Toronto: Voukoun to go with Reimer or acquire Luongo
Florida: if it's not broken don't fix it. Theodore & Clemmensen working. Maybe give Markstrom a full year in the minors or 20-25 games with Theo and move Clemmensen.
Tampa: Kipper, Luongo or Vokoun. Maybe Torkoski (SP) splits 15-20 games?
Winnipeg: Pavelec is the real deal.
Washington: Holtby & Neuvirth as 1A/1B tandem.
Wanna see more of Salak. Injuries and wasn't given enough of a chance. Otherwise could see Kipper
Columbus: draft a goalie. They're miles away from contending (2-3 years). Draft someone like a Subban and bring em up in 2-3 years.
Edmonton: Dubnyk. Bring in a vet like Roloson to help him out even though you still have Khabi on the books.
San Jose: Niemi is the #1 unless they feel otherwise.
EDIT: Could probably throw Harding in the mix to Columbus, NJ, SJ and Tampa. Maybe Washington as well if they want to go in a different direction than Neuvirth. Also some interest in Al Montoya should be there.
He was given a very good chance. He didn't show to be much better than Emery in training camp and he was awful in Rockford. It didn't help matters that he supposedly threw a couple hissyfits while in Rockford.
Salak won't be back in NA next year. He'll very likely head back to Europe.
