Day 1 NHL UFA Price per Win

I have twenty-three players changing teams today picking up contracts totaling $46.15M in AAV in 2010-11:


# Players Total 2010-11 AAV Projected Wins $/Win
23 $46.15M 17.4 $2.65M


Using Tom Awad's Vukota projections, these players look to be worth 17.4 wins next season.  Subtracting minimum salary gives us an average price per win of $2.65M.  This is a 20% increase over last season's overall UFA price of $2.23M - but that figure includes players who re-signed with their old teams, and players who signed well after July 1.  The ultimate cost of a win this year will no doubt be somewhat lower than $2.65M.
