With a limited demand for goalies, what will happen is the top tier goalies with multiple offers will resolve first, and hopefully a trickle down effect occurs and other goalies pick up interest. Minor league netminders will sign quicker.

Remember, SEND IN OFFFERS! NOT "What's so and so looking for?"
Also, give a BRIEF reasoning for why the player should sign with you.
Open the Floodgates...
The Ottawa Senators have signed Brad Thiessen to a two-way, 1 year $550,000 ($100,000 AHL) deal. Brad will share time with Robin down in Binghamton next season.
Sign Jordon Leopold to a 2 year, 5.25M dollar contract. The perfect situation for Jordon, he will mentor our young gun Chris Tanev, allowing him to slot back into his natural left-side position. We believe Jordon has great versatility and will end up beside all of our blueliners by the end of the season.
Looks pretty solid to me!
:edmonton ROBYN REGEHR COMES HOME TO ALBERTA... AS AN OILER!
The Edmonton Oilers have signed bruising defenseman Robyn Regehr to a 4-year pact worth $14,300,00 including a NTC. Regehr made a name for himself plastering Oilers throughout his career in Calgary till he was traded out east.
"We had heard whispers that Robyn and his family we're longing to come back to Alberta. The whispers only got louder as Free Agency approached. We've been looking to become a harder team to play against and we have many Oilers here that'll tell you, Robyn makes it difficult out there on the ice. We look forward to the Battle of Alberta this year with some renewed exuberance."
The contract breaks down as such:
Year 1 - $5,500,000
Year 2 - $4,400,000
Year 3 - $2,600,000
Year 4 - $1,800,000
The :sharks solidified their D corps today by adding Marek Zidlicky on a 2 year deal worth 3mil (1.5 AAV). Marek replaces Douglas Murray, who left via free agency.
:sabres have signed defenceman Marc-Andre Bergeron to a 1 year deal worth 1.3 million.
Avalanche have signed UFA defensemen Kimmo Timonen to a two year deal worth 5.5/year with a NMC.
:blues solidify our too 4 by signing Ian White
3 years $3.9 mil per, NTC.
Islanders have re-signed goaltender Evgeni Nabokov to a 1 year deal worth $2.25M
The Ottawa Senators have brought back a familiar face, inking free agent forward Matt Cullen to a two year deal that will pay him $2.5M/season. The deal also includes a no-trade clause.
"We are very happy to have Matt back in Ottawa. We believe we made a mistake last time in letting him go to free agency after we acquired him at the trade deadline. Matt will help fill the leadership void up front left by the retirement of captain Daniel Alfredsson."
Back On Long Island
Just months after being traded, defenseman Mark Streit has signed with the New York Islanders. The smooth skating defenseman signed a 3 year $16.2M contract worth $5.4M annually.
More to come...

Wholesale Changes; Leafs bring back Lupul, add Zajac, Morrow, Murray, Visnovsky, Backstrom
http://t0.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:A...T8-2XWBPGJphRQ http://t3.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:A...6nbwZIuKD_JtTwhttp://t2.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:A...yQXif5GivTG7Gi http://cache.boston.com/multimedia/s...809bs/bs22.jpg http://thecheckingline.com/sites/the...1c84683294.jpg http://ingoal.ingoalmagazine.netdna-...backstrom1.jpg
The Toronto Maple Leafs are ready to be contenders, as soon as the 2013-2014 season is ready to begin.
The club announced today the signing of six pieces, including five new players, to address several burning holes in their lineup, including their long coveted number one centre and starting goaltender.
The Leafs announced they have signed former Wild goaltender Niklas Backstrom to a two year, 9.2M$ contract worth 4.6M$ each season.
"We see Nik as an extremely talented goalie who has run on hard times the past two season. With a guy like James Reimer in a 1b situation, Nik will get 20-25 games off per season to rest, and maintain himself in peak form for our return to the playoffs."
Next, the Leafs added a pair of defencemen to their roster, signing rugged stay-at-home defenceman Douglas Murray to a 3 year, 9M$ contract paying him 3M$ per season. To go along with the toughness, the Leafs added offensive defenceman Lubomir Visnovsky to a two year, 9M$ contract paying him 4.5M$ per season.
"After trading Dion Phaneuf and losing Robyn Regehr to free agency, we felt we needed to get some veteran help on defence to give our young guys a mentor, as well as our rookies some time to develop in the AHL. This will give guys like Morgan Rielly and Jesse Blacker the time they need to learn the pro-game, without being rushed in as we've seen other defencemen in the past come through our system. Doug is a sturdy, rough and tumble defenceman who will add grit to our lineup, while Lubomir has been a strong offensive presence in this league for a long time and will shore up our power play after losing Dion."
To the forward corps, the Leafs brought back a familiar face in Joffrey Lupul to play on the top line left wing, signing him to a 6 year, 34.5M$ contract which will pay him 5.75M$ per season while also giving him a limited No Trade Clause. Also, the Leafs added former Devils centreman Travis Zajac to a 7 year, 40.25M$ contract paying him 5.75M$ as well with a limited No Trade Clause. Lastly but not leastly, the Leafs added leadership, grit and scoring ability in left winger Brendan Morrow, signing him to a 3 year, 10.8M$ contract paying him 3.6M$ per season.
"In Joffrey, we bring back a kid who had great chemistry with Phil Kessel, and a guy who has rejuvenated his career. He loves playing in Toronto, and his strong performance has earned him this contract. Travis Zajac is a legit number one centreman in this league, and we have no addressed a key component that has been missing on our club. We are very happy to bring in a player of this calibre to address a long standing need. Brendan Morrow will slot into our 3rd line on left wing, and will mentor a player like Matt Frattin who we see such similarities in between the two. He will get play on special teams, but will be able to produce much more in this role in our view."
"With these changes, there is no doubt we're ready to contend for a championship in our minds."
