The long and winding road for our season-long contest is coming to an end. The Drive for Draisaitl has been a lot of fun this season, and we are soon looking at gearing up for 2019-20.

This will be the final leg in the contest. Things are looking pretty good for cjs-sportscards but you just never know what can happen.

The initial frenzy around free agency has subsided, with the big signings and even an offer sheet!

Your task in this final challenge is to predict what will happen with the best of the rest, those unsigned players who still haven't found a forever home for the upcoming season. What follows is a list of 10 restricted and unrestricted free agents, and it is your job to predict a) where they will sign; b) the term of the deal; and c) the AAV of the deal.

Here is your list:

1. Mitch Marner (RFA - Toronto)
2. Jake Gardiner (UFA)
3. Patrik Laine (RFA - Winnipeg)
4. Ben Hutton (UFA)
5. Derick Brassard (UFA)
6. Dion Phaneuf (UFA)
7. Brayden Point (RFA - Tampa Bay)
8. Mikko Rantanen (RFA - Colorado)
9. Brock Boeser (RFA- Vancouver)
10. Michal Neuvirth (UFA)

As a bonus, will any of the RFA players sign an offer sheet with another team? If you think so, indicate who and which team. You'll receive an additional full point if that player signs an offer sheet. The catch? If you're wrong you don't get any points for that player even if you get the term & AAV correct.

Additionally, select two other RFA or UFA and predict their future contract.

In order to ensure this contest leg doesn't run indefinitely, the deadline for signings will be August 15th. Anyone unsigned at that time will be marked as null.

You'll receive a half-point for each correct feature of a player's signing details (team, term, AAV).

Deadline to enter is Saturday, July 13th at 12pm PDT. Any players who have signed prior to your submission will not be counted.

Good luck!

We've got 24 hours until the signing deadline and wouldn't you know it, not one guy on the list of 10 has signed!
cjs-sportscards will get 1 point for predicting Donato's re-signing in Minnesota for two years.
