UFAs Available as of July 1, 2010

Having looked at the UFA

s available one month after

the the 2010 UFAs became available, let's look at the team an NHL

GM could have built with the assumption that he was able to sign any of the available choices. This exercise is quite

specific: hypothetically if an NHL GM were allowed to select from all the available players who were UFAs as of July

1, 2010, could he select a competitive team. For purposes of this exercise, the salary cap is not under consideration.
