In less than a week, the NHL free-agent market will be open for business.
As the clock ticks down every second until July 1st, the airwaves continue to overflow with rumors, reports and speculation surrounding the 312 unrestricted and 286 restricted free agents set to hit the market this summer.
From the most prominent household names—Ryan Suter and Zach Parise—to the most obscure minimum-wage drifters—Steve MacIntyre and Brad Mills, to name a few—a plethora of players will be moving somewhere new this summer.
But then there's also the trade market, which packs the potential to be even more attention-grabbing than free agency. Veteran goalie Roberto Luongo and All-Star playmakers Rick Nash and Bobby Ryan have each been lighting up headlines lately and could shake up the league in a major way if dealt this offseason.
An evaluation of all of the biggest trade and free agency rumors at this time falls on the 10 coming slides.
