Playoffs are no big deal,
don't have a crap attack.


Toronto is technically looking for goaltending, but who knows what is actually happening with that. Andersen was too inconsistent last year, and while I think he could rebound, he's also a pending UFA after the season and the Leafs cannot give him a raise.

I would add Buffalo and maybe Arizona since they seem set on dealing Raanta or Kuemper

I think Buffalo would be okay with Ullmark/Hutton, but they could definitely improve on Hutton.

Arizona should probably be under "Who loving Knows" because, well, who loving knows what's going on with that team right now.

Andersen's not going anywhere for now and I think Campbell is a decent enough backup but you're right, they're going to have to do something for 2021-2022

Teams actually looking for goaltending (as far as I can tell):

Maybe:
Florida - Bobrovsky was bad last year and Driedger is unproven, though the latter had good numbers in a very small sample size.
St. Louis - Binnington got badly exposed during the playoffs and Husso is totally untested.
Anaheim - Gibson is their guy, but should look for a good backup given that Miller is 40. Miller had a good season last year, but you can't really keep kicking that can down the road.

Who loving knows:
Boston - Is Rask's heart really in to playing? He's got a young family and the world's currently on fire. Hockey may be the last thing he cares about right now.
Colorado - Rumblings that they're looking for a goaltender even though Grubauer and Francouz have been good.

Leafs are somewhere between maybe and who knows. They arenít looking at adding another goalie, but they might be looking at hopping on the carousel and swapping Freddie for someone if someone they like is available at the right price.

Yeah, I think it's probable that the Leafs are keeping Andersen, but it may be useful to at least explore options this offseason when you don't need to do something, rather than next, when you absolutely have to.

I can't see him making the Hall, but I can see the Canes retiring his number and the Kings maybe honouring it.

He had some amazing playoff runs, but I feel like Briere is similar, and I think Briere has a better chance. Not that I think he makes it, either.

Still, like you said, hell of a career.

Significant overpayment for Gudbranson.

To be fair, a bent paperclip would be a significant overpayment for Gudbranson.

Gudbranson has a cap hit of $4 million with actual salary of $3 million so it is pretty much the most Ottawa thing possible. Matt Murray has to be really excited to be reunited with him.

Iím good. Even on a cheap contract why the gently caress does a hockey team need Martin in the year 2021?? He wonít crack 10 points. The Rangers have Trouba, Lindgren, Smith and Lemiuex if you need someone to throw a punch. Would be an absolute waste of a roster spot.

Did they not learn their lesson from Haleyís great NYR stint of 22 games with 1 solitary point and multiple stupid penalties? I know the answer but still.

Excuse me but I think you'll find that Matt Martin had 5 playoff goals this season and consider also the success of Matt Murray, another Matt <firstname> with a distinguished playoff career. But if it makes you feel better, some other rando on twitter says it's nonsense:
