Puck Daddy’s Top 10 Free-Agent Pivots

From Greg Wyshynski at Puck Daddy:

The best centers available at the Frenzy this week sadly aren’t unrestricted free agents. They have names like Lecavalier and Gomez and Marleau. They cost a lot of money, and will cost talent going back the other way. But comparing them to most of the free-agent centers on the UFA market is like comparing the grosses for the new “Transformers” explosion-gasm with those for the new Larry-David-as-Woody-Allen flick. In the sense that there is no comparison.

The problem with this summer’s crop of pivots isn’t just its depth; it’s the details. Joe Sakic(notes) proved he had something left in the tank last season, though not much; but it’s the Colorado Avalanche or daily rounds of golf and afternoon naps for him.
