The Best of the Rest






As a lot of you may know (unless you where on Mars hanging upside down in a cave) the FA period is pretty much over and there is still some good talent out there willing to get a job. Here is a descriptive list of who is still good and where they might end up.

Ladislav Nagy: His production has been declining but I think he can still pull it off for a comeback. This guy has just too much of a raw scoring touch to be left rotting in the FA market. Team’s that are pitching out some offers are the Thrasher’s, Islander’s (it’s between him and Parrish) and……The Canucks….hmmm maybe plan B in case that bald Swedish guy doesn’t sign.

Dan Cloutier: Might as well give him a shot, the team that will sign him might get either a formidable backup goalie or an NHL finished player. Where he might end up I have no idea, but Colorado might be a candidate or a team not too sure about their backup.

Bryan Berard: Didn’t have that much of a bad season at 800k. This guy will get one last chance and the team to hand him that last chance will be the one that drafted him…yes the Predators and Senators (question of just connecting the dots) or else he might go to Europe.

Marek Malik : Another guy that still has something to prove . But seeing how he might end up in Russia teams might stay away from because he can use the KHL as leverage. If he does decide to stay in the NHL the Senators are considering him and the Rangers might give him a second shot for less.

Mark Parrish : Good for more than 15 goals and he could be a good temporary second line winger. For sure he still has some fight left in him and the teams that want him are the Kings, Islanders,Predators and Canucks.

Glen Murray: Because age is catching up to him he had a terrible season, maybe if he did the same thing he did last season for less he could be an interesting acquisition , look for Nashville to give him an offer or the Kings.

Brendan Shanahan: No need to explain that its either the Rangers or retirement (although the Devils are interested but I dought it with their current pay roll).

Chris Chelios: Surprising Detroit didn’t sign him…..oh yeah they got Brad Stuart, better, faster, stronger and YOUNGER. So where will he end up. Will he play for free in Detroit or will teams actually approach him with an offer…..or will it be the end of the line for Cheli. He once said on HNIC after hours that a team he would like to play for are the NY Rangers.

as for nagy, he's injured and likely won't even be in the lineup.

he's suffering from a very serious neck injury.j

why would Cloutier go to Colorado. They have Budaj and now Raycroft. Cloutier would not go there.

Alex Chiappini said...

Well in case the Avs dont really trust Raycroft they have a plan B,if he does'nt get the backup job it's either AHL or Europe. And I said it myself that not even I know where he might end up.

Why did the Habs sign Denis if they have Halak....almost the same context.
