Skinner skated with the taxi squad this morning, so he’s headed to the press box for the 3rd game in a row.

NFL is like that too. The top receivers in the 70s would only have like 60 catches for 900 yards. That would be top 5 in the NFL.

Of course they only played a 14-game season throughout most of the 60s, but the point is still valid.

Wild put goalie Alex Stalock on waivers. He’s not much of, if any, upgrade to Ned, but he’s under contract for next season with a $785k cap hit, $750k actual. It solves the ”we don’t have a goalie to protect” problem though.

That might be a cheaper option for the Canes' summer issues than some others, but I doubt Staylock lasts long enough on the waiver list for it to matter.

If another team claims him the Canes might be able to make a trade. His stats were decent last year so it is likely he is picked by a lower ranked team

If somebody else claims Stayock, it will be because they have an immediate need. Carolina doesn't even really have that, so ... yeah. They might make a move for him (or somebody in similar circumstances) later on, but it's not likely to happen in the short term.

How many goalies did Edmonton lose to Waivers? Forsling and...
I think that's all (NOT doing a deep dive on that subject), but they've had problems keeping guys healthy ... and the fact that their two primary keepers sort of suck.
