Free Agency Season Declared Open

Okay, NHL free agency period has started!! Let the shopping begin!

The trend in the NHL now is to trade away your high priced free agents to gain an extra compensatory draft pick when the players sign with a big market franchise.

Already, Theo Fleury went to the Sharks, Curtis Joseph went to the Calgary Flames, Ed Belfour and Tie Domi became property of the Nashville Predators. These smaller market franchises are hoping that they can either sign them or get the compensatory pick for 'em.
