UFA Compendium

Here is the complete list of players that I have done UFA looks for. It is not a complete listing of all UFAs, but it does help with most of the guys who seemed to be in the Oilers crosshairs (well, prior to the craziness of the last two days, anyway).

Forwards

*Sean Avery
*Valterri Filppula (RFA)
*Bobby Holik
*Marian Hossa
*Kristian Huselius
*Brad Isbister
*Jaromir Jagr
*Ryan Malone (signed)
*Brendan Morrison
*Ladislav Nagy
*Markus Naslund
*Owen Nolan
*Byron Ritchie
*Brian Rolston
*Michael Ryder
*Miroslav Satan
*Cory Stillman
*Jason Williams
*Stephane Yelle

Defensemen

*Mike Commodore
*Mark Eaton
*Jeff Finger
*Dmitri Kalinin
*Marek Malik
*Mattias Norstrom (retired)
*Brooks Orpik
*Wade Redden
*Kurt Sauer

My own personal strategy for deciding which free agents to pursue can be found here. I generally err on the side of caution; I am a big believer in the neccessity of players outperforming their contracts, and UFA season is always a sellers market. That said, the 2nd-tier guys, the quietly effective, less-heralded players can be signed to great effect.

My free agent targets would be the following:
One of Jagr, Williams or Ryder and one of Sauer or Malik.
