I was thinking of getting a younger goalie like Josh Harding. Personally, I wouldn't mind if Lundqvist played another 4-5 games fewer over the course of the season. It would keep him fresh for the playoffs. With a younger, competent goalie like Harding, that could happen.
Harding,interesting but what would he cost? Im sure plenty of other teams will be interested in team as well.
What other goalies are out there and available?
id love Scott Clemmenson backing up Henke.
For me,Birons downfall made him a no signing..sorry but once i get that feeling if your in net we are loing,thats it,no turning back man for me.He is getting older..
Im not one to quit on someone,but yeah maybe make a move for a younger backup. I do like Biron,think hes a great locker room guy,but im not coonfident woith him in net,at all.
