Top 300 AHL Free Agents 7/3

Friend of the blog Jonathan Bombulie of The (Wilkes-Barre, Pa.) Citizens' Voice and I have spent the past few weeks compiling a list of the Top 300 available American Hockey League free agents. With the free agency period set to begin Friday, this is as good a time as any to publish the final product. 

Most fans, I figured, probably aren't going to want to look through all 300 of them. So the first 50 are in the table below, then numbers 51-300 are after the jump. There's a best of the rest listed there too.

This is the fourth draft of the big board. We've removed a lot of players from the original drafts who have signed elsewhere, but we might have missed a couple announcements. If you see someone here who has already signed somewhere or is not a free agent, please alert me in the comment section.

You could also Tweet me your comments and corrections @MCSaratogian. And be sure to follow Jonathan at @CVBombulie. He's the absolute authority on the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins.

I plan to keep this updated all summer, so I'll be removing people as they sign with teams. A handful of the listed players signed with teams this afternoon, so this is now actually a list of only 293 or so.

(You have to scroll down a bit. The advertisement on the right screwed up the formatting).
