  • Columbus Blue Jackets Fans React To Free Agency – The Columbus Blue Jackets haven’t made the biggest splash during the free agent period. As GM Jarmo Kekalainen pointed out in an interview yesterday, the team’s biggest acquisition was Scott Hartnell via a trade with Philadelphia. Still, Union and Blue asked Blue Jackets fans to sound off on how they feel the team has done so far. Check out the post from U&B for the responses. [ Union and Blue ]
  • 2014-15 Chicago Blackhawks Potential Line Combinations – It’s early, but Blackhawk Up has a look at potential Chicago Blackhawk’s forward line combinations for the 2014-15 season. Since it is only two day’s after the start of free agency, things are bound to change. However, with the addition of Brad Richards, things could shift around. [ Blackhawk Up ]
  • Boston Bruins Underwhelm In Free Agency – The Causeway Crowd was not happy with the Boston Bruins lack of moves through the first two days of free agency. However, making acquisitions requires cap space, something the Bruins lack right now. According to Capgeek, the Bruins currently have a little over $1.6 million of wiggle room. Considering the Devils paid $5 million per season for the services for Mike Cammelleri, the Bruins don’t exactly have a wide range of options. [ Causeway Crowd ]
