Free Agent Frenzy Day 1 has just about come to an end and this evening saw a few more big names taken off the list of available players.
Mark Streit to the Islanders: 5-years, $20.5 million
Michael Ryder to Boston: 3-years, $12 million
Wade Redden to the NY Rangers: 6-years, $39 million
Bobby Holik to New Jersey: 1-year, $2.5 million
Niklas Hagman to Toronto: 4-years, $12 million
We're seeing a pattern here of teams overpaying for second-tier players. It's quite astounding.
