The first wave of free-agent signings in the NHL this weekend didn't look like teams were under new financial constraints as they prepare for the 2013-14 season.

The salary cap has been reduced to $64.3 million per team, so it wouldn't seem likely that a team would give a forward who scored three goals a five-year, $24.25 million contract, but that's just what the New Jersey Devils did when they signed Ryane Clowe.

The Clowe signing shows that some teams are thinking with their heart first and wallet second.

Here, we grade the biggest signings of the first weekend of free agency.
