from Tony Gallagher of the Vancouver Province,
It is safe to say there are goaltending concerns in Philadelphia, Florida, Edmonton, Washington, Buffalo, St. Louis, Tampa Bay, Calgary, Minnesota and the Islanders — a team whose goalie problems my colleague Jason Botchford wrote about last week in The Province.
You would think, at some point, there have to be takers, given the importance of the position. But then, Luongo’s contract represents a lot of money — and there are always other options.
Here are snapshots of the nine teams mentioned above:
The Philadelphia Flyers always have issues and they might think they have solved them with Steve Mason, who certainly finished up with solid numbers after coming over from Columbus and being re-signed to an extension. So Mason’s likely their man but if that isn’t high-risk, it’s hard to tell what might be.
