Most points in 2013-14David Legwand, who had 51 points (14 G, 37 A) with Detroit and Nashville. Apparently Buffalo and Ottawa may be interested.

Most goals in 2013-14Daniel Alfredsson, who had 18 goals for Detroit. At 41 years of age, he may choose to retire.

Most PIMs in 2013-14Dan Carcillo, who had 100 PIMs for the Rangers and Kings. He also scored twice for New York in the postseason.

Highest average ice time in 2013-14Chris Butler, who logged 20:16 per game on Calgary’s blue line.

Most points by a defenseman in 2013-14Andre Benoit, who had 28 points (7 G, 21 A) for Colorado.

Highest Corsi in 2013-14 — Andrei Loktoniov, at 55.1% for Carolina and New Jersey. Was not given a qualifying offer by the ‘Canes after getting hurt at the Worlds.

Highest plus-minus in 2013-14Dustin Penner, who was a plus-25 with Washington and Anaheim. Also scored 14 times. And, in a related story, had the highest PDO (105.5), too.

    Can Alfredsson play left wing? If he signed a cheap deal, the Caps could use him. As it stands, there really is no 2nd line LW unless Burakovsky makes the team.

      What? Are you Dan Bylsma? He’s the only one who thought playing a HOF bound right wing at left wing late in his career would be a good idea.

      • rsl22 - Jul 3, 2014 at 1:04 PM

        Oates made OV play RW, but the fact is there’s no reason that OV couldn’t move back to LW to let Alredsson play RW.


        As for the all the down arrows, I know and understand it isn’t going to happen. But if the guy wants a Cup, he’s gotta go somewhere with defense, and the Caps have that right now.

      If detroit doesn’t re-sign Alfredsson i dont think he will be playing… Not that another team wouldnt want him, he played great for detroit. I just don’t think he wants to up root his family, move, settle in and play somewhere else all over again. That is just my gut and i have heard his family likes living in Michigan.

    I’d like to see the Rangers sign Loktionov, just for depth.

    • pj608 - Jul 3, 2014 at 4:18 PM

      I am a Devils fan… Loktionov was a bust. He was good when we had Kovalchuk but he is lazy when it comes time to get the puck and he needs an allstar next to him or he cant do anything. I dont know what it is. I had really high hopes for him in NJ but no good.

    Alfie is staying with Detroit unless he asks too much or retires. So going to Caps for cheap is not a possibility.

    He also just moved his family to MI and they are close with the other swedes on Wings. Its detroit or retirement.

    • rsl22 - Jul 3, 2014 at 12:40 PM

      I didn’t mean it was going to happen or even a possibility, but it’d still be a nice addition. Also, the Caps have Backstrom and Mojo, two Swedish Olympians, and will likely have Burakovsky if they don’t sign another forward, so there would be plenty of meatballs on the table for him in DC.

    That PDO stat must not mean all that much when Michael Del Zotto is in the top 25 lmao.

    • xaile94 - Jul 3, 2014 at 12:52 PM

      you realize that’s just the UFAs listed, right?

      • cliffatola - Jul 3, 2014 at 11:32 PM

        Which Del Zotto is at this point.

    • hockey7515 - Jul 3, 2014 at 1:05 PM

      PDO is often based on luck, too.

    Most games suspended in 2014 playoffs – Dan Carcillo, who missed 6 for being a hotheaded idiot.

  6. ddarkstar2 - Jul 3, 2014 at 12:51 PM

    Has anyone picked up David Booth since his buyout by Vancouver?

    • pjblake2redwings - Jul 3, 2014 at 3:21 PM

      no one has yet

    • cliffatola - Jul 3, 2014 at 11:40 PM

      After what the Canucks said about him being one of the weirdest guys they have ever employed he will be an FA for a bit.

  7. strictlythedanks - Jul 3, 2014 at 1:10 PM

    So I am assuming that if the ducks hadn’t already signed Clayton Stoner, he would be atop the ‘highest players’ list?

    • hockey412 - Jul 3, 2014 at 3:16 PM

      I was going to make a similar joke about Ryan Malone…yours is even better – well played….

      • Andee - Jul 3, 2014 at 4:14 PM

        Don’t forget Ryan Miller.

    • wutangwild - Jul 3, 2014 at 3:29 PM

      I will still sport my Stoner shirt with pride even if he’s no longer employed by the Wild. Still can’t believe the Ducks ponied up THAT much money

      • strictlythedanks - Jul 3, 2014 at 6:14 PM

        foreal, I wish I had a stoner shirt/jersey, thats a keeper.

  8. pj608 - Jul 3, 2014 at 4:22 PM

    No one remaining deserves to be re-signed or even signed all together with the exception of Daniel Alredsson. I dont think he will play anywhere else but Detroit because i am sure if he wanted to play else where and move again he would of gotten plenty of offers from other teams. Look for him to Re-sign for Detroit or ride into the sunlight.
