3 Potential Free-Agent Destinations for Mark Giordano

Mark Giordano is still looking for his new home over a week into free agency. The veteran defenseman's plan is to continue his career rather than retire. As a result of this, let's discuss three teams who could consider bringing him in now.

New York Rangers: The New York Rangers could consider taking a shot on Giordano. When looking at their left side, it is clear that Giordano could compete for a spot on their bottom pairing if signed. In addition, he would give them another veteran with great leadership qualities, which would certainly be good for a contender like the Rangers. 

Florida Panthers: The Florida Panthers could use more defensive depth, as they lost multiple defenders this offseason. Due to this, they could consider bringing in Giordano on a one-year deal. He would give them another option for their bottom pairing. In addition, he likely wouldn't be against playing there, as they are the reigning Stanley Cup champs, and he has yet to win one. 

Carolina Hurricanes: The Carolina Hurricanes are another club that lost several defensemen this offseason. Due to this, it would not hurt for them to add a bit more depth to their blueline before the start of the season. Giordano would give them that and could serve well as a seventh defenseman for the Metropolitan Division club.
