Ranking Top NHL Free Agents in 2013 Class After Corey Perry's New Contract
Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports

Corey Perry's decision to re-sign with the Anaheim Ducks has made the 2013 NHL free agent class substantially weaker, but there are still several quality players for teams with salary cap space to pursue in the summer.

It will be interesting to see how much money these players make as UFAs, because teams will have less money to spend on free agent additions with the salary cap dropping to $64.3 million for the 2013-14 season.

This could result in an offseason in which only a few teams have a lot of room under the cap ceiling to sign marquee players, and one of those teams could be the Toronto Maple Leafs, who are the richest club in the league (via Forbes) and currently have $24.5 million in cap space for next season (per Capgeek).

Let's take an updated look at the five best players eligible for unrestricted free agency this summer following Perry's choice to remain in Anaheim for the next eight years.
