Free Agent Misses

Over at Fox Sports, Spector discusses some free-agent signings that went awry.

Signing a top free agent may be more expensive than drafting a potential young star, but at the very least a general manager knows that via free agency he's getting an established NHL player who can help his club right away.

History, however, has shown that a major free-agent signing can sometimes turn into a disastrous move.

Illegal Curve is also wary of the big-ticket signings, as they rarely ever cover their contract. That being said, teams can find some gems if they are willing to sort through the bargain basement bin.

Ballhype: hype it up!
