PostSEASON 2 FREE AGENT BLOG

WELL ITS THAT TIME IN THE SEASON AGAIN WHERE WE REVIEW THE FREE AGENT DRAFT AND SEE WHO WON,LOST AND STAYED THE SAME.


LAK - OUT
J.FAULK 83
J.BEAGLE 76

LAK - IN
A.GOLIGOSKI 83
B.CONNELLY 78
S.SOURAY 80


WINNERS – FAULK IS A DECENT DMAN BUT GOLIGOSKI WILL ADD MUCH MORE OFFENSE TO A TEAM THAT STRUGGLED TO SCORE LAST SEASON, I INCLUDED CONNELLY CAUSE HE WAS AQUIRED IN THE DRAFT WHEN LAK TRADED DOWN HE WILL ALSO BE MUCH MORE HELP THEN BEAGLE, THEN TO ADD SOME DEFENSIVE DEPTH IN SOURAY WILL ALSO ADD TO THE OFFENSE.

TBL - OUT
F.NIELSEN 84
P.PARENTEAU 84

TBL - IN
M.DOMI 73
D.CARCILLO 77

LOSERS – LOSING 2 PLAYERS LIKE THAT ITS HARD TO PULL OUT A WIN IN FREE AGENCY, STL HAS SOME DEPTH UPFRONT SO THEY WILL BE MORE HARD PRESSED TO MAKE THE PLAYOFFS THIS YEAR BUT ADDING A GOOD YOUNG PROSPECT LIKE DOMI WILL HELP IN THE FUTURE.

PHI - OUT
M.STAAL 87
D.SEIDENBERG 87

PHI - IN
S.BENNET (PROSPECT)
T.PYATT 77

LOSERS – PROBABLY THE TEAM THAT TOOK THE BIGGEST HIT IN FREE AGENCY, LOSING 2 OF THE LEAGUES TOP DFD REALLY HURTS. PHI HAS SOME DEPTH ON THE BACK END SO SHOULD STILL BATTLE FOR A PLAYOFF SPOT, GETTING A PROSPECT IN THIS YEARS DRAFT WONT HELP THEM NOW BUT MAY IN NHL 15 DEPENDING ON BENNET BEING NHL READY OR NOT.

BOS - OUT
V.TARASENKO 83
M.WEBER 79

BOS - IN
F.NIELSEN 84
M.FOLIGNO 79

WINNERS – NOT BY MUCH BUT WINNERS TARASENKO AND NIELSEN ARE A WASH BUT GAINING MARCUS FOLIGNO OVER WEBER WILL HELP OFFENSIVLY A BIT. THIS TEAM STRUGGLED LAST SEASON SO IM NOT SURE IF THIS IS ENOUGH OF A CHANGE TO GET THIS TEAM UP THERE IN THE STANDINGS.

PIT - OUT
G.CAMPBELL 78
A.ASHAM 75

PIT - IN
C.MCDAVID 72
J.NOLAN 77

WINNERS – MAY NOT LOOK LIKE MUCH OF A WIN NOW BUT LOSING 2 4TH LINE GUYS AND GAINING A DECENT 3-4TH LINE GUY AS WELL AS A FUTURE #1 OVERALL PICK IS A BIG UPGRADE. McDAVID WONT BE USABLE IN AWHILE BUT WHEN HE IS PIT WILL HAVE A FRANCHISE TYPE PLAYER OUT OF THE DEAL.

WSH - OUT
S.HORCOFF 82
M.FRATTIN 79

WSH - IN
B.LAICH 85
N.SPALING 79

WINNERS – LAICH IS A WIN OVER HORCOFF PLUS WSH NEEDED A LW, AND GAME WISE SPALING AND FRATTIN ARE COMPAIRABLE BUT IF FRATTIN HAS ANOTHER NHL SEASON LIKE HE DID THIS YEAR HE MAY VERY WELL BE A MINOR LEAGUE TO START NEXT SEASON.

MIN - OUT
P.HOLLAND 78
R.ELLIS 78

MIN - IN
R.SMITH 81
E.WELLWOOD 76

WINNERS – BUT NOT BY MUCH R.SMITH IS DECENT AND WILL HELP THIS TEAM A LITTLE BIT MORE THEN HOLLAND OR ELLIS WOULD, WELLWOOD IS A DEPTH PLAYER AND DOESN’T DO MUCH. BUT MINNY FINISHED 3RD IN THE WEST LAST SEASON SO WITH THIS ADDITION SHOULD BE A TOP CONTENDER AGAIN.

