The NHL Draft over the weekend wasn't quite as busy on the transaction front as people had expected. Only two major moves were made, but the foundations for other moves and possible signings as free agency begins today could've been set while the hockey world gathered in Montreal.
The Flyers, of course, made the biggest move of the weekend, acquiring Chris Pronger. But they aren't done as free agency begins at 12 PM ET. Will they sign a goalie today? Will they re-sign Mike Knuble today? Where will Martin Biron land? Where will Dany Heatley be traded? WILL Dany Heatley be traded?
There are a ton of questions and a ton of excitement is bound to take place today. Spend the afternoon here at Broad Street Hockey.
Here is some reading material to set you up for the day...
- A Flyers free agency cheat sheet, and cheat sheets from all around the league.
- The Flyers salary cap chart, updated as of 11:59 AM today.
- The top 100 unrestricted free agents, a depth chart of available forwards, a depth chart of available defensemen, and a depth chart of available goaltenders.
- The top 10 free agent wingers, the top 10 free agent defensemen, the top 10 free agent centers, and the top 10 free agent goalies. Sorry, Devils... no top 10 coaches list.
We know Briere has a bad contract, but is it really Wade Redden bad? Danny is at least good at hockey still.
