Martin St. Louis and Justin Williams headline a weak free agent forward class this year. 

First off, congratulations to the Chicago Blackhawks for winning the Stanley Cup this week. It was a great season for the Hawks and I will be the first to admit, at the start of the playoffs, I didn't have them even coming close to winning it. Coach Quenneville road his horses to the end, pretty much playing four defensemen until they dropped, and they kept on rolling.  It worked and in the end, that's all that really matters.

Last week, I took a look at some possible landing spots for some pending UFA defensemen. I received some interesting feedback, both in the comments section and also via PM's as to my possible destinations for those I chose to focus on. In this week's Capped, I am going to take a look at some of the pending UFA Forwards and do the same thing as last week.

In doing some research for this week's column, the big thing that jumped out at me was just how poor the list of FA forwards really is this summer. There really are no big names to battle over so it wasn't quite as easy working on this week's list. Either way, here are a few of the forwards and where I think they might go, and how much money they may make.
