Familiar Faces, New Places
JAROME IGINLA, Bruins: The former Calgary captain vetoed a trade to Boston last spring and ended up in Pittsburgh. No hard feelings, though as he signed a one-year, $6 million deal with Boston as a free agent. So how much gas is in the tank at 36? TYLER SEGUIN, Stars: Boston soured on Sequin as his production dropped amid reports of hard partying. Dallas gives him a chance to resurrect his game and reputation, but at a steep price as skilled Loui Eriksson went to the Bruins in the trade. DANIEL ALFREDSSON, Red Wings: Ottawa's captain since 1999, Alfredsson shocked the Canadian capital by signing a one-year, $5.5 million deal with Detroit. Both a desire to win the Stanley Cup (he's 40) and a bargaining impasse prompted the jump. TIM THOMAS, Panthers: The goalie who was instrumental in Boston's 2012 Stanley Cup championship is back after a year in self-exile. His politics may play better in Florida than New England, but will the saves still be there? JAROMIR JAGR, Devils: New Jersey had to do something when Ilya Kovalchuk bailed for Russia after most free agents had found new homes. The Devils decided Jagr, even at 41, was their best option. Jagr split last season between Dallas and Boston. VINCENT LECAVALIER, Flyers: How awkward. Tampa Bay decided to buy out their longtime captain rather than take a $7 million cap hit for the next seven seasons. Philadelphia soothed his feelings with a five-year, $22.5 million contract.
