PostSEASON 1 FREE AGENT BLOG

THIS WAS OUR 1ST FREE AGENCY WITH THE FREE AGENT DRAFT FORMAT, IT HAD THE POTENTIAL TO DO WELL BUT I WAS STILL NOT SURE HOW WELL BALANCED IT WOULD BE.

WELL NOW THAT IT IS COMPLETE I THINK IT WAS A HUGE SUCCESS AND FROM WHAT I HEAR FROM MOST OF YOU, YOU FELT THE SAME WAY. SO LETS BREAK DOWN THE WINNERS AND LOSERS.


LAK - OUT

S.WEISS 84
C.KOBASEW 78
B.GERVAIS 79

LAK - IN
CHARA 94
V.NICHUSHKIN 77
J.CORVO 77

WINNERS BIG TIME...CHARA ALONE MADEE THIS A WIN BUT NICHISHKIN WAS A NICE ADDED BONUS AS WELL.

TBL - OUT
J.MITCHELL 79
E.WELLWOOD 76
J.CORVO 77

TBL - IN
RASK 87
D.WINNIK 80
T.PECKHAM 77

WINNERS AGAIN RASK ALONE MADE IT A WIN, I WAS A LITTLE SHOCKED WITH THE PICK SINCE TBL HAVE 2 STARTING GOALIES ALREADY IN THE MIX BUT IM SURE GLENN HAS A PLAN.

PHI - OUT
C.OREILLY 75
T.BRODIE 80
D.LEGGIO 72

PHI - IN
M.STAAL 87
M.GRANLUND 77

D.PERRON 84
M.STAAL 87
J.CAMPBELL 74

BOS - IN
N.KADRI 85
T.BRODIE 80
C.GILLIES 76

LOSERS THIS IS THAT ODD TIME WHERE A BOTTOM TEAM JUST GOT BAD LUCK OF THE DRAW, GETTING KADRI MADE UP SOME OF THE GAP SPECIALLY SEEINGS HOW HE JUST WON A CUP ON THE SABRES BUT IN THE END LOSING PERRON AND STAAL HURT.

PIT - OUT
P.BYRON 72
A.KHOKHLACHEV 68
A.STRALMAN 78

PIT - IN
PERRON 84
K.RUSSELL 79
T.KENNEDY 75

WINNERS LOST NOTHING GAINS A TOP 6 FORWARD, ON TOP OF THAT THIS TEAM WAS ALREADY GOOD AND JUST UNDERACHIEVED, LOOK OUT FOR THIS TEAM

WSH - OUT
T.RUUTU 85
L.SBISA 84
H.RUOPP 70

WSH - IN
M.KOIVU 87
T.BERTUZZI 80
B.CROMBEEN 75

LOSERS YOUR PROBABLY THINKING HOW KOIVU IS WAY BETTER THEN RUUTU AND THAT MAY BE TRUE IN THE NHL BUT IN THE GAME RUUTU AND KOIVU ARN'T TO FAR OFF AND LOSING SBISA A TOP DEFENSIVE DMAN HURTS. HOWEVER OVERALL I DONT KNOW IF THIS WILL HURT THE TEAM ANYMORE SO YOU MAY EVEN CALL IT A WASH.

MIN - OUT
P.DUPUIS 82
M.STRANSKY 68
S.MASON 79

MIN - IN
J.HOWARD 88
R.ELLIS 77

AVS - IN
M.GREEN 85

S.THORNTON 76
C.NEIL 79

NYR - IN
C.STEWART 85
D.RUNDBLAD 77

P.MAROON 75
T.BRENNAN 77

STL - IN
B.SCHENN 83
M.PERRAULT 79

VAN - OUT
B.SCHENN 83
G.ROE 68
M.COOKE 80

VAN - IN
T.RUUTU 85
C.NEIL 79
A.URBOM 74

WASH IN THE NHL SCHENN IS HAVING A DECENT YEAR WHERE AS RUUTU SUCKS BUT IN THE GAME THEY PRODUCE ABOUT THE SAME MAYBE A SLIGHT ADVANTAGE TO RUUTU IF HE PLAYS ON THE TOP LINE, NEIL AND COOKE ARE A WASH SO OVERALL ITS A WASH MAYBE A SLIGHT WIN WITH THE LOW LEVEL DEPTH

