With the NHL season winding down, it's time to start to turn our attention to free agency.
Beginning July 1, teams will vie to sign the players that can put them over the top. Conversely, making poor free agency decisions can set a team back for years.
Last season, the New York Rangers' decision to sign Brad Richards worked wonders, as he helped lead them to the Eastern Conference Finals. On the other hand, the Buffalo Sabres paid defenseman Christian Ehrhoff big money, but he was a big disappointment and the Sabres did not make the playoffs.
Who are the best players in this year's crop? We'll look at 10 of the best unrestricted free agents, as well as where they could end up. For all free agents, both restricted and unrestricted, head over to CapGeek.
