Musical chairs at the wardens | NHL

The opening of the free agent market in NHL gives rise to a carousel of goaltenders. In a period of great financial constraints, the teams are showing themselves to be relatively cautious.

If we were in 2012, the goalkeeper market would have been exceptional. Think about it: Henrik Lundqvist, Braden Holtby, Corey Crawford free from any contract … But in the home stretch of their careers, these key keepers, and many others, had to change address. It will give a strange feeling to see these few legends under another uniform. But 2020 is the year of all uncertainties.

The salary cap will be frozen for three years, and under these conditions, almost all the teams have sought to downsize. We have rarely seen so many contracts bought, from Cory Schneider to Justin Abdelkader through Lundqvist, Bobby Ryan and many others. It was necessary to free up space in the short term, even if it meant having to pay a more or less large sum over the coming seasons.

Transactions have also abounded, each trying to offload large contracts for players with questionable production. Most of the profiles signed are signed in the short term: one or two years. This two-year figure is not trivial: it exposes the player to the Seattle expansion draft scheduled for next June. Everyone will have to have in their roster the expected number of goalkeepers, defenders and forwards for Seattle to build their team (except Vegas).

The main transfers are as follows:
Montreal acquires goaltender Jake Allen, who will assist Carey Price. In return, the Blues got two used draft picks this year. CH also get defender Joel Edmunson from Carolina. Montreal also gets rid of Max Domi, shipped to Columbus against Josh Anderson, immediately signed to a long-term contract.
– The Wild picks up Nick Bjugstad from Pittsburgh, and sends Eric Staal to the Buffalo Sabers against Marcus Johansson. They also choose veteran Nick Bonino, plus two draft picks, against Luke Kunin, sent to Nashville.
– The Penguins, active, send veteran Patric Hornqvist to Florida against defenseman Mike Matheson and winger Colton Sceviour.
Detroit frees the Rangers from Mark Staal’s big contract, in addition securing a 2021 second choice.
Chicago drops his young striker Dylan Sikura and takes over an old man, Brandon Pirri. The Hawks send Olli Maatta to Los Angeles against Brad Morrison. And finally, Brandon Saad is traded again, sent to Colorado with Dennis Gilbert against defensemen Nikita Zadorov and Anton Lindholm.
Florida still, who drops defenseman Josh Brown in Ottawa against a draft pick.
– The Sharks get Minnesota forward Ryan Donato and Minnesota goaltender Devan Dubnyk against draft picks.
– The Rangers have their former first choice Lias Andersson, who joins Los Angeles against a second round 2020. He will find his father there, scout for the Kings.
Ottawa replaces Craig Anderson with Matt Murray, acquired from Pittsburgh against Jonathan Gruden and a pick. Murray immediately signed for the long term. The Senators also get Anaheim defenseman Erik Gudbranson and Nashville forward Austin Watson.
Columbus degrease: exit the defenders Ryan Murray (New Jersey) and Markus Nutivaara (Florida), besides Josh Anderson.
– The Devils make targeted and inexpensive choices: Ryan Murray, therefore, against a 5th round draft, and Andreas Johnsson, a potential goalscorer blocked in Toronto, against Joey Anderson.
– Paul Stastny finds Winnipeg, sacrificed by Vegas, against defenseman Carl Dahlstrom.

On the market side of free agents, the most striking are:
– Henrik Lundqvist leaves Rangers for Washington
– Braden Holtby leaves Washington for Vancouver
– Jacob Markström leaves Vancouver for Calgary
– Cam Talbot leaves Calgary for Minnesota
– Corey Crawford leaves Chicago for New Jersey
– Kevin Shattenkirk leaves champion Tampa Bay for Anaheim
– Mikko Koivu leaves Minnesota and joins Columbus
– Bobby Ryan, on contract bought by Ottawa, joins Detroit
– Taylor Hall signs in Buffalo for 1 year
-Blues captain Alex Pietrangelo commits for 7 years in Vegas.
