In his analysis of NHL free agents to avoid this offseason, Adam Gretz highlights several players who may not be worth their expected price tags:

Patrick Kane: Despite his name recognition and offensive capabilities, Kane's defensive shortcomings and recent hip surgery raise concerns about his long-term performance and value.
Jonathan Marchessault: While he had an impressive goal-scoring season, Marchessault might have peaked already at 34 and could command a salary that doesn't align with future production.
Nikita Zadorov: Gretz warns against overvaluing Zadorov based on his physicality and recent postseason form, cautioning that his on-ice contributions may not justify a high salary.
Anthony Mantha: Although Mantha had a strong season, Gretz questions the sustainability of his high shooting percentage, suggesting a potential regression in goal-scoring output.
Sean Monahan: Like Mantha, Monahan saw a spike in goal production and shooting percentage in the 2023-24 season. Still, his inconsistent performance in previous seasons raises doubts about future consistency.
Gretz advises teams to consider the potential risks of signing these players to long-term, expensive contracts, emphasizing the importance of value and sustainability in roster decisions during free agency.
