Free Agency Discussion

Free Agency opens for the NHL today at 12pm ET/11am CT

The Wild will be looking to add a few pieces are that push them over the hump. They've already sent qualifying offers to Restricted Free Agents: Darcy Kuemper, Justin Fontaine, Nino Niederreiter,  and Jason Zucker by the deadline yesterday.According to reports from a multitude of sources,  the Wild are very interested in Jarome Iginla, and no surpise here, Thomas Vanek. They don't seem to be terribly interested in Matt Niskanen's price and term, so don't expect too much from there. Yesterday there were lots of moves that preceded buyouts. Nashville decided to not tender Michael Del Zotto and the Buffalo Sabres have bought out Christian Ehrhoff. Both defenseman the Wild may target as cheaper options to shore up the defense than Niskanen.

Our friends at SB Nation NHL ranked all of this year's Top 40 free agents.

Either way, it should be an exciting day of free agent action. Talk amongst yourselves as signings start to pour in this afternoon!
