The missing UFAs

I couldn't quite put my finger on what was wrong with TSN.ca's list of unrestricted free agents until today, when the likes of Andy Hilbert (and friends) started signing deals.

Hilbert wasn't on the list, and neither was Darren Haydar. Just who else was missing?

Take the Washington Capitals, for instance. TSN has the Capitals with just two UFAs, Jeff Halpern and Ivan Majevsky, but the team actually has 16 UFAs in total. In fact, the full UFA list is, stunningly, upwards of 400 players.

So, think of TSN's list as a 'notables' runthrough. If you want to know everyone up for grabs this year, see my master list below. There are some good players here who'll be playing in the NHL next year (Erik Westrum, for instance, isn't on the TSN list even though he led the AHL in scoring last year):
