2009 NHL Free Agency: Who's still around on Day 3?
Today could be a semi-busy day in free agency, a few of the big names are expected to make their decisions today, let's take a look at a few of them:
Saku Koivu: The Minnesota Wild have presented him with an offer to play with his brother Mikko, but according to The Fourth Period, the Rangers and Devils have also submitted multi-year deals.
Rusian Fedetenko: The Penguins are hoping to keep him, his decision is expected today.
Alex Kovalev: Looks like Alex's run in Montreal is over after the Habs added Mike Cammalieri, Scott Gomez, and Brian Gionta. Kovalev was reportedly read to accept a 2 year deal from the Canadiens on the first day of free agency, but he walked away from the deal. The Kings could be a player for Kovalev. The Rangers still need scoring, would they be interested in Kovalev: Round 3?
Some of the other notable names still out there:
Maxim Afinogenov: RW
Miroslav Satan: RW
Alex Tanguay: LW
Anterio Nittymaki: G
Petr Sykora: RW
