2014 Free Agency Open Thread

Your open thread for the opening day of NHL free agency which we will keep updated throughout the days proceedings.

Canadiens send three players qualifying offers


The day before free agency has been busy for the Canadiens with rumors of a Josh Gorges trade, Daniel Briere being swapped for P.A. Parenteau and sending out qualifying offers to players. Two of the offers are no surprise with P.K. Subban and Lars Eller both receiving offers. The third player is Joonas Nattinen who spent all of 95 seconds on the ice in the NHL thanks to Therrien's coaching. Nattinen being qualified is strange due to the fact he signed a contract with MODO of the Swedish league recently. Robert Czarnik, Peter Delmas and fan favorite Ryan White were not qualified by the Canadiens.
