Found June 28, 2012 on Goon's World:



s/t to Brad Schlossman of the Grand Forks Herald... According to the Globe and Mail four out of the top 10 free agents are former players from the WCHA. That's pretty impressive in my opinion. Also, former Fighting Sioux forward and current New Jersey Devil Zach Parise will probably land in the top three as well.

More Parise To Pittsburgh Talk

from Sam Carchidi of Broad Street Bull, For the Flyers, the bad news coming out of Pittsburgh on Thursday was that superstar Sidney Crosby had signed a 12-year, $104.4 million extension, a cap hit of $8.7 million _ the same as this season. It’s bad news because Crosby, arguably the NHL’s best player when healthy, probably could have gotten a shorter deal….and more money per...

VIDEO: Wings fans look to recruit Parise and Suter by way of creative guilt

With the likes of Lidstrom and Stuart gone, the Wings are entering a very exciting yet potentially stressful free agent period that begins this weekend on July 1st.

Wild likely to pursue big-name free agents

ST. PAUL, Minn. NHL free agency begins in four days, which means Minnesota Wild general manager Chuck Fletcher might be getting his fishing equipment ready.

Will the Wings offer Schultz a contract?

Justin Schultz's agent from Meehan and Arnott of Newport Sports is going to be a busy man this upcoming weekend – the same agent represents Zach Parise as well. Redwings Front–Defenseman Justin Schultz hasn’t played a game in the National Hockey League, but that’s not stopping the Wings from all but guaranteeing the soon-to-be free agent a spot on their roster....

Peter Chiarelli Expects Bruins to Be 'Quiet' in Free Agency This Summer

WILMINGTON, Mass. -- The annual free agent frenzy is set to open on Sunday, but don't expect the Bruins to get involved in the bidding.

"My gut is telling...

Richard Cloutier: Operation Dubey Shield: P2

In this first part of this blog, I looked defensemen the Oilers could possibly trade for. In Part 2, I will look at free agency and if the Oilers can find any solutions there. 1. Justin Schultz - You know I had to start with this kid. He's one of the three BIG PRIZES this summer, along with Zach Parise and Ryan Suter. But unlike Parise and Suter, Schultz can't ask for...

At The Top Of The List

from James Mirtle of the Globe and Mail, Teams in need of high end scoring talent are going to be in tough this year in free agency. There’s not one high end centre available and the top wingers like Zach Parise, Alex Semin and Jaromir Jagr could be paid a fortune if Dennis Wideman’s contract on Wednesday is any indication. There are only 13 forwards who had more than 36 points...

Other free agent defensemen of interest

We’ve already covered some of the more intriguing players that will be available via free agency, but it doesn’t appear likely that the big-ticket guys like Zach Parise and Ryan Suter will end up in New York.  The 2012 free agent class is extremely thin, but at the draft last weekend GM Glen Sather confidently stated the team would still be “fairly aggressive” in free agency...

Justin Schultz sweepstakes begin

The June 25th deadline has come and gone and as expected, Anaheim was unable to sign defenseman Justin Schultz to an Entry Level contract, meaning he’ll be a free agent on July 1st.
