NHL Free Agency Update

Well, the frenzy has left everybody wondering what ramifications this free agency period has had the NHL. Salaries have gone up, the lower tier teams can't afford the better players to improve their team, and owners are reportedly losing money hand over foot.

"unstable Eddy" Belfour went to the Toronto Maple Leafs, CuJo [Curtis Joseph] signed with the Detroit Red Wings, Adam Oates became a Mighty Duck, Teemu Selanne knows the way to San Jose (and decided to stay there), the Columbus Blue Jackets have signed Scott Lachance (someone whom Penguins fans wanted in Pittsburgh) and Luke Richardson, and Robert Lang signed a big money deal with the Washington Capitals. But the most absurd signing of the Free Agent period is Bill Guerin who signed with the Dallas Stars for 5 years and 45 million dollars.
