    Default Minny Tenders

    Anybody have any insight/guesses as to what happens in Minny as far as goalies go?

    Iíve got Duby on my squad, dropped Stalock a while back and Kaapo Kahkonen is on FA. Our league is done and keepers are not due for some time but I have 2 FA pickups left if I need. Right now I still need to drop two, Duby isnít making the cut along with one of Pulj, Chych or Schwartz For the other.

    Goalies are tight in my league so having a few options is nice. Iím gettin itchy fingers lookin at Stalock and Kaapo just sittin there but I know deep down I couldnít keep them both, or even one of em. Itís possible they are available to me in the 2nd round in the top half. Also watching closely the Griess situation to see where he goes which will play into this as well.

    I can see a split between stalock and Kahkonen. Duby could be bought out; or somehow even if he starts the year, I don't see him finishing as the #1.

    Either way I think Kahkonen has some great long term potential (and Minny does have some young promising players) but won't give you much this year. No Minny goalie will.

    Minnesota's goalie situation is going to depend greatly on what happens during this playoff run. I would be shocked if anyone other than Dubnyk or Stalock started more than 30 games next season. With that said, I don't think you should waste one of your limited free agent pick ups to acquire a goalie that you won't be keeping and that will have almost no trade value.

    Dubnyk should bounce back next season.

    I think its more likely that MIN signs one of the goalie FA this year. Their ownership seems to refuse to go into a proper rebuild and they have the cap space and need to go after Lehner, Markstrom or even Holtby. So I'd just stay away from all three for now.

    My best guess is that Minny is going to give the reigns to Stalock to start and see what he can do and have Dubnyk as his backup option. I dont see Kahkonen in the NHL as a regular for another full season. Both Dubnyk and Stalock are signed for one more season and will be there while they allow Kahkonen more development time but again, that's just my guess on short term potential for their goalies.
