Why not trade a third for Hedberg, then when Clemmenson comes back you trade Hedberg back to NJ for your third?
Hedberg is a free agent now. I imagine there are better options than Hedberg, unless your main goal was to have a veteran mentor in the locker room.
Plus it seems like Clemmensen should be ready to go again around Opening Night.
Clemmensen underwent arthroscopic surgery on his knee, Panthers GM Dale Tallon said on Sunday. While the surgery will only keep him out for three weeks, that cuts into training camp time and pushes his timeframe for a return right around opening night. That's not ideal to say the least, no matter how comfortable they might be with Markstrom.
They might just want somebody on a PTO to play some of the preseason games.
Florida would have been set in net for the next 6+ years if they would have picked up Luongo. Now they are looking? lmao. Good luck with that!
No. The Panthers would have had the same problem with Markstrom and Lu that the Canucks had with Lu and Schneider. And, the thing I hate the most, they would have had to give up one or two top prospects and a top draft pick to get Luongo. Screw that.
Honestly, Florida-DiPietro would not be terrible(r) together. Especially considering sounds more like he just wants a veteran goalie for PTO for training camp.
Give DiPi some time on the ice in camp. No further obligations.
