When free agency opens up tomorrow, one name that may fly under the radar is P.A. Parenteau. He quietly had a very good season on the worst team in the league. He finished 2015-16 with 20 goals and 21 assists, his best point total since he had 43 in forty-eight games for Colorado in 2012-13.

He largely played a third/fourth line role for the team this season. However, Hynes added Josefson to the team’s power play and
Ray Shero will have the green light to spend money this summer and with it, plenty of cash to do so…but will he? His first order of business will most likely be to lock up his own assets. As previously discussed here, Kyle Palmieri is an RFA due for a big raise and Shero will
