Last contract? They're both free agents at the end of the year. Dallas just acquired Lehtonen to be their goalie of the future and they're likely to move Turco before the deadline.

Washington will hang on to Theodore because you can't have too many goalies when you're making a cup run, but between Neuvirth and Varlamov, there won't be any room to re-sign him in July 1.

Theodore is 33 and Turco is 34. I'm not sure what "they're on their last contract" means, exactly. They aren't under contract after this season, which is a perfect situation to help us continue to ease Pavelec's transition. We sign them for a couple years and then we're done with them.

I'd like to go after a Carey Price in the offseason, but I guess we need to decide if Pavelec is our "goalie of the future" before we do that.
