5. The Boston Bruins should consider signing forward Anthony Duclair.

Similar to Athanasiou, Anthony Duclair is one of the youngest players available on the free agent market.

He too has struggled to reach expectations and has remarkably already been a member of five different organizations since breaking into the league in 2014-15.

While Duclair has struggled to meet the expectations many have had, he does have two seasons with 40+ points, including last season for the Ottawa Senators.

Duclair seems to have begun finding his game again in Ottawa, with his points per game up at .62 compared to a .40 average with his other teams.

Duclair is only 25 years old and his cap hit for last season was only $1.67 million, which presents a high ceiling for a moderate to low price and may well be one of the best value signings on the market should he continue to build on his game.
