I don't know about you, but I found it a little rude the Canucks re-signed Kevin Bieksa so far in advance of July 1. I mean sure, the Islanders were never going to sign him (in fact, nobody was). But even the sober realists among us know that part of the way you pass hockey's summertime is by playing NHL '12 in your head. But noooo, Vancouver had to go and remove one of the few interesting names on a pretty pathetic UFA market, several days in advance.

It's the kind of disappointment that makes a man want to riot.

There's plenty more going on though, from more Phoenix angst to RFA signings that even involve the Islanders -- plus an interesting list of non-tendered RFAs.

Finally, free agency: Here's a good list of who was qualified and who wasn't qualified RFA offers (Rob Schremp Hockey, Anthony Stewart, Tyler Kennedy among them).
