    Question 2020 Musical Goalie Chairs [GAME]

    OK... little fun project for the day.
    Fill in the 62 NHL goalie slots for the 2020-21 season.
    I'll put the "locks" in (with UFA/RFA year in brackets)...
    And you guys predict the guys in the "pile"

    Ullmark (BUF - arb.RFA)
    Rittich (CGY - 2021, but do they still want him?)
    Talbot (CGY - UFA)

    Howard (DET - retirement candidate)

    Fleury (VGK - 2022, but do they still want him?)
    Lehner (UFA)
    Holtby (UFA)
    Brossoit (UFA)


    Talking Points:
    1. Seattle expansion draft will be summer of 2021... so teams will work towards not having a 2nd goalie "of value" that they may lose for no return.
    2. There are only 15-20 goalies (out of 62!) with contracts (or RFA value-status) extending beyond 2021... kind of crazy.
    3. I see retirements for Ryan Miller, Jimmy Howard, Mike Smith, and Craig Anderson - so four "off list" goalies have to come thru (minus, I listed 3 for MIN)
    4. Markstrom, Lehner, and Holtby should be the IN-DEMAND UFA signings - so which clubs want them badly enough!!?

    So... who you got "on the move"?


    SUPER BONUS QUESTION: Name the starting SEATTLE KRAKEN goalie for opening night for them in 2021-22.

    My initial reaction to the Oilers goalies is that Koskinen will be back and it wouldnt surprise me to see Mike Smith come back for one more year simply due to the FA goalies asking prices being too high. Not ideal, but wont surprise me at all.

    I'd love to see someone like Lehner come in. That would be just peachy for Edmonton, but he's earned a big money, long term contract and that's just not something Kenny Holland likes to invest in.

    Khudobin in these playoffs is pricing himself out of Edmontons reach as well. Maybe someone like Greiss comes in, but he doesn't excite me a whole lot. Who knows, maybe they go back to the well and trade for another NYR backup in Georgiev. For that matter, maybe they bring Talbot back on a short term deal too, although I dont think Calgary lets him go.

    Matt Murray is getting dealt this off-season. You can bank on that. Just not sure he's in Edmontons wheelhouse.

    My best guess is Smith and Koskinen for another year. God help us LOL!

    Fleury gets traded for Jones in a larger deal with salary dumped in Buffalo (with Hutton going to SJ) so that Lehner can be signed for 7M a year and SJ gets a veteran winning goalie to bring them back up in Fleury and a better backup in Hutton.
    Hank retires.
    A lot of guys stay where they are.
    Detroit signs Brossoit to take over backup duties for now.
    Saros and Petersen take over the "starter" role with 45-50 starts.
    Montreal needs a veteran backup and gets Greiss.
    Holtby is a strange fit in Buffalo but neither of them have many better options.
    Vanecek wins the backup battle in WSH
    Smith doesn't want to move far and lands as the backup in WPG
    Crawford and CHI re-up just because of familiarity - Delia beats out Subban as the backup.
    Calgary makes changes to their skater core but keep their same goalies.
    I think that was most of it...

    Where can we put money on how many of the "locks" end up not being true?!!

    This sounds fun. I will work on my list later tonight.

    Not to take the piss out of your whole post but... Elvis is exempt from the expansion draft so it's safe to assume Korpi will be protected.

    Yeah... forgot about that. Was a little distracted at the end. Going to look at this again and come up with another answer...

    I guess the tandem could be Demko and Grubauer. Not sure who out of that would get the start though.
