The NHL’s best rarely make it to free agency. Teams tend to re-sign their top players, keeping them off the market and on their rosters. That leaves a slew of solid veterans and journeymen available to the highest bidders trying to find a forward to play on a second or third line, a defenseman to be in a second pairing or perhaps a backup goaltender.(AP Photo/Julio Cortez, File)

FILE - In this April 7, 2018, file photo, New York Islanders center John Tavares (91) carries the puck against the Detroit Red Wings during the first period of an NHL hockey game in Detroit. As the No. 1 pending free agent, Tavares not only gets to hand out his rose like hockey’s version of “The Bachelor” but can set the tone for the rest of the players available. He can only get an eight-year contract from the Islanders--unless they execute a sign-and-trade to recoup some value--and could very well become the league’s second-highest-paid player behind Edmonton Oilers captain Connor McDavid, who makes an average of $12.5 million a season.
