The Goalie Carousel

Roster Talk

With the signing of Josh Harding today, and the subsequent walk off the deep end by many Blue Jackets fans, I thought I would put together a quick list of the goalies that are either available as unrestricted free agents and trade, as well as goalies who might be available by trade, and those goalies that are currently unsigned restricted free agents (of those with 10+ NHL GP last year). This list is currently sorted by even strength save percentage, which is the best statistic for goaltenders that is readily available (removes the randomness/team factors of shorthanded and powerplay goals). Also included are the standard save percentage and goals against average (and the chart is sortable). Curtis Sanford, Allen York and Steve Mason are also in there for perspective. So dig in and let us know in the comments what goalies you want to see in Union Blue next season!
