Here is my recap of the current chart listings for UFAs:
sim- no, can't skate, inconsistent effort
laaksanen- no- I'd rather have the uncle
gelinas- no- too old to help a team that probably won't make the playoffs. waste of $$
white- maybe if he is a good f/o man, but he looks like marty murray redux
markov- probably not going to happen, but yes
souray- no, we can't afford to sign a sieve for the $$ he'll get
floppa- NO! stick a fork in him he's done. I'll even let you buy the silverware at ikea
kimmo- yes, but I'm not as high on him as i was. not as quick as i thought and he needs to be paired w/ a fast, physical partner (coburn?)
poti- no, some O upside, but otherwise very avg
fedotenko- yes at the right #. wins corner battles and plays clutch. don't know what happened in TB, but he is more of a 3rd line fit than afanesenkov.
peca- no- if we could sign him for the conference finals, fine, but his reg season performance is avg at best- and he's injured half the time.
I'm looking forward to the availability of Briere, Drury and Gomez, because acquiring one of those centers will be the key to putting this franchise back above .500 and in the playoff hunt.
