If you have been following along in NHL free agency today there is has been ongoing trend, the goalie market is fucking bananalands right now. Everytime I check my phone a new goalie just signed a nice new tickets for a new team. King Henrik? Gone to Washington. Braden Holtby? Gone to Vancouver. Cam Talbot? Gone to Minnesota. So lets take a look at some of the goalies who have been moved today, or will be moved today.

  • Vancouver - Braden Holtby - 2yrs/8.6m
  • Washington - Henrik Lundqvist - 1yr/1.5m
  • Ottawa - Matt Murray - 4yrs/25m 
  • Dallas - Anton Khudobin - 3yrs/10m
  • Chicago - Malcolm Subban - 2yrs/1.7m
  • Oilers - Anton Forsberg - 1yr/(money unknown)

And these are just the goalies who have already signed! We are only two hours into this thing. There are still tons of available tendies out there.

  • Jacob Markstrom
  • Thomas Greiss
  • Mike Smith
  • Aaron Dell
  • Corey Crawford
  • Jimmy Howard
  • Cory Schneider

Then there are the goalies on the trade block as well. (via TSN)

  • Marc-Andre Fleury 
  • Frederik Andersen 
  • Joonas Korpiaslo
  • Tuukka Rask (dumb)
  • Jonathan Quick 

The names of 15 goalies were mentioned in this blog. 15!!! The fact 15 different teams could have different goalies next season is mind blowing. I think the madness of the 2020 offseason is just getting started too. The flat cap is putting tons of teams in real shitty cap situations where I actually think there will be more roster movement this offseason than the past 15 years.