AVS - OUT
FROLIK 80
EAVES 79

AVS - IN
V.TARASENKO 83
E.LACK 80

WINNERS – I KNOW GM BIOHAZARD WAS SAD TO LOSE FROLIK WHO HE PICKED UP NEAR THE DEADLINE BUT GAINING TARASENKO IN FREE AGENCY TURNS THAT FROWN UPSIDE DOWN, AND IN ADDITION LOSING A 3-4TH LINER IN EAVES AND GAINING A LEGIT BACKUP IN LACK IS A BIG IMPROVEMENT I EXPECT COLORADO TO BE IN THE MIX FOR A PLAYOFF SPOT THIS SEASON FOR SURE.

DET - OUT
T.PYATT 77
TLUSTY 81

DET - IN
J.GARDINER 81
M.HALISHUCK 80

WINNERS – DET WAS SHOPING TLUSTY AROUND FOR AWHILE SO THIS COULDN’T HAVE BEEN A BETTER GUY TO LOSE, PYATT IS A DEPTH PLUG. SO GAINING GARDINER IS A BIG WIN AND HALISCHUK IS A DECENT IMPROVEMENT OVER PYATT AS WELL. LOOK FOR DET TO BE IN THE PLAYOFF MIX AS WELL.

NYR - OUT
A.LARSSON 82
A.ALBERTS 75

NYR - IN
M.WEBER 79
J.GARRISON 83

WINNERS – THIS TEAM UNDERACHEIVED LAST SEASON AND GAINED STEWART AND THEY MADE THE PLAYOFFS FAIRLY EASILY, NOW WITH MAINTINING THE SAME ROSTER AND SWAPING OUT LARSSON FOR GARRISON IS A IMPROVEMENT AND THEN ADDING A BETTER DFD IN WEBER OVER ALBERTS HELPS EVEN MORE, I WOULD EXPECT TO SEE NYR BATTLING FOR TP IN THE EAST THIS SEASON.

STL - OUT
B.BENNETT 80
J.GARRISON 83

STL - IN
A.LARSSON 82
CON.BROWN 73

LOSERS – BUT NOT BY MUCH LARSSON IS A SLIGHT DOWNGRADE FROM GARRISON, LOSING BENNETT A FORMER 1ST ROUND PICK AND GAINING A GOOD PROSPECT BACK IN BROWN ISN’T BAD BUT BENNETT IS FURTHER DEVELOPED AND BROWN IS STILL FAIRLY UNKNOWN WHAT TYPE OF PLAYER HE WILL BECOME.

VAN - OUT
D.BOOTH 81
A.GOLIGOSKI 83

VAN - IN
B.BENNETT 80
E.CONDRA 79


LOSERS – BUT CONSIDERING THIS TEAM FINISHED TOPS IN THE LEAGUE LAST SEASON THIS WONT HURT THEM MUCH. BOOTH DOES DECENT IN THIS LEAGUE SO REPLACING HIM WITH BENNETT WHO ALSO DOES DECENT IF YOU GIVE HIM THE ICE TIME IS A WASH WITH POTENTIAL EVEN GIVING VAN THE WIN BUT GOLIGOSKI IS A GOOD OFFENSIVE DMAN TO HAVE AND GAINING A DEPTH PLAYER TO REPLACE HIM MAKES IT A LOSS.

CHI - OUT
D.CARCILLO 77
T.GLEASON 84

CHI - IN
M.STAAL 87
M.KRUGER 78

WINNERS – LOSING GLEASON HURT BUT THIS TEAM NEEDS A CHANGE DESPITE LOOKING GOOD ON PAPER THEY PLAY PATHETIC, FINISHING LAST ALLOWED THEM TO GET M.STAAL WHICH IS A BIG IMPROVEMENT OVER GLEASON AND THEN THE ADDITION OF KRUGER OVER CARCILLO THERE WILL BE NO EXCUSES FOR THIS TEAM NOT TO MAKE THE PLAYOFFS THIS SEASON.

NYI - OUT
J.NOLAN 77
J.GARDINER 81

NYI - IN
T.GLEASON 84
M.GOC 81

LOSERS – BUT NOT BY MUCH GOC AND NOLAN AREN’T TO FAR OFF IN WHAT THEY BRING TO A TEAM IN THE GAME ID EVEN GIVE THE ADVANTAGE TO GOC, GLEASON GARDINER SWAP TRADE VALUE WISE AND DOWN THE ROAD GARDINER BY FAR BETTER BUT GLEASON DOES BRING THAT HARD NOSED GRIT YOU WONT GET FROM GARDINER SO DEPENDING ON THE STYLE THIS TEAM PLAYS THIS MAY WORK OUT OK.

