Re: NHL 2013
Free agency is underway, the big moves so far:
Claude Giroux and the Flyers have finalized an eight-year contract that will pay Giroux a total of $66.2 million.
The Detroit Red Wings have signed Daniel Alfredsson to a one-year/$5.5 million contract including bonuses.
Edmonton Oilers have signed Andrew Ference to a four-year/$13 million contract.
Mike Ribeiro has agreed to terms with the Phoenix Coyotes.
"Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."
