With only two teams left in this NHL season competing for the Stanley Cup, that leaves fans of 28 other NHL teams looking forward to Jul. 1 when the NHL free agency period opens up.
2009 has one of the better lists of available free agents compared to recent years.
It's also anticipated to be one of the most unpredictable free agency offseasons because of the tough economic times.
Therefore, players may choose the longer contract with the less competitive club (teams that could afford to deal a big contract because of their cap) over the more competitive/stable franchise offering less money.
My top 10 list consists of free agents to potentially play for a different team than they were playing for last season.
