Free Agent Frenzy - Open Thread

There is little to be excited about in Carolina when free agency opens on July 1

While it's expected to be quiet in Carolina, there will still be plenty to talk about as NHL free agency opens at noon today

Thomas Vanek, Matt Moulson, Mark Fayne, Dany Heatley, Brad Richards, and many, many more players will be signing new contracts starting today as NHL free agency kicks off at noon.

The Carolina Hurricanes are expected to take things slowly and look for the bargains, so it would seem that they will not be active today.  Ron Francis has scheduled a press conference at 2 p.m. at the PNC and will address the media at that time.  We will be there and will see what he has to say, but just Saturday the GM said that the team was not looking to make any major additions.

The plan is to add a fourth liner or two and a depth defenseman.

There will still be plenty to talk about though and we will be chiming in here throughout the day.  Feel free to discuss whatever comes up.

Happy Canada Day to our northern neighbors!
