Free agency: Top goaltenders
Free Agent Tracker
It's the offseason, so that means free agency is around the corner. Keep track of all the player movement as the market opens July 1.
Unless GM Dale Tallon can find a taker for Cristobal Huet (he's under contract for the next three years), Tallon will be forced to watch Khabibulin walk. The Kings are in need of a veteran goaltender to hold the fort in what is an important season for them. The Avs, in disarray, are without a bona-fide No. 1 netminder. Hard to imagine anyone paying Khabibulin what he was making before, but he's still the top netminder in a lean market.
Other free-agent goaltendersOther names of note come July 1: Martin Gerber, Manny Legace, Brian Boucher, Jason LaBarbera, Curtis Sanford, Curtis Joseph and Brent Johnson.
