NHL Free Agency Props

Though the names up for auction may not be the biggest we’ve ever seen, NHL free agency is always a frenzy and with the added dynamic of a brand-new team in the mix, this year’s edition should not disappoint.

Online sportsbook Bovada has prepared for the July 1 festivities by showering hockey bettors with a long list of propositions which I’ve curated and carefully selected my favorite wagers off of.

What team will Sign Alexander Radulov?

Doing more than enough on his one-year “show me” deal to prove he belongs back in the NHL, Alex Radulov is about to get paid but the question is, by who?  The skilled Russian forward is reportedly in the market for a deal worth upwards of $40 million and with the interest he’s generating around the league, that’s not out of the realm of possibility.

Rad Dad was one of the only bright spots for an abhorrent Habs offense last season, accumulating 54 points in 76 games, and GM Marc Bergevin really wants him back in a Canadiens sweater. The problem is that about a third of the league has already reached out to Radulov and in a situation where it seems money is speaking louder than words, I see no reason why he’d feel any loyalty to Montreal.

That being the case, I’m a huge fan of the line for Radulov to be signed by any other team that’s being offered at EVEN.

NHL Free Agency: What Team will Alexander Radulov sign his contract with?

Odds as of June 28 at Bovada

  • Montreal Canadiens -140
  • Any Other Team EVEN

What Team will Sign Ryan Miller?

Not quite the same goalie he was for the Buffalo Sabres, the 37-year-old Ryan Miller can still be an effective backup and it appears as if the race for his services is now down to his current team, the Vancouver Canucks, and one suitor, the Anaheim Ducks.

What those two teams have in common is that they’re both in the Pacific Division and the option for Miller to be signed by a team within that division has an attractive price of -145 attached to it.

With Miller wanting to move closer to his Hollywood actress wife, it’s looking more and more likely that he winds up in Anaheim and I think this bet is as close to a lock as you’ll find.

Odds as of June 28 at Bovada

  • Pacific Division Team -145

Will Joe Thornton Sign with an Original 6 Team?

Jumbo Joe will be an unrestricted free agent come July 1 and there’s a long list of clubs that are clamoring for a player of his caliber. Thornton is still one of the best puck distributors in the NHL and there’s been some speculation that he could be enticed to join a team like the Maple Leafs or Canadiens as both are in serious need of center depth.

Thornton has been vocal about his love for the West Coast so the likelihood that he’s pried away from California could be better. That said, Los Angeles, the team other than the Sharks that’s been pursuing him most aggressively, is tight on cap space and if he’s offered a bundle to come up north, he just might do it.
