I figure Rask will be on the roster next season and cost 3.2 million, the B's resign Krejci and Kessel, and sign a veteran goalie to split time with Rask.
Hnidy probably won't be back and Montador is essentially having a "tryout" for the rest of the season and playoffs.
Hunwick and Bitz are both RFA and will probably get raises.
This does sound like a good idea but the key thing to remember is to get that Vet. goalie to help out Rask. Dont make the same mistakes like the Habs did and throw Price in there without that vet to lean on and learn from. We are seeing now what can happen when thats the case. Price will still be great (just as i think Rask will to), but give him the time to learn. If Rask really starts to shine when he is 25-27, you should be very happy with the progress he has taken. I still wish the habs had signed that vet goalie (not denis), but what can you do
