The first day of NHL free agency did not disappoint. The Big Three centres all found new homes and Captain Canada landed in Colorado.
Which team made the biggest move?

Big Three centres all gone on Day 1
The Make Me Laffs should unload one of there stiffs on defence like either Kubina the human pylon or McCabe the one dimensial d-man, or power play specialist to sign Shanny. I think if the Make Me Laffs give Shanny a 2 or 3 year contract he may give them a home town discount. Its worth a shot, nothing to lose and everything to gain with a classy guy and a great leader like Shanny. Or get rid of Raycroft, I saw yesterday the Make Me Laffs signed Scott Clemensen he backed up Marty in NewJersey last year. Is the Make Me Laffs goaltending so bad they may try playing with 2 goalies this coming season and playing with 2 d-men and 2 forwards ? LOL

They can't afford both and it seems that Emery is the only guy they can unload at this time. Gerber is no slouch in the net and Emery will never be worth the millions he'll be seeking from arbitration.
Watch for a big scandal to break involving him and his off ice dealings

How is paying Blake, who is 5'10 and injury-prone, $4M a year untill he's 39 years old a good signing?

But, Jimmy, what is JFJ going to use for funds to sign Shanahan? He's not going anywehere for less than $4 million. And why should he? I think the reason he's not been re-signed yet by the Rangers is that they're trying to get him cheap - because they too are now cash-strapped. Big time.
Ottawa hasn't done a thing yet and Murray has at least $5 to $7 million to spend (assuming Emery doesn't eat up a huge chunk of it).

Those hypocrite Leaf fans?
Get your story straight. The most hated Islander after the '02 series was Steve Webb not Blake.
Rangers might have made the most impressive signings if they do something about their defense. Still seems like too much money spent though. Avs made a couple of nice moves as well.

As for the question: the Flyers have vaulted back into the Eastern playoff picture as have the Panthers with Vokoun in the bag. They will replace Atlanta and the Islanders who will drop out of the top 8. The Leafs will again finish just out of the picture.
