There were just two other bloggers brave enough to take part in my UFA Challenge. They are Brian LeBlanc of NC Sports Talk and Ty Anderson Bruins blogger at Hockey Independent.

Jun. × ’10

Round One surprises and Non Surprises

Jun. × ’10

Wow round one was nearly as long as a baseball game, with all the drama of an entire MLB season.

Why Savard and or Thomas should go

Jun. × ’10

5 Quick reasons each why Savard or Thomas should go Savard: 5) Cap Space. Honestly, unless Suave, Colborne or the like are showing more promise than even their biggest boosters think, this is a silly reason.
