During the NHL offseason, the biggest free agents were Zach Parise and Ryan Suter. Other than those two, there were not many others to choose from when it came to star power.
The next two Julys, the number of star free agents is going to be a little higher—that is, unless teams re-sign the players, as has been the case over the last few seasons. While a few of them are going to be re-signed, there is a big chance that the number of star free agents will be higher than two.
The following list is comprised of players who will be either be restricted or unrestricted free agents in the 2013 or 2014 offseasons if they are not re-signed before then.
