We just signed Vasili Demchenko, a 26 year goalie from the KHL. Price's backup next season?
Just as risky as going after Kinkaid

I think we should find a Halak type and pay him 3 mil to solidify our goaltending

Price is too erratic and shitting the bed for 2 months every year kills us

If you thought Molson was cheap before just wait, this shutdown will make him even cheaper. I wouldn’t be surprised at the continuance of a secret internal cap.

Cheap will come to all teams in a reduced cap

Spending on a reliable goalie is the best investment this regime can make

I would rather play hardball with Domi before I get a 1B goalie

Why though? He's a backup in the KHL, and an average one it seems. What's the point?
I don’t think the Habs brass see Lindgren and McNiven as part of the pipeline anymore.

I think we all know Primeau will be the #1 guy in Laval with Demchenko possibly as the #2 with some comfort thathe can step in as a backup in the NHL.

He’s pretty much the new Lindgren

Yep. Anything that would help support Price and optimize his performance seems like a no brainer investment

I don't know what they are doing. Back to 4 goalies in the system, does this mean McNiven has to go back to the ECHL? They have to move one of Lindgren or McNiven.
