The Hockey News offered a comprehensive list of the best 10 available NHL free agents on Monday. But the list lost its headliner when Evan Rodrigues signed with the Colorado Avalanche.
But the article still illustrates that some quality athletes are still available. The list includes former Norris Trophy winner PK Subban, veteran defenseman Anton Stralman and dashing forward Sonny Milano.
Here’s the Hockey News list of nine top UFAs:
It’s unlikely the Red Wings will sign another free agent. Once everyone is healthy, the Red Wings have more veterans than roster spots right now. But it could always change if the Red Wings suffer preseason injuries.
Hope Ottawa signs Anton Stralman to a PTO. Right shot D with loads of experience. He’s not slow footed(very important) his 23 points would have him 2nd in D scoring with the Sens in 21/22. He also played a ton last year so you know the coaching staff trusts him
