It looks as though free agent signings are shifting the power in the league. I’m shocked by several moves, most notably:
Sabres got rocked, losing BOTH Drury and Briere
NYR is looking good for a cup after signing BOTH Drury and Gomez (from NJ) (I just threw up a little). Considering the way they ended last season…
Pens are just waiting to be a dynasty with their existing young talent and new pickups.
Red Wings lost a few key players. It’s like they gave up.
Ducks sign Matt Schneider and Bertuzzi, which is pretty amazing, but considering that S Neds. and Selanne are retiring, they’re still in a big hole. Additionally, it looks as though they won’t have the cash to sign Giggy again.
Kings should be more of a force this year, with a few decent acquisitions.
I’m not sure what the Leafs are doing. Jason Blake is great, but they need to be more concerned with keeping the puck out of the net. Pick up Giggy! Maybe they blew all of their money on Antropov.
I’m looking forward to seeing what happens to the rest!