SJS - OUT
B.COBURN 85
B.DILLON 80

SJS - IN
A.MANTHA 72 (PROSPECT)
M.KOMISAREK 78

LOSERS – FOR NOW LOSING 2 OF THEIR TOP DMEN STINGS KOMISAREK IS A DEPTH 7TH DMAN AND WONT MAKE UP THE SLACK, GAINING A VERY GOOD PROSPECT IN MANTHA IS WHAT MAY TURN THIS INTO A WIN DOWN THE ROAD.

NSH - OUT
B.MCMILLAN 78
J.GIGUERE 76

NSH - IN
S.REINHART 71 (PROSPECT)
M.LAPPIERE 78

WINNERS – THEY DIDN’T LOSE MUCH DEPTH FORWARDS AND A LOW LEVEL BACKUP IS WHAT THEY LOST SO GAINING A TOP PROSPECT AND ANOTHER DEPTH FORWARD PUT THEM IN THE WIN COLUMN.

CAR - OUT
S.GOMEZ 80
M.KOMISAREK 78

CAR - IN
J.STOLL 82
D.DORSETT 76

WINNERS – THE DEFENDING STANLEY CUP CHAMPS ARE IN A GOOD POSITION TO REPEAT, GOMEZ WAS HUGE IN THE PLAYOFFS BUT THROUGHT THE SEASN DOESN’T HELP MUCH, STOLL MUCH LIKE GOMEZ SAVES IT ALL FOR THE PLAYOFFS AND STOLL IS BETTER DEFENSIVLY THEN GOMEZ SO THIS MAKES CAROLINA BETTER AS A WHOLE.

ANA - OUT
R.SMITH 81
A.VOLCHENKOV 83

ANA - IN
D.SEIDENBERG 87
K.BALLARD 81

WASH – RATINGS WISE IT WAS A WIN BUT PLAYER WISE IT’S A TOSS UP VOLCHENKOV IS MORE OFFENSIVE THE SEIDENBERG SO DEPENDS ON WHAT STYLE YOU WANT YOUR TEAM TO PLAY BALLARD IS A DECENT MIDDLE DMAN AND SMITH IS A DECENT MIDDLE FORWARD SO BASED ON PAPER IT’S A WASH BUT COULD GO EITHER WAY ONCE THE SEASON STARTS.

OTT - OUT
B.LAICH 85
D.BRIERE 81

OTT - IN
M.FRATTIN 79
C.FRANSON 83

WASH – ANOTHER WASH AS IT STANDS RIGHT NOW, OTTAWA ANOTHER TEAM THAT NEEDS SOMETHING TO SPARK THIS TEAM SO LOSING LAICH AND BRIERE WHO DIDN’T SEEM TO HELP OTTAWA TO BEGIN WITH WONT REALLY HURT THIS TEAM, FRATTIN GAME WAS PROBABLY WILL DO AS MUCH AS BRIERE AND FRANSON WILL PRODUCE ABOUT AS MUCH AS LAICH DID IF NOT MORE BUT MAYBE THE DIFFERENT TYPE OF PLAYERS WILL HELP SPARK THIS OTTAWA TEAM.

WPJ - OUT
M.KRUGER 78
A.STALOCK 72

WPJ - IN
J.FAULK 83
S.GOMEZ 80

WINNERS – WPJ ARE A TEAM THAT ARE ALWAYS IN THE RUNNING FOR TOP SPOT IN THE WEST BUT FAIL TO PRODUCE WHEN IT COMES TO THE PLAYOFFS. LOSING A GOOD YOUNG PLAYER IN KRUGER STINGS BUT FAULK WILL HELP SHORE UP THAT DEFENSE AND ADDING GOMEZ WILL BE A BIG BENEFIT COME PLAYOFF TIME.

FLA - OUT
N.SPALING 79
M.FOLIGNO 79

FLA - IN
D.BOOTH 81
P.EAVES 79


WASH – NHL WISE BIG LOSS BUT IN THE GAME BOOTH IS A GOOD FORWARD TO HAVE IF YOU GIVE HIM THE ICE TIME AND CONSIDERING THIS TEAM LOST A 88 RATED GOALIE LAST SEASON AND DID BETTER WHO KNOWS HOW THIS PANS OUT.

CBJ - OUT
E.CONDRA 79
S.SOURAY 80
HALPERN 78 - TRADE

CBJ - IN
RYDER 83 – TRADE
DILLON 83
R.ELLIS 78

WINNERS – GOT A BIG UPGRADE IN TRADING DOWN IN THE DRAFT, RYDER WILL PUT UP GOOD NUMBERS IF GIVEN THE CHANCE TO PLAY LOSING A DEPTH DMAN AND DEPTH FORWARD AND GAINING 2 DECENT TOP 6 DMEN WILL HELP A TEAM THAT JUST MISSED THE PLAYOFFS LAST SEASON.

