What the Heck Just Happened? – Free Agency 2016

Free Agency has been frenzied so far. This is what has transpired to date.

The following list shows the state of the TSN top 50 free agents. For some reason, they had Jimmy Vesey on the list, when he isn’t actually a free agent until mid-August. They also had Stamkos on the list until he was signed late last week, so I’ve stuffed him back in at position zero.

Also, Alex Radulov is unexpectedly back from the KHL, signing with the Habs.
The Bruins have bought out the last 2 years of Dennis Seidenberg’s contract and signed Torey Krug for 4 more years.
Who’s left? Well, there’s a lot of players left, just noone we may care about. Here is what the folks at NHL.com have to say. (Note that Roman Polak has since been signed by the Maple Leafs and P-A Parenteau by the Isles).

Rumor has it that the Bruins are sniffing around Kris Russell.
The Bruins are a little thin at D (Having Chara, Liles, Krug, KevAn & McQuaid signed up, and having Colin Miller, Joe Morrow & Tommy Cross on the bubble).
Luke Schenn is available, as are Matt Bartkowski, Justin Schultz & Kyle Quincey.
