teams looking for a goalie at the deadline?

What are some teams that could be looking for a goalie at the deadline and who are some other goalies that might be moved?As a Wild fan,I could see DR shipping out Backstrom if the team continues to slide.What kind of return would Backstrom bring being he is a UFA at years end.

PS sorry if the question was posted.

Some Dallas fans have said they want Turco traded, but his value is low and he has a NTC.

If Turco was moved it would have to be in the summer I think when he will lose his NTC because Dallas won’t finish in the Top 10.

Still it seems unlikely to me though.

Who knows. If Detroit ends up trading Filppula at the deadline for a pick/prospect package, they might take a chance on Backstrom if it gets down to the 11th hour and no one else is biting. It looks like Conklin is Detroit's starter as of now, and if that keeps up, I can't see Detroit wanting to go in with Conklin playing starter and Osgood playing like crap.

A lot of factors would have to play into this, but I wouldn't rule Detroit out entirely.

If a team is looking for a goalie at the deadline, they'd have to be in a playoffs' position to start with...

Washington, Philadelphia and Ottawa (if they climb back in the race) are the only teams I can see in the East who could use improvement in net, although Washington has committed good dollars towards Theodore.

In the West, Detroit, Colorado and Los Angeles (if they're still in the race by then) could use some help in goal.

Now which goalies could be made available by then? Khabibulin for sure with most of his salary paid by the deadline, Gerber (although not great), Roloson or Garon from Edmonton, maybe Vokoun if Anderson keeps playing well, rumours that Toskala could be available, or even Pascal Leclaire in Columbus if Mason keeps playing the way he's been?

Backstrom could bring a second in some cases but I would say maybe a 3rd because of the stingy market