DAL - OUT
J.STOLL 82
M.LAPIERRE 78
B.CONNELLY 78 - TRADE

DAL - IN
T.KOPECKY 83
Y.TLUSTY 81

WASH – KOPECKY IS SIMILAR TO STOLL IN PT PRODUCTION IN THE GAME SO NO CLEAR WINNER ON THAT LAPIERRE IS LOW LEVEL DEPTH AND CONNELLY AT THIS POINT DOESN’T DO ANYTHING SPECIAL EITHER BUT DOES HAVE THE POTENTIAL TO BECOME SOMETHING DECENT DOWN THE RD. TLUSTY IS INCONSISTANT WITH PRODUCTION BUT WILL PRODUCE MORE THEN CONNELLY AND LAPIERE SO AT THIS POINT DAL HAS A SLIGHT ADVANTAGE BUT GIVING IT A WASH WITH THE POTENTIAL OF CONNELLY BEING LOST.

MTL - OUT
DALPE 75
LACK 80

MTL - IN
M.FROLIK 80
F.ANDEREN 78

WINNERS – SLIGHTLY SWAPING A DEPTH FORWARD FOR DEPTH BACKUP AND THEN LOSING A DECENT BACKUP WHO IS CURRENLTY A NUMBER 1 GUY IN THE NHL FOR FROLIK WITH THE SEASON FROLIK IS HAVING I GIVE IT A WIN BUT IF LACK TURNS INTO A LEGIT #1 THIS COULD TURN INTO A LOSS DOWN THE ROAD.

NJD - OUT
T.KOPECKY 83
D.MOSS 81

NJD - IN
S.HORCOFF 82
B.MCMILLAN 78

WASH – KOPECKY PLAYED WELL WHILE HE WAS ON NJ BUT HORCOFF DOES DECENT IF YOU GIVE HIM ICE TIME AND HE WILL NOW BE THE NUMBER 1 CENTER FOR THIS TEAM SO SHOULD BALANCE OUT MCMILLAN FOR MOSS IS PRETTY MUCH A WASH WITH WHAT THE 2 OF THEM BRING TO THE TABLE.

EDM - OUT
D.POWE 76
K.BALLARD 81

EDM - IN
A.VOLCHENKOV 83
D.POWE 76

WINNERS – RESIGNED POWE AND UPGRADED THEIR DEFENCE, UPGRADE ISN’T MIND BLOWING BY ANY MEANS BUT FOR A TEAM THAT ALREADY DOES PRETTY WELL FOR THEMSELVES AN UPGRADE IS AN UPGRADE.

PHX - OUT
M.GOC 81
J.SLATER 78

PHX - IN
B.COBURN 85
G.CAMPBELL 78

WINNERS – BIG WINNERS THE RATING INCREASES ALONE MADE UP FOR WHAT THIS TEAM LOSS AND THEN TO ADD A TOP 4 DMAN INTO THE MIX THIS TEAM THAT ALREADY HAD ME SCRATCHING MY HEAD AS TO HOW TEY DIDN’T MAKE THE PLAYOFFS SHOULD BE A LOCK THIS YEAR.

TOR - OUT
T.MCGINN 74
C.FRANSON 84

TOR – IN
J.DROUIN 73
P.HOLLAND 78


LOSERS – FOR RIGHT NOW C.FRANSON WAS HUGE FOR THIS TEAM AND LOSING HIM WILL HURT, HOLLAND IS A UPGRADE OVER MCGINN, BUT IT WAS TO THE BENEFIT OF GETTING DROUIN WHO COULD POTENTIALLY BE COMPAIRABLE TO N.MACKINNON WAS THIS YEAR, SO THIS COULD POTENTIALLY BE A HUGE WIN DOWN THE ROAD.

CGY - OUT
D.DORSETT 76
J.BOLL 75

CGY - IN
P.PARENTEAU 84
D.MOSS 81

WINNERS – THIS TEAM WAS ANOTHER ONE THAT THE PLAYER UPGRADES A LONE MAKE UP FOR THE PLAYERS THEY LOST THEN TO ADD A TOP 6 FORWARD AND DECENT DEPTH FORWARD IF THIS TEAM CAN SHORE UP THERE GOALTENDING SITUATION COULD BE A SOLID PLAYOFF CONTENDER.

BUF - OUT
M.HALISHUK 80
E.WELLWOOD 76

BUF - IN
D.BRIERE 81
J.SLATER 78

WINNERS – BRIERE IS A GOOD OFFENSIVE UPGRADE OVER HALISCHUK AND SLATER IS A BIG DEPTH UPGRADE OVER WELLWOOD. THIS TEAM SHOULD BE IN THE PLAYOFF MIX AGAIN THIS SEASON.
