Today is the day for NHL general managers to spend, spend, spend, on all the free agent talent that’s available. Where will Brad Richards land, and what about Tomas Vokoun? It’s not a particularly deep crop of unrestricted free agents this year, but the opportunity for teams to overpay for the services of the Tomas Fleischmann or Ed Jovanovski is there.
We’ll be on duty to provide reaction and whatever other humourous commentary we can come up with as offers begin to roll in and the rumours begin to surface. The big fish may not get caught today, but you can bet on a flurry of moves regardless.
Happy Canada Day to our Canadian friends, and let the 2011 free agent frenzy begin.
