“(It) depends on who it is,” said one league executive. “It’s always hard to move a goalie given (the fact) that there are only 58 places to put them.”
Teams looking for a goalie …
Sharks – GM Doug Wilson can be hard to deal with and is known for being a terrible tire-kicker. They may be more interested in Anderson than Lehner as he’s more proven. Garrioch is sort of kidding with the idea of the Sharks offering up Joe Thornton or Patrick Marleau.
Sabres – GM Tim Murray was with the Senators when they drafted Lehner. They have the draft picks to make a deal happen.
Oilers – They have already talked to the Senators.
Maybe, Maybe not …
Stars – Their hands may be tied with three more year of Kari Lehtonen at $5.9 million. They’d be interested in Lehner, but it wouldn’t be an easy deal to make.
Blues – Jake Allen may need more time and Brian Elliott isn’t going anywhere.
Maple Leafs – They have James Reimer under contract for one more year and Jonathan Bernier is a RFA. The Leafs should be able to get something for Reimer. Doubtful the Senators and Leafs would do a deal.
Other goalie that could be available: Cam Talbot, Cam Ward, Antti Niemi, Brian Elliott and Eddie Lack.
