Welcome to all as we embark on another summer offseason of free agent signings and just perhaps, another trade or two to keep the fan base talking until September. With the Florida Panthers seemingly set on defense, new general manager Tom Rowe is looking for a wing or two (or three) to fill out his club's bottom six. Nick Bjugstad and Derek MacKenzie are feeling a little lonely right now...

If you've been with us for any of our past seven "UFA Day" threads you'll be familiar with the surroundings: post up your own thoughts, reactions, any rumors that catch your eye (please source them), favorite lunch spot, what have you. Whether it's about the NHL in general or the Cats in particular, feel free to share it.

The frenzy begins at 12 noon ET, so keep your eyes glued to the interweb so you don't miss anything.
