If Harding can't play there will be plenty of good and cost-effective options for backup goalies the next couple years.
They have no 1sts for the next couple years. Those went in the Pominville trade. i don't think they could afford to give up their seconds like Toronto did. their minor league prospects are only so so. Way over valued. There is really no other possible goalie for them so they were kind of screwed. Now we can all hear how Vanek is going there for whatever reason after next year. People here think players just want to play in MN for whatever reason. I guess it is because they always have longer summers than the Hawks and Bruins....etc.
