I'd like to see where everyone thinks the big FAs will end up, or just some general predictions about free agency.

My predictions-
1. Holland doesn't sign anyone tomorrow; LGW goes into all out panic mode
2. Wisniewski signs with CBJ before noon tomorrow

Eklund will have an E5 rumor about Doughty being traded to Det for Hudler and Doughty signing a 10 yr 30 mill contract(or something like that), people will believe it and we will all be mad at Kenny when nothing happens :ph34r:

Holland says Ericsson will be a top four defenseman and that was our addition this season.

No predictions from me. I never would have predicted Ericsson getting 3.25 mil a year from any team. Certainly not Holland. Let the chips fall where they may.
Jordan Tootoo will wreck shop.

We need someone like Parise that can penetrate the box.-blueadams

Ian White, and - or Tomas Kaberle will become a Detroit Red Wing.

That's all I got.

If we can brainwash him into thinking he's playing for Carolina - then I'm all for it...For whatever reason he hasn't done much outside of that organisation.

Ed Jovonovski, Patrick Eaves, and Chris Draper. After the Ericsson contract I lost interest in the free agent frenzy.
Holland is becoming gun shy and appears content with 1st and 2nd round exits but hey atleast we make the playoffs. I miss the good old days without a salary cap. Who would have thought that the salary cap maximum wouldn't effect us as much as the salary cap floor would. Grossly overpaid below average talent.

The salary structure is going to turn into what the NBA has. If that happens Bettman should be labotomized.

By the end of today, no one will care about where Jagr ends up.

Other then DET, PITT, and MTL another team is interested in Jagr, i think the other is team is WSH and it's not philly. :lol: and Philly won't be making a offer sheet to Stamkos.

Wings will make an amazing play to acquire Shea Webber. :) In all seriousness though I think they will sign Wiznewski and possibly another forward. Days like this always scare me. The Wings have been extremely quiet while the rest of the league has been anything but. Wings have money to spend so dont be surprised of a huge move. Then again this is the guy who builds his team in August not July.
BINGO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
