Top 25 2015 NHL Free Agents

Top 25 2015 NHL Free Agents

SHARE

You may not agree with our rankings, but here is our initial 2015 Top 25 NHL free agent list.

In creating this list we took into consideration factors such as players age, position, injury history, likelihood of signing with another team, etc.

Also factoring into the rankings is how a player may be in 3-4+ years, and not just in 1 or 2 years. Players like Martin St. Louis and Jaromir Jagr fall down the list a bit because of this. Most free agent deals for the top players are longer than 2 years, hence why we rank this way.
