With less than a month to go until National Hockey League training camps open, plenty of experienced veterans have yet to lock down a place to play next season.
Some of these now-unrestricted free agents attracted solid returns for their former clubs when they were moved before the trade deadline. Now, those same players are available for free. All that’s needed is the right contract.
