Free agency goals 2021 – SinBin.vegas

It’s July 1st, have a good free agency day!

What?… It is?… Tampa hasn’t won yet? ………. July 28!?!

Turns out Free Agency Day is still four weeks away, but today is still July 1, so we’re going to stick with the tradition and focus on who the Golden Knights could potentially go after more. late in the month.

Here are five pending unrestricted free agents that might make sense to sign contracts and don shiny gold jerseys on the Strip next season.

Alexandre wennberg
Center, Florida Panthers

The longtime Columbus Blue Jacket signed a yearlong deal with the Panthers last summer and proved he was a good player, but not a player who should completely break the bank. He has scored 17 goals in his 56 games and added one more in Florida’s short playoff streak.

He’s a responsible defensive center who could certainly thrive a bit more in a role where he plays with a guy like Alex Tuch. A few years ago, Wennberg had 59 points, including 21 power play assists.

Oh, and he’s very good friends with William Karlsson.

Blake coleman
Center, Tampa Bay Lightning

This one could get a bit pricey as he’s likely going to head to free agency with his name stamped on the Cup in consecutive years, but it’s a perfect match for what the Golden Knights are looking for. A center that has already received Selke votes while also scoring goals with a consistent clip.

Coleman has scored 22, 21 and 14 goals over the past three seasons, including two in under 82 games. He turned out just as good, if not better, in the playoffs and if he came to Vegas he would be a power play option as well.

Did you see this goal last night? Tell me the Golden Knights couldn’t have used that in their series against Montreal.

Brock McGinn
Left Winger, Carolina Hurricanes

McGinn would hopefully be the answer to the Golden Knights’ inability to score closely. He is a gritty type player who is not afraid to go into the hard zone in front of the goal. His goal numbers were heading in the wrong direction until this season where he scored eight in 37 games, translating to 18 in a full season. He then scored three more goals in the playoffs.

I imagine the Hurricanes would like to hang on to him, but with the pre-free agency expansion plan, they might leave him unprotected to save someone else. VGK could do a few maneuvers to get Seattle to “pick” him and then get him to sign the deal with Vegas.

It just struck a $ 2.1 million AAV deal, but it’s hitting unrestricted free agency for the first time. That number could easily double, but the adjustment might be too good for the Golden Knights to pass up.

Michael bunting
Left Wing, Arizona Coyotes

You may remember his name as a Golden Knights fan, as he scored twice in Vegas in April 2021. Bunting isn’t much of a household name in the league, as he only played 26. games in his NHL career. However, he is a good two-way player who has scored at every level he has played.

Bunting is set to become a Group 6 UFA, which means he hasn’t played enough to remain a restricted free agent. It’s certainly possible the Coyotes will re-sign him before he makes it to July 28, but if he does, he could be a good cheap option for the Golden Knights.

Sam Win
Center, Detroit Red Wings

Winning is a bit long in the tooth (he’ll be 32 at the start of the season), but he’s the kind of player the Golden Knights have been missing this season. He’s a smaller player, but he has excellent hands and a great ability to get creative in the attacking zone. He has rebounded a lot in recent seasons, playing for seven different teams, including several stints with Edmonton since 2014.

Early in his career, Gagner was a points producer, but that has diminished a bit in some of the recent stops. The scoring ability is definitely in him, as evidenced by his 50-point campaign in 2016-17 with Columbus. He’s defensively responsible and could potentially open up the Golden Knights attacking group by moving anywhere inside the 2nd, 3rd or 4th lines.
