Wednesday, July 1st at noon EST marks the official beginning of the free agency period although teams began to talk with pending UFA’s as early as last Thursday. Even though this is considered to be a weak free agent class, there still are a fair amount of notable players who could find themselves changing addresses over the next week. Make your predictions on who lands where in our free agency pool.
Scoring for the pool is simple. For each correct guess, you get two points. If you correctly select a player to go to the Canadiens, you get a bonus point for a total of three. However, if you pick a player to sign with the Habs and he has not signed with them as of 11:59 PM EST on July 31st, you will lose a point. (You will not lose any points for any other incorrect answer.) The pick deadline is 11:00 AM EST on July 1st, one hour before free agency officially kicks off. Max one entry per person.
Players will be removed from the list if they officially sign prior to the pool deadline. Those who entered early and correctly guessed that players’ signing/re-signing will still receive credit for their points.
UFA’s signed by the Habs in July: 5 – Joel Hanley, Mark Barberio, Bud Holloway, Ryan Johnston, and Alexander Semin.
