Here comes Free Agent Madness: Return of the Forwards. Yea, I did that, and no, I'm not sorry.
Name: Brian Gionta
Current Team: New Jersey
Current Salary: $4 million
Why: 89 points in 05/06. Stunning. But only averaging about 50/year since. Still, good pace for a second liner (Kozzy/Kane-White-G) , and could be a first liner in a pinch (Kovy-Pevs-G). Gionta's not a big dude, though. Speaking of big dudes....
Name: Nik Antropov
Current Team: New York
Current Salary: $2.15 million
Why: Is a big dude. Is capable of showing up big. Why not? Often doesn't show up big. But, Atlanta might be the place for him to get his head focused right, and I can't think of anyone better than Kovy for him to... wait, he wants HOW MUCH?
Name: Maxim Afinogenov
Current Team: Buffalo
Current Salary: $3.3 million
Why: I don't know why, but Max's name keeps popping into my head. Played 48 games last year, both due to injury (groin) and to increased press box time. Decent size, has a record of producing, and is looking forward to a fresh start somewhere other than Buffalo. Could be a sleeper.
Name: Marion Hossa
Current Team: Detroit
Current Salary: $7.45 million
Why: ...someone should really put the cap back on those Sharpies....
EDIT: I'd just like to say very quickly that I heartily endorse the idea of an offer sheet to that nice young man Phil Kessel. Though he may not be particularly photogenic (think the Hulk at an Olan Mills studio: "Okay, say cheeeeese!" "Graaaaaaaaggggghhhhhhnnnnnnnd."), he has proven himself to be a fantastic winger. He & Bryan Little will enjoy playing Call of Duty and making bunkbeds so they'll have more room for activities & stuff.
