I manually pulled this list from NHL Numbers and left out some of the lesser known players. Obviously some of these guys will be signed well before July 1, but here they are as it stands right now.


Johan Hedberg, Jonus Hiller, Patrick Lalime, Manny Legace, Peter Budaj, Marty Turco, Alex Auld, Dan Ellis, Pekke Rinne, Martin Biron, Ray Emery, Michael Leighton, Evengi Nabakov, Chris Mason, Antero Nittmymaki, Jose Theodore, Josh Harding.


Nik Lidstrom, Andrew Ferencem Derek Morris, Pavel Kubina, Henrik Tallinder, Joe Corvo, Aaron Ward, Adam Foote, Rusian Salei, Jordan Leopold, Dennis Seidenberg, Kim Johnson, Marek Zidilcky, Paul Mara, Dan Hamhuis, Paul Martin, Andy Sutton, Anton Volchenkov, Adrian Aucoin, Mike Van Ryn, Sergei Gonchar, Mark Eaton, Jay McKee, Martin Skoula, Rob Blake, Carlo Caolaicovo, Willie Mitchell, Brad Lukowich, Brian Pothier.


Saku Koivu, Teemu Selanne, Ilya Kovulchuk, Colby Armstrong, Maxim Afinigenov, Steve Begin, Mark Recchi, Mike Grier, Adam Mair, Ray Whitney, Matt Cullen, Scott Walker, Stephane Yelle, Oli Jokinen, Rene Bourke, Craig Conroy, John Madden, Fred Modin, Raffi Torres, Darcy Tucker, Marek Svatos, Mike Modano, Jere Lehtinen, Thomas Holmstrom, Todd Bertuzzi, Kirk Maltby, Jason Williams, Pisani Fernando, Mike Comrie, Dominic Moore, Alex Frolov, Owen Nolan, Eric Belanger, Petr Sykora, Thomas Plekanec, Glen Metropolit, Jordin Tootoo, Rob Niedermayer, Doug Weight, Chris Higgins, Vaclav Prospal, Arron Asham, Mathiew Lombardi, Robert Lang, Taylor Pyatt, Bill Guerin, Rusian Fedotenko, Matt Cooke, Patrick Marleau, Paul Kariya, Keith Tkatchuk, Alex Tanguay, Pavel Demitra, Brendan Morrisson.

Toronto have a lot of options as far as goaltenders. Some good back-ups and at this point quite a few #1 and #1B guys. Raycroft was also on that list. I couldn't bear to even type his name. Oh wait, I just did... Dammit.

Ottawa, if it's defenceman you're after it's actually a good menu to choose from. I do think Colaiacovo should become a Senator because "Giggles passes back to Coco Puffs" is just too awesome to pass up.

If the Leafs want a game-breaker out of the forward crop, they better work fast. Can Burke call Marleau's agent now and drop hints? Is that allowed?
