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?
Burke has stated he WILL address the goaltending in the offseason. Gus is UFA and probably won't be signed here. Not sure if Burke is looking for a short term stop gap (Thomas, Kipper or even Habby via trade or Vokoun, Harding via FA) or looking to go big with a Luongo type trade (i hope not if the cost is high). It will be interesting to say the least as there seems to be more than a few teams who are looking for help in net.
