It happens each year in the playoffs: there are players not only fighting for the Stanley Cup, but to upgrade their own hockey future because they are scheduled to become free agents this summer.
As a result, a strong playoffs can mean not only wins but a lot of money for these players.
To appear on this list, a player has to still be alive in the postseason and a potential unrestricted free agent this offseason.
In addition, there has to be some potential issues or questions surrounding the player's future that can be resolved or settled in the mind of potential suitors with a strong playoff performance.
Feel free to mention any players you feel belong on this list that I left out, but please say why you feel the player belongs on the list.
