Free Agency With Blueshirt Bulletin
The dearth of quality free agents available tomorrow may slow Glen Sather down, but we'll have live coverage of free agency all day nonetheless

Ilya Kovalchuk is the gem of this free agency class

Ilya Kovalchuk is the gem of this free agency class

Perhaps the best thing about free agency this year is that the class has become so weak. 

Now that Tomas Plekanec, Patrick Marleau, Nicklas Lidstrom, Tomas Holmstrom, etc. have re-signed with their respective teams, the list of quality free agents set to be available tomorrow has rapidly diminished.

GM Glen Sather’s recent remarks about how he plans to build from within, sign his own free agents, and avoid overspending this summer seemed farfetched a few weeks ago, but now it’s hard to imagine who is left that anyone will want to pay big money.  Of course, Sather showed with Wade Redden that he’s willing to give monster deals to undeserving players even when no other teams are interested, but let’s hope he’s learned his lesson.

The fact is, there really aren’t many free agents left who can expect big money deals in July.  Beyond Ilya Kovalchuk, who the Rangers likely won’t (read: can’t) be in on, there aren’t many forwards left who will command significant money.  Sure Teemu Selanne, Ray Whitney, Matthew Lombardi and Alex Frolov are nice players, but none will break the bank.  

On the defensive side, it’s possible that Sather might go hard after Anton Volchenkov, Dan Hamhuis, Sergei Gonchar, Paul Martin, or Zbynek Michalek, but the point is that the star power of this free agent class is severely lacking.  

For a compulsive spender like Sather, maybe its best that temptations are removed from the market before he gets a chance to fantasize about them. 






Blueshirt Bulletin will have live coverage of free agency starting at noon tomorrow.
