Last week I looked at a lineup of the best free agent signings of the summer of 2013.  Now, it is time to take a look at the worst signings at each position.  This list includes only the players who switched teams as a free agent, and not ones that were re-signed by their own teams post July-5th.

Admittedly, just like it was tough coming up with the “best” signings for goalies and defense, it was also tough to come up with a “worst” set.  There simply wasn’t much movement because teams tend to lock up their back ends and not let them reach UFA status.

The forwards were pretty easy, and fairly obvious.
