Agreed. That's how teams did it in the old days and it's become a necessity in these salary cap days. Teams spending the the most isn't even working in baseball anymore.

If Ray Emery departs, there is not much available with regard to unrestricted free agent goaltenders.

And so Raanta would likely be brought up to fill the backup role, no?

Raanta, while saying all the right things, didn't come over and wasn't brought over to play in the AHL. Not all Euro goalies need seasoning on NA ice, see Fasth of ANA last season.

You have to remember, Emery was brought back last season because the Hawks didn't have 100 percent confidence in Crawford. This is not an issue now.

I'm sure Raanta is fine playing in the AHL to start... what I'm sure too is that Raanta does not want to play the whole season in the AHL.

It would not surprise me if the Chicago Blackhawks signed a proven NHL backup goalie on an one year contract.

How would it be? They are kind of completely different situations.

@TSNBobMcKenzie: Ray Emery in PHI; Nathan Horton in CBJ; Ryane Clowe in NJ. But lots of intrigue, shouldn't be long after 12 noon that signings get done.

If they can unload Car Bomb, that will give them more than $2 million to maybe sign a better center?

Khudobin signed with Carolina.

The Boston Bruins have taken a beating this off-season.

Think they'll have to waive Bollig or replace Brookbank with Stanton for some breathing room. 48k is pennies with short term injuries.

Can anyone explain to me what the qualifying offer thing for Kruger means? I know he hasn't signed but I have no idea what that means for the process.

We hold his rights. If anybody signs him we can match the contract and keep him or receive compensation in draft picks.

This is true. But can they afford to waive Bollig? They need someone to kick some ass if other teams take liberties, right?

Maybe trade Car Bomb?
