NHL free agent rankings and signings

Free agency begins July 1, so we ranked the top free agents available, with commentary from Newsday's Arthur Staple and Newsday.com's Mike Casey. We added each player's cap hit from last year so you can get a better idea of their value. And, just for fun, we added six restricted free agents at the end, some of whom could attract offer sheets from rival clubs.
