LW Anthony Duclair

The former third round pick of the New York Rangers enjoyed a break out season with the Ottawa Senators last year, scoring 23 goals in 66 games. And it was a bargain, as he only counted $1.65 million against the salary cap.

C Mikael Granlund

The Finnish forward was drafted by the Minnesota Wild, where he played before being traded to the Nashville Predators during the 2018-19 season. He enjoyed his best statistical season the year prior, scoring 21 goals with 46 assists.

C Erik Haula

Splitting time between the Carolina Hurricanes and Florida Panthers, Haula remains among the more intriguing players yet to find a new NHL home. He’s only two seasons removed from a career high 29 goal season with the Vegas Golden Knights and helping them reach the 2018 Stanley Cup Finals.
