Have UFA Rentals Signed With Their Old Teams?


Recommended Posts

Given that we are going to be trading some rental UFAs at the deadline, there has been talk of one or more re-signing with the Rangers in July (I can't see even fans most committed to a clean slate youth movement objecting to resigning Grabner, for example). Off the top of my head, I can't think of any UFAs dealt at the deadline who came back and signed with their former team. I suppose even if the relationship was good and the player had a house there etc., once you cut the cord, both sides seem to move on.


When Mike Richter was a UFA, Nashville took him in the expansion draft, because they knew that when the Rangers re-signed him which would give Nashville a compensatory draft pick under the rules then existing. That's a different situation, and Mike never played for Nashville and the whole arrangement, including the re-signing, was pre-ordained.
