NHL Free Agency 2012: 11 Most Overpriced Players on the Market This Summer

The National Hockey League is less than two months away from its wildest day, and the competition for best free agents on the market has already hit a frantic pace.

With this year's class of UFA's (unrestricted free-agents) even shallower than usual, the elite available names—stars like New Jersey's Zach Parise, Nashville's Ryan Suter and Washington's Alexander Semin—are bound for a July 1st payday like no other.

Six million.

Seven million.

Eight million.

Week by week, the inflation levels keep rising, and the money values keep doubling for the few superstar free agents.

After all, a League's worth of headline-hungry general managers are starving to win at least one bidding war this summer, and that scathing competition will benefit nothing more than the salaries of these 11 ridiculously overpriced free-agents.

Who's destined to cash in the most come July? We'll name a select group of overvalued stars set for some colossal offseason raises in the coming slides.


Note: For a viewpoint on the other end of the spectrum, check out Bleacher Report columnist Kevin Goff's breakdown of 11 bargain free agents from earlier this week.