CHI - OUT
M.PERREAULT 79
J.NORDSTROM 73
M.GREEN 85

CHI - IN
M.DEL ZOTTO 84

Z.BOGOSIAN 86
M.BARTKOWSKI 76

NYI - IN
T.DALEY 85
B.GERVAIS 79

J.HAYES 75
R.GUDAS 76

ANA - IN
S.MASON 79
P.BUDAJ 78
T.PULKKINEN 71

LOSERS BIG TIME NOONE AT THE HELM WHEN FREE AGENCY CAME SO NO PLAYERS LOCKED UP AND 2 MASSIVE HITS TAKEN, IRISHWING NOW AT THE HELM AND IS A VET GM AND KNOWS WHAT HES DOING SO I BELIEVE HE CAN GET THIS TEAM BACK IN SHAPE.

R.JOSI 82
J.HAYES 75

T.DALEY 85
B.MCNABB 76
J.HOWARD 88

FLA - IN
WEISS - 84

T.KENNEDY 75
D.RUNBLAD 77

CBJ - IN
C.SMITH 81
M.REINHART 70

DAL - OUT
K.JEAN 69
R.CLOWE 82
R.ELLIS 77

DAL - IN
A.MACDONALD 82
BARTKOWSKI 76
H.RUOPP 70

WINNERS IT COMES DOWN TO MACDONALD AND CLOWE, CLOWE IS CONSIDERED 3RD LINE DEPTH AND MACDONALD EVEN PLAYING ON A 3RD PAIRING DEFENCE IS STILL MORE VALUABLE AND WILL PROBABLY DO THE SAME OR MORE PRODUCTION WISE

MTL - OUT
L.LEBLANC 74
A.URBOM 74
H.SATERI 70

MTL - IN
T.BARRIE 82
R.KLINKHAMMER 75

EDM - OUT
C.STEWART 85
A.MACDONALD 82
S.DESPRES 80

EDM - IN
R.CLOWE 82
J.CAMPBELL 74
N.NESTEROV 69

LOSERS GM COLTHORN HAD THE WORST LUCK OF ANY GM LOSING WITH BOTH TEAMS AND HE LOST 3 GOOD PLAYERS AND REPLACED THEM WITH 1 3RD LINE GUY. THIS WAS A TOP TEAM LAST SEASON IN FACT WAS THE VERY TOP IN THE SEASON SO WILL BE HARD PRESSED TO STAY THERE THIS SEASON.

PHX - OUT
M.GRANLUND 77
T.BERTUZZI 80
T.BARRIE 82

PHX - IN
P.DUPUIS 82
L.LEBLANC 74

C.SMITH 81
C.GAUNCE 74
P.BUDAJ 78

TOR - IN
M.SCHEIFELE 77
T.BRENNAN 77
A.KHOKHLACHEV 68

LOSERS IF BUDAJ WAS A 3RD STRING GOALIE ON THIS TEAM SO THAT WASN'T BAD BUT SMITH WAS BEING USED ON THE 2ND LINE AND RELIED ON A LOT SCHEIFELE IS DECENT AND PROVED HE CAN PUT UP PTS IN THE PLAYOFFS FOR NSH BUT WONT REPLACE SMITH.

CGY - OUT
B.MCMILLAN 78
T.KRUG 74
M.ELLIS 73

CGY - IN
T.KRUG 74
Z.GIRGENSONS 74
M.STRANSKY 68

WASH GIVE GIRGENSONS THE SAME ICE TIME AS MCMILLAN AND HE WILL DO THE SAME OR MORE DESPITE THE 4 OVERAL DIFF. ELLIS IS BETTER DEPTH BUT AT THE LOW RATING WOULD BARELY IF EVER BE USED ANYWAY.

BUF - OUT
N.KADRI 85
C.CARRICK 68
J.SMITH 73

BUF - IN
S.DESPRES 80
E.WELLWOOD 74
C.CARRICK 68

LOSERS THIS COULD HAVE BEEN WORSE SINCE THE TEAM HAD NO LOCKS BUT KADRI WAS THE MAIN GO TO GUY FOR THIS TEAM LOSING HIM HURTS AND GAINING BACK A 6-7TH DMAN JUST DOESN'T MAKE UP FOR IT
