236 posts in this topic

Update:

 

Keith Kinkaid - Albany
Giguere - UFA
Viktor Fasth - 1 year left (trade possibility)
Jhonas Enroth - 1 year left (but there's an overflow of goalies in Buffalo)
Joey MacDonald - UFA (not an exciting choice)
Al Montoya - UFA
Darcy Kuemper - RFA  (but there's an overflow of goalies in Minnesota)

I guess add Jacob Markstrom as a possibility if Vancouver feels like giving us another goalie?  ha

Just heard this on the NHL Network coverage.

Didn't see anything official yet but that was the word they got and reported.

"Its official the Brodeur era is over in NJ"

 

TG saying its a one year, two-way contract....maybe this means backup duties can be rotated between him and Kinkaid ?

Well, there goes my list...2-way deal for Clemmer though - we may see some Kinkaid yet.

Yikes...he's been pretty bad the last couple of years.  .874 and .896 save%s.  Looks like Kinkaid is going to get a shot to win the backup job.

Precisely why I had ruled him out. I figured Lou was going to go for a real backup - Chad Johnson/Darcy Kuemper type.

Why in the world would they sign someone with a worse GAA and save percentage than Brodeur??

This is awful. I hate this move. At least sign a real backup. Thanks for everything Marty. I hope you retire.

Since its 2-way, probably to play in Albany.

They're hoping Kinkaid wins the job.  Clemmer (I hope) was signed to be the #3 guy, a veteran with NHL experience who can step in if Kinkaid gets hurt or doesn't get it done.  I just can't believe he's the clear #2.   

 

Cory's definitely not threatened now...he's going to get 65+ games for sure with who he's got behind him.  But it's REALLY scary to think what could happen if he ever got hurt.  A tandem of Clemmer and Kinkaid?  Yikes, yikes, and yikes.

The one thing that didn't happen today that I was hoping for is a Schneider extension. Now that he knows Marty isn't coming back, hopefully that will get done soon.
