Your UFA Wish List

Posted 3:36 PM ET | Comments 7
July 1st is tomorrow, folks. Where has the time gone? Not complaining, though, I couldn't be happier as I prepare to bask in the excitement of the Free Agency Frenzy.
Oh, and it's also Canada Day, too.

Brian Burke, after failing to make his mark at the NHL Entry Draft, will presumably have big plans for tomorrow. He loves the limelight, after all, so it wouldn't surprise me if he tries to steal the show. On the other hand, signing a variety of second-tier Unrestricted Free Agents would also be considered a successful, albeit conservative, approach.

So I ask you, what's your UFA wish list? If you were Burke, who would you target?

Here's my wish list:

Mike Cammalleri (27): A 27 year-old, 40-goal scorer who can produce at a point-per-game pace if surrounded by the right linemates. Need I say more? Sure, he lacks in size, but I see him as an integral piece to the Leafs' offense in the near future. He'd look good beside Nazim Kadri too, heh?

Would sign for a max of: 5M

Mike Komisarek (27): A young defenseman who's just entering his prime. Coming off an average season with the Montreal Canadiens (hell, who didn't?) but still managed to lead the team in blocked shots and hits—again. Has the potential to be one of, if not the best defensive defenseman in the league. I'd sign him in a heartbeat if the interest is there.

Would sign for a max of: 5M (would have to be long-term deal)

Colton Orr (27): He'll turn the opponents' faces into mashed potatoes. Enough said.

Would sign for a max of: 1M

What's your UFA wishlist? Explain your reasoning's, armchair GM's!

NO SEDIN TWINNS!!!!Komisarek and Beauchemin; I think Gionta would fit, and try to steal away a stud later in the year. Or get a stud for Poor old Kaberle.

Steve Sullivan gets no love? The man may have been derailed for a little bit, but his return was rather impressive after two years away from the game.
