    Top Free Agents Available by Position

    LW- Thomas Vanek
    Patrick Marleau
    Pat Maroon
    Jamie McGinn
    Magnus Paajarvi
    Oscar Lindberg
    Gabriel Bourque
    Micheal Haley

    CENTER-Joe Thornton
    Derick Brassard
    Brian Boyle
    Riley Sheahan

    RW- Justin Williams
    Jason Pominville
    Troy Brouwer
    Drew Stafford
    Tobias Rieder
    Dmitrij Jaskin
    Stefan Noesen
    Devante Smith-Pelly

    DEFENSE- Jake Gardiner
    Niklas Kronwall
    Ben Hutton
    Dan Girardi
    Michael Stone
    Andrew MacDonald
    Ben Lovejoy
    Marc Methot
    (List provided by the Score App)

    Obviously the Ben Hutton thread is being hotly contested; with the lack of cap space, does anyone see any use of any of the above names to provide leadership for this young group? As time drags I'm sure some just want to play and would take a one year flyer contract from us to get back on the ice come October. Just some fodder while we countdown the dog days of summer.

    Being that he was recently bought out Michael Stone if healthy could be a decent cheap 7th defenseman.

    Nope. There's no room unless you're subtracting (again).

    I'd offer Smith-Pelly a PTO and see what he does in camp. He'd be a good replacement for Fast.

    I'm assuming he's not getting re-signed after this season. I'm not sure they need to retain him for $2M+ on his next contract.

    i mean im never against giving a guy a PTO, especially a guy with cup winning experience, but they are very different players. and I doubt Smith Pelly would be around another organization for more than a year anyway

    really is a shame. After the playoffs he had when they won a cup, he could have really cashed in on a pretty decent ticket through UFA but he stayed loyal to the caps and signed a cheap deal on 1 year. Probably could have gotten 2-3 years at double that on the open market

    My Fast jersey would become useless then.

    I don't see why we'd get rid of him though. He works as a 4th liner, works very hard, can kill penalties, and has a history of stepping up in the playoffs. I don't see why we'd want to get rid of him

    I just don't think he does anything particularly well. He's not very effective anywhere.

    Boyle would be a nice add if we had a couple million laying around.

    We don't have the space to be thinking about any UFA, however cheap. Let the kids play on defense. Forget about #7 has beens who aren't much better than Brendan Smith, who can always be summoned from Hartford with only minor cap consequences. If we bring him up, he will promise not to take four minor penalties in seven minutes again.
