2012 NHL Free Agency: Winners & Losers in the Central Division

New, comments

The latest OTF on YouTube (you are a subscriber, aren't you?) takes a look around the division...


So what do you think about how the various teams in the Central have done this summer?

St. Louis: Have re-signed most of their free agents, preparing for 1st full season under Ken Hitchcock.

Nashville: Re-signed Weber, Gill & Gaustad, but lost Suter & Tootoo (not to mention AK46 & Radulov).

Detroit: Lidstrom retired, Stuart & Hudler left as free agents, Tootoo & Samuelsson signed.

Chicago: Added Sheldon Brookbank as depth D, but haven't addressed major issues.

Columbus: Traded Rick Nash for two roster players and a young D, signed Adrian Aucoin from Phoenix.

Taken in total, I wonder if the division as a whole might take a bit of a dip next season?
