Attention, blue line shoppers...

After a lackluster Day One of the free agency period, things have started heating up today. The Chicago Blackhawks made a fine pickup by signing Adrian Aucoin to a four-year contract, and the Columbus Blue Jackets made an even bigger splash by landing Adam Foote with a three-year deal. Both are solid top-line defensemen, but Foote has the added leadership experience with two Stanley Cup rings from Colorado. This is also a huge loss for the Avalanche, for whom Foote provided physical toughness that is otherwise lacking within that lineup.

Check back later today, as the Flyers have called a press conference to announce "several signings". What, are they bringing in the Hansen Brothers? I don't know how tin foil expenses count against the salary cap...
