As I’ve said before, July 1st is one of my favorite days of the year. It marks the start of NHL free agency, and the annual mayhem that comes with it. In the past, July 1st way a day that would see multiple marquee players swap jerseys and allegiances to join the highest bidder. However with the salary cap that is now in place, teams have taken to signing their stars to long contracts before they ever get to test the waters of free agency. Despite this, there are still a good number of impact players set to make waves this summer, so with that said, here are my top 5, in no particular order, players who could be on the move this summer.
Today’s version will cover only unrestricted free agents, so tune in tomorrow for five RFA’s who could be changing addresses.
