Something’s Gotta Give in Chicago

From Ryan Kennedy at The Hockey News,

There must be a second part to this move.

The Chicago Blackhawks signed goaltender Cristobal Huet to a deal worth $5.625 million per season for four years, THN has learned.

Now, the Hawks still have No. 1 goalie Nikolai Khabibulin on the books for a very cap-unfriendly $6.75 million next year, so something’s gotta give here.

Not only do the Hawks now have quite a lot of cash tied up in goaltenders, but the funny thing about that position is you can only have one on the ice at any given time and most starting netminders tend to want to be out there as much as possible.

continued…

On TSN about 15 minutes ago, Darren Pang reported that in his conversation with GM Dale Tallon today, Tallon claimed they would be carrying both goalies into next season.  To add intrigue,  Bob McKenzie also mentions that Tampa goalie Mike Smith—who just signed an extension earlier today—might now be shopped.

Finally, about six months longer than it should have taken, the Rangers and Rozsival are on the verge of signing a new contract.

Afternoon Line

Adrian Dater at All Things Avs in the Denver Post:

I should have written last night that the Avs might go after Darcy Tucker. I was going to do that, but somehow screwed up and forgot to do it. Oh well. He’s an Av, by the way, signing a two-year deal.
