Let the frenzy begin.
A holiday in Canada, July 1 is anything but in the NHL as GMs work the phones, agents table their demands and players wait to find out which uniform they’ll be wearing for at least next season and, in many cases, the foreseeable future.
From the moment the bidding begins at noon EST Wednesday through to midnight, THN.com has you covered with the latest, up-to-the-minute analysis on each significant signing and what it means for both team and player. Following the first 12-hour fury, keep track of each signing on our A-to-Z free agent list, daily transaction log and team reports.
And, of course, don’t forget to let us know what you think of the day’s events by leaving a comment and voting on who you think overpaid, who you think made a good deal and who has work to do to improve their chances for next season.
While you wait for the deals to be made, check out THN.com’s breakdown of each division’s off-season - what each team needs, who they have in the prospect pipeline, which players are becoming free agents and more.
