We are nearly two weeks beyond the start of free agency, and for some teams, the offseason began in April. Now seems like as good a time as any to begin judging each team's best offseason moves.
That photo of Patrick Kane embracing Jonathan Toews may suggest the pair receiving matching eight-year, $84 million contracts that begin in 2015-16 was the best move by the Chicago Blackhawks this summer. That could be the answer, but revealing it now would give the reader less incentive to click through the slideshow, so that answer won't be revealed here.
(Secret: It's not their best move.)
What can be revealed here is this list has the most notable moves for all 30 teams, although not every team made a great or even good move since the offseason began. That results in having to dig deep to find one that applies or taking a bad move and seeing the positive move in it.
In some cases, no moves are the best moves. But in any case, we'll tell you whether each move has been a hit or miss.
Make sure you click on every slide to see every team's best offseason move, and hopefully you will enjoy it. If not, feel free to express your derision in the comments, and we will work to serve you better in the future.
