top level gamebreakers.  Likely this team, like most All UFA teams would struggle if it was an NHL team and would cost more than the salary cap allows.
