For the first time in recent memory, NHL free agency, which begins July 1, could make or break teams. With the number of big names and the vast amount of talent floating around to the highest bidder, this is an exciting time for hockey fans everywhere.

First-line forwards are also on the market, like New Jersey Devils captain Zach Parise and Los Angeles Kings winger Dustin Penner. Not to be overlooked, Alexander Semin of the Washington Capitals is on the market, as is Calgary Flames veteran center Olli Jokinen.
