With the dust starting to settle and teams either spent to the limit or waiting to sign their restricted free agents, some prominent UFA's are still waiting for a phone call. The most notable ones I haven't heard much about lately are Brian Leetch and Jason Allison. They are older and slower but should still be able to contribute at a reasonable price.
TSN has the complete list of UFA's, which I believe they keep up to date.

Maybe this will be the year we see the likes of Jim Dowd, Scott Young and Lyle Odelein put out to pasture. Or we see the Jason Woolley types end up like Mike Keane of the Vancouver Canucks, playing babysitter in the minors for the rest of their days, which I personally hate to see. Although alot of these UFA's are reaching the end of their careers, it would be handy to have them come playoff time. Imagine if Buffalo would have had a "Woolley Mammoth" or two when there defense was crumbling this year.

Hey, good point, the Mammoth back to Buffalo! I'm in!!
Funny, I think Lyle Odeleine is the only player left out of all the players that were drafted in the same year he was!
Leetch has a ton to offer at his age.

Leetch is talking with the Rangers and I hope he signs cause I hate the Rangers! He still may be useful on the PP, but he's -300 or something in his career. He's gotten older and the games gotten faster!

Cornelius Odelein should hang it up and go back back to his old job as the Mad magazine poster boy!

Just to clarify.... The pic was supposed to represent "the bottom of the barrel" Zanstorm didn't get it. LMAO

It took it as bottoming out LOL. Either way it gets my vote for the Leafs third jersey logo!

Hey! Leave my Leafs alone buddy!!!
A third jersey for the Leafs would be a Red and White Canada flag! Or a picture of Koivu with his head up Sundin's ass!

That's why it's blue and white..Canada wouldn't have it! I have that picture of Koivu with his head up Sundin's ass! It was taken right before Saku slipped that harmless backhander past Belfour in OT last January.

HAHAHA...good one! Hey don't tell me you collect pictures of stuff like that...sick, man, sick!

Actually I'm working on a Leafs third jersey idea right now. Coming to a Blog near you this

No worries! Wish I had a picture of Pierre Page taking a bite out of Sundin's ass in the 93 playoffs - that would be precious!

HAHA, yeah, Sundin and Sakic were poetry in motion though!

Yeah, for the first two games, anyway. I'll never forget the sight of Page popping his eyesballs out chewing out Sundin behind the bench. A classic moment!
