The main thing is we got rid of Hendricks's contract, which was really bad for us.
I could absolutely see Dubnyk getting re-signed here this offseason. We only drafted Maz two years ago, and the AHL could do him some good. Rinne will (I assume) be back next year, but with Hutton most likely gone, who is our backup? Dubnyk won't be in any position to demand a big deal, but if he looks like an ok backup for us, bring him back for, say, 2 years @ 1mil per to play behind Rinne. Maz and Hellberg battle it out in Milwaukee for starts and once they are ready, in about two years, they supplant Dubnyk.
