Phoneix : Burke, Boucher, Bierk
San Jose : Nabokov, Kiprusoff, Toskala
Also if Pittsburgh can sign Marc-Andre Fleury, then that would mean Caron or Aubin could hit the market as well.
The odd man out in all of these teams would be required to clear waivers in order to be sent to the minors.
And then there's also Cujo.....
From the sound of it, it looks like there's more than 60 goalies on one-way contracts in the NHL right now, plus the odd goalie that teams are going to keep up despite a two-way deal (i.e. MA Fleury). I guess we'll start seeing some goalies either being bought out, or be getting NHL contracts while playing in the AHL.
After all the shuffling around takes place, what goalies does everyone see getting demoted across the league. McLennan has already been mentioned. Who are the other likely candidates?
