Let me know (with a link) if I've missed anyone or included someone who doesn't belong.

UPDATE Note that this list was put together after the first day of signings and is meant to be a look at which players are still available — not those who signed immediately on July 1.

I was going to say that Jaroslav Hlinka had 28 points for Colorado this past season and TSN.ca has him listed as an unrestricted free agent. Then I realized he'd signed a 2-year contract in the SEL. Very nice list, and thank you for putting it up.

 
At 12:54 AM, July 02, 2008, Blogger Jonathan said...

Curtis Brown, with 9 points, formerly of the San Jose Sharks is missing on the forwards list.

 
At 1:02 AM, July 02, 2008, Anonymous Anonymous said...

Straka's situation is still up in the air. It's reported in Czech R. that he has a deal there but his agent here denies these rumours.

Metropolit signed 2yr. deal with Philly.

Kapanen is going to play in Russia.

Magnus Johansson? Some reports in Sweden tells anybody who cares that he has already signed an extension. But is it for real?

Metropolit was snatched up earlier and hes still on there

James, didn't B. Morrisson sign with CBJ?

Zyuzin is in Russia now.

"Medvedev said his league has already signed three NHL players scheduled to be unrestricted free agents this summer: forward Chris Simon, defenceman Andrei Zyuzin and goaltender John Grahame."-cp

 
At 11:37 AM, July 02, 2008, Anonymous Anonymous said...

what do I want? An oven to stick my head in... call me pessimistic (because I am), but it's looking like a worse off-season than last year so far. All the good defensemen are gone now... Campbell, Redden, Commodore, Finger, Roszival... all gone. Anyone else out there won't help us all that much. Let's hope Bogosian can make the team and make and immediate impact, but let's be real, the dude's not even 18 yet. No two ways about it, this sucks for Blueland.

 
At 11:57 AM, July 02, 2008, Blogger Chemmy said...

I think the saddest thing about the last Anonymous comment is that he wants a d-man so badly that he thinks Finger was a good signing.

 
At 12:07 PM, July 02, 2008, Anonymous Resolute said...

According to local scribes, Vandermeer has re-signed in Calgary, and Glencross is trading his oil drop in for a flaming C. Should be announced today, apparently.

Kristian Huselius' place on that list is quite interesting. I wonder who will sign him, and how much they will (over)pay for him.

 
At 12:17 PM, July 02, 2008, Anonymous Anonymous said...

From my understanding by listening to the NHL show on Sirius channel 122, Bret Hedican is retired, or retiring. So...I guess he can be removed from the list.

Hossa to Detroit!

 
At 12:50 PM, July 02, 2008, OpenID tersa said...

Tomas Plihal of the San Jose Sharks, who had 3 points in 22 games last season, is also UFA and not on the list.

Hossa: one-year, $7.4-million contract (TSN)

 
At 12:56 PM, July 02, 2008, Blogger Jennie said...

The Pens offer was 7 million a year for five years, and he takes 7.4 for one.

I guess he really wanted to play for the Stanley Cup winner.

 
At 12:58 PM, July 02, 2008, Anonymous Karina said...

Everytime I look at that list, I'm stunned that Hossa only had 66 pnts last year. The way everyone's clamouring over him you'd think he had 100+.

 
At 1:01 PM, July 02, 2008, Anonymous Keith said...

...and another big ticket player takes less money to stay away from Edmonton.

Though if Hossa wants a shot at the Cup, Detroit is the best place to go.

 
At 1:02 PM, July 02, 2008, Anonymous Anonymous said...

Datsyuk, Zetteberg, and Hossa.

Will anyone score on that line all season?

 
At 1:14 PM, July 02, 2008, Anonymous that guy said...

whoever said there are no defensemen left forgets the value of veteran leadership. there are plenty of defensemen, who although past their prime, can still contribute and be positive leaders for teams out there (cough Sabres cough).

as for hossa, it's scary to think what detroit's top two lines might look like.

James: Curtis Brown

http://www.mercurynews.com/sharks/ci_9742000

"The Sharks have told center Curtis Brown that he will not be getting a contract offer. At 32, Brown is coming off a season in which a hand injury and coaching decisions limited him to 33 regular-season and seven playoff games."

Didn't Magnus Johansson re-sign with Florida? I didn't check from their site or anything, just a thing that I remember reading somewhere. Probably some Swedish rag like Aftonbladet.

Pretty sure Rachunek's off to Russia. This is the closest thing to confirmation I could find:

Whatever happened to Danny Markov? Anyone think he'll ever see any more icetime in the NHL?

 
At 12:06 PM, July 10, 2008, Blogger Justin said...

He played for the Moscow Dynamo this past season. 29 games, 4 assists, 74 penalty minutes.

 
At 12:16 PM, July 10, 2008, Blogger Nick said...

Hm, maybe not then... He was a solid blueliner his last season on the wings though

Clemmensen re-signed with Devils

 
At 9:18 AM, July 11, 2008, Blogger poploser said...

is anyone else surprised Nagy is still on the list? Yeah, he's had two bad years (with injuries, i think). But if he's healthy, he might be a nice surprise for a team needing a cheap offensive winger.

"is anyone else surprised Nagy is still on the list? Yeah, he's had two bad years (with injuries, i think). But if he's healthy, he might be a nice surprise for a team needing a cheap offensive winger." I'm not surprised at all, he is an extremely moody player that has motivational issues and his neck hasn't fully healed yet. I could see him falling in to a Yanic Perreault situation if he is lucky where a desperate team signs him 1/3rd of the way in to the season because as of right now it is unlikely he will be healthy enough to participate in training camp.

OMGWTFBBQ Pens re-signed Kris Beech.

They also signed native Bill Thomas, who played more games for the Yotes this year than Beech did for the Pens (and earned the same number of points), but I guess he's not NHL enough for the list.

 
At 5:49 AM, July 21, 2008, Blogger Tom said...

I think Points per game is a more accurate way of showing how good the FA are then Points.
Yes, I'm an Avs fan and hate to see Sakic and Foppa so far down the line

James:

The San Jose Sharks beat writer, David Pollack, reported in his blog on Friday that Curtis Brown signed a two-year contract with a team in Switzerland. So he's off the market as well.
