The usual July 1 opening of NHL free agency has turned to Oct. 9 due to the delay caused by the coronavirus pandemic.

Eleven days after the Tampa Bay Lightning won the Stanley Cup in the Edmonton, Alberta, bubble and two days after the conclusion of the NHL draft, general managers are hard at work again at improving their teams.

This offseason’s crop of free agents is a top-heavy one, including a No. 1 defenseman and several front-line wingers, mixed in with puck-moving defenseman and the standard depth forwards and defenseman. The major difference this year, though, is the number of goalies available. It will also be interesting to see how the pandemic affects prices given to these top free agents, with teams facing financial hardships and the ETA on next season’s start and fans in the stands being unclear.

Here’s a look at the list:

1. Alex Pietrangelo, defenseman, St. Louis Blues: The only negative with signing Pietrangelo is that he is 31, meaning his best seasons are likely in the past and the contract might not age well. Other than that, Pietrangelo fills all of the boxes: He’s been the captain of a Stanley Cup winner and he’s a right-shot defenseman with size and plays in all situations. He had 16 goals and 52 points last season. Where he went: Vegas Golden Knights, seven years, $61.6 million.
