NHL Free Agents: Catch of the Day

NHL Free Agents: Catch of the Day

BET À DAY

THE ILLUSION

Jack Campbell

Oilers | < strong>25 M$/5 years

Looking for a goalie, Edmonton has hired Jack Campbell. However, one wonders if the 30-year-old American is really the man for the job. He had a tough second half of the season and was unable to help the Toronto Maple Leafs get past the first round.

THE BIG LOT

Johnny Gaudreau

Blue Jackets | $68.25M/7 years old

The most popular free agent in this market, the attacker from New Jersey had expressed his intention to evolve in the East. He turned down a $10.5 million offer from the Calgary Flames to accept $9.8 million from Columbus.

THE MADNESS

Erik Gudbranson

Blue Jackets | 16 M$/4 years

A year after being forced to accept a pay cut, the 30-year-old defender managed to find a taker at $ 4 million per campaign. This will be his sixth team in four seasons. Clearly, CEO Jarmo Kekalainen saw something in him…

FIRST

David Perron

Red Wings | 9.5 M$/2 years

Even if he had worn the colors of five different teams, the Quebecer had never signed a contract with a formation other than the St. Louis Blues. The sequence stopped at five.

FAMILY

Eric and Marc Staal

Panthers | $750,000/1 year

The two eldest of the Staal family will pursue, and possibly end, their careers under the hot Florida sun. Last season, Eric played four games in the American League in preparation for the Olympic Games.

THE BEST FISHERMAN

Julien Brisebois < p> Year after year, we wonder how Julien BriseBois will manage to keep his core intact in Tampa. Yesterday, in the space of 10 minutes, the GM of the Lightning spent $160 million to retain the services of Mikhail Sergachev, Erik Cernak and Anthony Cirelli for the next eight campaigns.

THE HYPERACTIVE

Steve Yzerman

The general manager at Detroit has decided to take his Red Wings to another level. In a few hours, he managed to attract Andrew Copp, Olli Maatta, Ben Chiarot, Dominik Kubalik and David Perron.
