Who's Left?

Most of the NHL free-agents have been signed, but there are still some quality players out on the market.


Centre- Peter Forsberg. The 34-year old from Sweden had yet another injury riddled season, as lingering foot problems took some of the jump from his game. But Forsberg still managed 55 points with the Flyers and the Preds. He should go for $4-6 million dollars per year with 1-2 years, because of his injury troubles.

Right Wing- Teemu Selanne. Selanne didn't miss a beat in his 17th NHL season scoring 94 points and coming 2nd in the Rocket Richard trophy race. Selanne has expressed little intrest in retiring at the ripe age of 37, and should probably get $4-5 million dollars in a short-term deal.

Left Wing- Nils Ekman. Ekman had a rough season playing only 34 games, but did manage to get 15 points. He has shown over his short flashes of greatness scoring 21 goals for San Jose in the '05-06 season. He should get signed for $2-3 million dollars and 2-3 years.


Danny Markov- Markov had a great year with Detroit playing as a solid 2nd line defenceman for the entire season. He still has some years on him, so maybe 3 years and $2 million for Markov

Andy Sutton- He played a good Atlanta team last and like Markov is a good 2nd line defenceman. He had a bad year in terms of offence, but has shown in the past that he can produce. 2 years and $1.5 million for Sutton.


Curtis Joseph - The veteran goalie had another good year with a bad Phoenix team. His age seems to keeping teams away from him. Although he is past his prime, he can still produce, so probably 1 year and $1-2 million dollars for Cujo.

There are many other players that are out on the market that can produce, but those are the best 6.
