Devils: need a successor to Brodeur
Islanders: Nabokov is only a 1 or 2 year solution
Toronto: I don't think that Reimer or Gustavsson are safe
Florida: They have Markstrom, but is He ready yet? Are They sold with Theodore or Clemmensen?
Tampa: needs a true #1
Winnipeg: Are They sold on Pavelec?
Washington: Holtby is most likely the #1 going into next year, but what about Vokoun & Neuvirth?

Chicago: Between Crawford, Emery & Salak, is there a #1 Goalie in that mix?
Columbus: The whole team is a mess, why shouldn't the Goaltending be any different.
Colorado: Is Giggy a stop gap? Is Varlamov a true #1?
Edmonton: Is Khabibulin still a #1? Is Dubnyk ready to take the next step?
San Jose: Does San Jose trust Niemi? Can Greiss step in?

Am I correct in any of these &/or did I leave some teams out? Who do You think ends up where?
Florida's Coach was saying goaltending is an area of strength for them the only move they might make is letting Clemenson walk
Yes they are sold on Pavelec but will need a backup; Mason isn't happy
Unless Neuvirth gets a good sized return they should keep him over Vokoun
Varly is a #1
Dubnyk seems like he can handle starter or at the very least split the job
SJ needs to fix forwards before they worry about goaltending

Good job on the rest though
