With the NHL offseason upon us there will surely be plenty of players on the move. While unrestricted free agents will garner much of the interest, restricted free agents will also be on the market. While teams signing restricted are forced to give up compensation, many times the player is well worth the assets given up.
The former Miami Redhawk was a throw-in in the Tyler Seguin trade and came up strong recording 20 goals for the Boston Bruins. With Boston facing possible cap problems, and a payday in store for the 23 year old, he could be up for the taking via offer sheet or trade with the Bruins.
Much like his teammate Reilly Smith, Torey Krug had an amazing year for the Boston Bruins. Despite his lack of size, few defensemen have the goal scoring ability that No. 47 does. The Boston Bruins will surely keep him at all costs, but an offer sheet to drive his price up is still a possibility.
The former Portland Winterhawk came up strong for the upstart Columbus Blue Jackets this season recording 63 points. At 6-foot-3, few young players have the amazing mix of size and offensive ability that Johansen does. If the Jackets want to remain a playoff team, keeping their best player in this year’s playoffs is absolutely imperative.
Kreider’s size and speed turned the New York Rangers’ series against the Pittsburgh Penguins around and helped propel them to the Stanley Cup Final. With the Rangers on the verge of salary cap hell this offseason, the Massachusetts native may be a target for an offer from another team.
After contentious negotiations for his last contract, P.K. Subban’s relationship with the Montreal Canadiens may be on rocky ground. Given his Norris Trophy in 2013 and amazing playoffs this past season, he will be in line to be one of, if not the highest, paid defensemen in the league. Whether it is from the Habs or another team, one thing is for sure, Subban will get paid.
