    are my choices. I agree with EB buyout/demote Crawford, whichever is more advantages to you. It's only 1yr
    Koskinen I would cut. Could try shopping, but moving to 1 G is going to limit his value - unless someone has Edm as a sleeper team for next season in your league.
    I want nothing to do with Hutton. He's garbage & Ullmark will lock down the starting gig next year.

    I would hold onto Binnington and Raanta and drop/trade/buyout the rest of you goalies out. This league is doing a reset, now is the time (with these new summer rules) to clear the decks of what you don't need. You need to both be cap-flexible and goal-flexible, and you can't do either until you trim the fat.

    I know... it never happens. As a back up option giving cuffs to Binnington, he's way more palatable than 55+ gp a year. That and he's 2m cheaper than Crawford and I like Hutton less.

    Given the new options you have, and that lots of goalies are going to suddenly become available:

    Keep Raanta/Binnington, duh.

    Farm Crawford, it's cheaper since he has 1 year left. It's either 1.2 million just this year or 1 million this year and 1 million next year. I'd want that extra million next year and the probable result of him starting the season healthy due to no hockey, being a starting goalie, and having some trade value.

    With Hutton & Allen it depends on what you want. It's not cheaper to farm them due to their contracts having 2 years left.

    Hutton might have some value to whomever has Ullmark, but if there's nothing working there, I'd probably buy him out. He's old, and has never really been a majority starter except for last year, and the stretches where his competence wrested the starting job from.....

    Jake Allen. This guy is not truly a starting caliber NHL goalie. That sentence means I'd lean towards buying him out, but you do have Binnington. Options here are as follows, given that Allen is $4.35 million with 2 years left:

    Buyout now: 33% of $4.35M so $1.45M over 4 years = 0.36M, 0.36M, 0.36M, 0.36M
    Farm, then buyout at 66% rate next year = 0.87M, 1.45M, 1.45M, 0.00M
    Farm this year & next = 0.87M, 2.18M, 0.00M, 0.00M

    It really depends if holding Allen as a handcuff is worth it to you. You might need to call him up, and that increases his salary to normal, right?
    10 team Head-to-head true dynasty. Roster 33, draft 2, cut down before season. Start 1 G, 1-2 backup G's, 6 D, 12 F arranged in 4 lines of 3. Only categories that matter are Goals, Assists, Save% with a shutout bonus. Having NHL teammates helps.

    G: F Andersen
    Backup G: Holtby
    D: Hainsey, M Reilly, Carlson, Gustafsson, Klingberg, Letang,
    F1: Couturier, Giroux, MacKinnon
    F2: Schiefele, Wheeler, Guentzel
    F3: Benn, Seguin, Pavelski,
    F4: Point, Stamkos, Tavares

    Bench:
    G: Bobrovsky
    D: Gardiner, Gostisbehere, Schultz, Werenski
    F: Bailey, Johnsson, Killorn, Labanc, JT Miller, Necas, Tuch, Voracek

    Reserve: Datsyuk

    Buyout math is actually 33% of the salary each of the years for twice as long as the length of the contract, it's not 33% spread out over that many years. So Crawford would be 2M for each of the two years, and Allen is 1.45M for all four years.

    That probably affects your logic a little.
