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
Might be good for me though,now maybe the Flyers can sign him.
I am not convinced Blake is a 40 goal scorer he may have had a career year last year with the Islanders, I think JFJ has overpaid yet again for a free agent. Blake is 33 years old and he got a 5 year contract. I think Kariya would have been a better fit, he is a consistent scorer and had 76 points last year in Nashville playing very tight defense. If he could have played more on offense he would have had 90 points or more.
JFJ needs to trade either Kubina or McCabe and get another scoring winger.

I also liked very much the Calgary Flames move for Corey Sarich (Tampa Bay). He's both young and experienced from a winning tradition, and came at a reasonable price. The NHL's best team core of defencemen just got better.

They were one of the best teams in the league in the 2nd half last year, and filled a hole on their blueline with Hannan, and added one of the best power forwards in the game. The Avs will be back atop the Northwest division this year.

Look at Philly to make the playoffs after a disastrous season, and the Leafs may have improved just enough to make it to the post-season.
