Habs’ chances at top 20 free agents

With the NHL free agency set to kick off in two days time, I thought it would be a good time to rank the top 20 free agents, and the Montreal Canadiens’ chances to land each specific one.

Will this be another disappointing free agent season for the Montreal Canadiens?

Will this be another disappointing free agent season for the Montreal Canadiens?

Just a few things before I begin:

• The top 20 list is the top 20 list in my head. So in case you’re wondering why such and such a player isn’t on the list, it’s because I don’t consider him to be a top 20 free agent (sorry in advance to all the Chris Neil fans).

• I also didn’t include any Habs free agents on the list, because the Habs already have an inside track with them.

• I didn’t include any free agents that already expressed a desire to return to their original team (ie- Scott Niedermeyer, Teemu Selanne, etc.).

• I don’t have any inside scoops to Bob Gainey’s brain, so figuring out the percentages if the Canadiens land each free agent depends on things such as team needs, player’s strengths, whether they want to play in a big city, etc.

And most importantly, I looked at the Canadiens past history of signing top free agents in the past.

So without any further ado, the top 20 NHL free agents, and the Habs chances of signing them!
