UFA Weekend Open Thread



Ove 70 players have been signed already, but there remains a few names and a few trade potentials out there. It’s possible more things will go down this weekend, so feel free to use this post as an open discussion thread.


  • Captain Ron

    I’m all for bringing back Morrison at the right price. He’s a really intelligent player who fit in very well last year. Was really effective on the penalty kill too if I remember correctly. Love it that he is so versatile and if Langkow regains his form having him around will help a lot. He’s not a long term solution but for one year he would really help in keeping us respectable under the circumstances. On the other hand I’m not keen on Langenbrunner or Hannan at all. Hope we can find something better than those two.

  • The Preds landed Bergfors today – one year, $575k! Im stunned he came so cheap and annoyed the Flames weren’t in on that. It looks like Poile was only guy who even gave him a call.

    Not a lot left in the UFa cupboard at this point.

    • Greg

      There’s gotta be some issues with Bergfors for teams to keep passing up on him like that.

      I’m surprised Babchuk, Stralman, Kaberle and McCabe are all still available.

      Yeah, there has to be something up with Bergfors….

      he came out like a house on fire after the kovalchuk trade. Although I didn’t make much of a habit of watching the Thrashers at that time, he seemed to be the primary chip going the Thrashers way in that trade. Less than a year and a half later, the kid is onto his fourth team?
