There are still plenty of role players available who are capable of helping teams looking to fill specific voids, though. One positive about waiting until the dust settles following that initial surge is the price tags. Teams are usually forced to overpay in order to acquire the top available free agents due to the high level of interest. Now, general managers can search for good value on short-term deals. So while there aren’t any signings that are going to shift the league’s balance of power, there are still some players who can make an impact. Let’s check out some of the latest rumors concerning a potential second wave of additions. Mike Ribeiro Ribeiro signed with the newly renamed Arizona Coyotes last summer to provide the team with some scoring depth. He did that by chipping in 47 points.

The question for other teams is whether his talent is worth taking a chance on. Based on a report from Craig Morgan of Fox Sports Arizona the answer is seemingly a resounding yes: Hearing that as many as 6 teams have kicked the tires on possibly signing center Mike Ribeiro, recently bought out by the #Coyotes . source: http://bleacherreport.com/articles/2120076-nhl-free-agency-2014-latest-rumors-on-mike-ribeiro-and-more-available-assets
