The Goalie Shuffle

Filed under: General NHL, Sabres, Senators, Maple Leafs, Lightning, Capitals, Blackhawks, Wings, Avalanche, NHL Free AgencyThere are a lot of big names still on the board through the early stages of free agency today. The one position that there’s been no shortage of movement at? Goalie. Goalies are changing teams left and right today and the effects of some of the moves are going to be pretty wide-ranging. Let’s take a look at some of the moves that have taken place and what they might mean. All of the exhaustive contract details are via TSN.

It’s a two-year, $9 million deal and Eric’s got the details below. Theodore did seem to regain some of his form this past year with the Avalanche, but he melted down in the playoffs against the Red Wings while suffering from a bad case of the flu. He’ll probably give the Caps an upgrade over what Olie the Goalie was giving them earlier in the year, but he won’t carry them the way Huet did down the stretch last year. And $4.5 million seems like a lot of money for a guy that just might be washed up, doesn’t it?

With a ton of moneyalready tied up in Nikolai Khabibulin (~$7 million a year), the ‘Hawks are now paying Huet $5.635 a year as well. Huet’s an upgrade over what the Blackhawks have, for sure, but I’m trying to wrap my mind around paying more than $12 million a year for their top two goalies.

More goalie moves after the jump.Continue Reading
