Lalime is 100% healthy and is on a one-way contract. He is Khabibulin's backup. Mike Brodeur is still having some back issues, hence the Caron signing. Caron is on a two-way deal, so the Hawks have the option of bringing him up of course. But that's not why he was signed. Someone asked about all the goalies earlier... 2 in the pros, 2 in the minors, 2 in college and 1 recovering... makes sense to me.
this seems pretty weird. So this means if Lalime is suckin bad as Khabi's backup, they cant drop him to the minors and bring up Caron? Should've signed Lalime to a two-way, I dont think he's that good IMO.
