Sports fans and writers tend to say this every year, but the looming NHL off-season promises to be filled with crazy trades and massive free agent signings. But with confidence, I can say this could be one of the craziest in league history; one that promises to change the NHL landscape forever. When's the last time a Hart Trophy nominee, perennial All-Star and franchise talent hit the open market? Well Paul Stastny Jersey , John Tavares of the New York Islanders looks ready to hit the open market, unless the team can hammer out a massive extension at the last minute. He has teased wanting to stay and wanting to go, so July 1st promises to be an exciting day.
This year's free agent market is stacked outside of Tavares. It includes goal-scoring sensations like Rick Nash, Evander Kane and James van Riemsdyk. Future Hall of Famers like the Sedin twins and Joe Thornton could also change homes. Ditto for stars under contract like Henrik Lundqvist and Erik Karlsson. The teams they are on are trying to rebuild into competitors while the rest of the league would give top dollar for big names like theirs. Some of these players would have to waive no movement clauses to switch teams, but such a thing is becoming more and more common in the NHL as tension between owners and players grows.
