NHL Free Agency: Which 10 Players Should You Watch?
#10 – Center Andrew Copp (New York Rangers)
Few deadline acquisitions have made more of an impact than Andrew Copp did for them New York Rangers after I came across the trade from the Winnipeg Jets. Copp is a versatile player who can step in wherever it’s needed and that has tremendous value in today’s game.
Copp, who is going freelance for the first time in his eight-year career, is facing quite the payday after his shares as a member of Rangers began to skyrocket.
Just 27, Copp had 18 points in 16 regular-season games for New York, followed by 14 more in the playoffs. He did everything right to secure some serious cash in the free hand.
#9 – Defenseman John Klingberg (Dallas Stars)
29 years old John Klingerberg is one of the most valuable defenders in this year’s free agent league and is facing a serious payday. He’s signed a very team-friendly contract with the Stars that’s expiring and he’ll finally be able to get the raise he more than deserves.
A three-time All-Star, Klingberg couldn’t repeat his 2017-18 season in which he posted a career-high 67 points, but he remains one of the best offensive defenders in the game. In 74 games for the Stars last season, Klingberg accumulated 47 regular-season points and an extra point in the playoffs.
Klingberg is a respected part of it Dallas Stars Club and it has been reported that both player and team are open to a new contract. The only problem with this is the fact that stars Miro Heiskanen, Esa Lindell and Ryan Suter have already pledged a good chunk of their money. The desire to bring him back is there, but the money may not be.
