NHL Free Agency 2011 Open Thread

It's that day. That day when the world stops, and all of the hockey community focuses on TSN to see where the NHL's free agents will go. This year, we have a stunningly bad class of free agents, and not much excitement at all as most of the prime targets have simply re-signed with their team. 

Boredom may ensue as we watch the talking heads talk about whatever it is they will talk about when there are no signings and no signings to care about even if they do. We can hope for some trades, we can hope for something spectacular to happen, but the likelihood is... nadda. Just a warning. 

We'll be here for the day, tracking along with the hockey world as we find out who might come play for the Wild and where the Wild's former players head for their next challenge. After the jump, we will do our best to follow along with any signings throughout the day.

Remember, free agency starts at 11AM central time. For all our coverage leading up to today, please visit the Hockey Wilderness 2011 NHL Free Agency Page.
