Some offseason signings make big headlines when they happen, while others go practically unnoticed.
But while big contract numbers and high-profile players may get attention in July, it's more important for those newcomers to play well once they take the ice.
Here is a look at 10 offseason signings that are making GMs look like geniuses. Some of these are high-profile free agents, some of them are re-signings of players that were already on a team's roster and some were afterthoughts to most members of the media, but all 10 of these players have been successful on their new teams.
Keep in mind that players acquired in trades are not part of this list (so no Rick Nash).
