If last weekend made your head spin with the trades by the Philadelphia Flyers in conjunction with the NHL draft, then you may want to take a seat and a deep breath before turning on the television this weekend.

That's right, folks. Free agency is here.

On July 1, unrestricted free agents hit the open market, and there are some big names set to do so.

Brad Richards, Tomas Vokoun, Christian Ehrhoff and quite a few others will be testing the waters, hoping to land the big-time contract every NHL player seeks.

In addition the the UFAs, one of the most interesting headlines of the weekend will be surrounding Steven Stamkos, who is a restricted free agent, but has not received a contract extension from the Lightning—yet.

Stay tuned for what should be a wild weekend in the NHL. This is all we've got until the season kicks off again in October, so enjoy it while it lasts.
