Who’s going to be available and who isn’t? Basically, what we’re seeing now is some teams are really trying to see if they can get some things done with their respective UFAs to be.
First of all, San Jose. They’re making a real run at Tomas Hertl. I don’t want to handicap it yes or no, but they are certainly trying.
Anaheim with Hampus Lindholm. The word on the Ducks is they have been very wary of term. Lindholm is a top defenseman, you see what defenseman have been getting, a lot of term. The Ducks have been careful with it, and we’ll see where it goes.
Quieter around the likes of Filip Forsberg and Johnny Gaudreau. But Jeff, the name that’s probably getting most of the traction is Claude Giroux.
