Wednesday, July 13th at noon ET marks the official beginning of the free agency period. As usual, plenty of activity is expected as teams look to bolster their lineups for 2022-23 and beyond, even with close to a flattened salary cap for the second straight year. Make your predictions on who lands where in our UFA 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 ET on September 1st, you will lose a point. (You will not lose any points for any other incorrect answer.) The pick deadline is 11:00 AM ET on July 13th, one hour before free agency officially kicks off. Scoring will be finalized as of 11:59 PM ET on September 1st; all unsigned players at that point will be classified as ‘other’. Max one entry per person.
Players will be removed from the list if they officially sign prior to the pool deadline but early entrants will still get the points if they picked the player correctly before their signing. Players that have been reported to have agreements in place but have yet to officially sign yet (Patrice Bergeron and Reilly Smith) were not included. Good luck!
