Teams that could be looking for a goaltender

Luke Fox of Sportsnet: Free agent goaltender who got in at least 20 games this past season: Bobrovsky, Semyon Varlamov, Robin Lehner, Mike Smith, Keith Kinkaid, Petr Mrazek, Anders Nilsson, Cam Talbot, Cam Ward, Curtis McElhinney, Brian Elliott, and Ryan Miller.

Teams that could be looking to add a goaltender or two.

Carolina Hurricanes – Both Mrazek and McElhinney are UFAs.

Columbus Blue Jackets – Bobrovsky and Kinkaid are UFAs and Joonas Korpisalo is a RFA. Could the look at Lehner or Mrazek on long-term deals or Smith or Varlamov on a one-year deal.

Edmonton Oilers – Koskinen is signed for three more years. Holland is familiar with Mrazek.

Chicago Blackhawks – Corey Crawford has a year left and has an injury history. Ward is a UFA. Colin Delia is a worthy backup.

Calgary Flames – David Rittich is a RFA and will be looking for a raise from his $800,000. They could look re-sign Smtih.

Philadelphia Flyers – The Flyers have four free agent goaltenders in Talbot, Elliott, Michal Neuvirth and Mike McKenna. They could kick tires on McElhinney and Smith.

New York Islanders – The Isles have Thomas Greiss under contract for one more year. There could be a bidding war for Lehner and the Islanders may need to replace him.
