Look At This Years UFA's

I did a quick browse of this years Free Agent list and my mouth dropped.

Of course, first, as always, I checked out who from the Hawks is left unsigned...

Just Jamal Mayers (who the Hawks have made quite clear there is no interest), but after that, the Hawks
have only minor leaguers (Henrik Karlsson, Alec Richards, Joe Lavin and Maxime Sauve). The NHL still shows that the Hawks have yet to sign Shawn Lalonde, but he signed to play in Germany, so I am not putting him on this list.

After I did that, I looked at some names that are still unsigned and I couldn't believe it.

ANAHEIM: Radek Dvorak, Matthew Lombardi, Toni Lydman (really?)

BOSTON: Jay Pandolfo, Wade Redden,

BUFFALO: Cody Hodgson (he'll get signed...he's too good).

CALGARY: Anton Babchuk

CAROLINA: Marc-Andre Bergeron, Chad LaRose

COLORADO: Milan Hejduk (is he going to retire?)

COLUMBUS:  Adrian Aucoin, Michael Leighton, Vaclav Prospal

DALLAS: (no surprises here)

DETROIT: Damien Brunner (really? Not yet?), Daniel Cleary, Ian White. (wow!)

EDMONTON: Darcy Hordichuk

FLORIDA: Jose Theodore, Petter Mueller

LOS ANGELES: Anthony Stewart

MINNESOTA:  (no surprises here)

MONTREAL: Colby Armstrong, Jeff Halpern

NASHVILLE: Chris Mason

NEW JERSEY: Alexei Ponikarovsky

NEW YORK Isles: Brad Boyes, Marty Reasoner, Tim Thomas (retired?)

NEW YORK Rng: Derek Stepan (really?), Roman Hamrlik, Nick Palmieri

OTTAWA: Guillaume Latendresse

PHILADELPHIA: Brian Boucher, Ruslan Fedotenko, Kent Huskins, Mike Knuble

PHOENIX: Mikkel Boedker, Brett Hextall

PITTSBURGH: Brenden Morrow (super wow!)

ST. LOUIS:  Jamie Langenbrunner, Scott Nichol

SAN JOSE: (no surprises here)

TAMPA BAY:  Mathieu Garon

TORONTO: Cody Fransen

VANCOUVER:  Manny Malhotra, Mason Raymond, Jim Vandermeer

WASHINGTON:  Marcus Johansson, Tom Poti, Wojtek Wolski (really?)

WINNIPEG: Alexander Murnistrov, Ron Hainsey, Kyle Wellwood

Now, there are some names on here that will easily find a team (most being their 2012-13 team). But when the Hawks solidified their team way back in July, this was a very strong action to show the players that they "care about the team"...These little things make a "happy locker room".

I can't wait to see the updated list a few weeks from now.
