Dallas gave 40-year-old winger Ray Whitney $9 million over two years
Defenceman Bryan Allen signed a three-year, $10.5-million contract with the Anaheim Ducks.
The Canucks attempted to bring back former grit winger Tanner Glass in an effort of their own to upgrade their bottom six, but fell short when he signed a two-year deal with Pittsburgh worth an average of $1.1 million per season.
The Toronto Maple Leafs added checking-line forward Jay McClement on a two-year deal worth $3 million.
The Colorado Avalanche landed one of the bigger names on the market, forward P.A. Parenteau. The 29-year-old got a four-year contract for $16 million after 18 goals and 49 assists last season with the New York Islanders.
The Dallas Stars signed former Canucks defenceman Aaron Rome to a three-year contract.
The Canucks didn't want to give Sami Salo a two-year deal so the injury-prone defenceman went to Tampa Bay for $3.75 million per year.
Mikael Samuelsson enjoyed the most successful seasons of his career with Vancouver, recording back-to-back 50-point campaigns in 2009&#8211;10 and 2010&#8211;11. Then he went to the Panthers for his second stint in Florida. Now he's landed in Detroit for the second time.
