Possible Fernandez Destinations

from Adam Proteau of the Hockey News,

So, which teams are likely to inquire about Fernandez? Florida, Phoenix and Los Angeles have been mentioned often, but one player agent believes the Maple Leafs are interested in the Toronto native. And that makes sense, as incumbent Andrew Raycroft clearly needs to be challenged for the starter’s job – and their two salaries (in terms of cap hit) combined would come in at $6.33 million next season.

The reality is it’s not easy to trade a player when the team’s in need of a goalie (Phoenix, Florida and possibly Boston, Detroit and LA) all think the Wild HAS to trade Fernandez.
Right now, Risebrough would be lucky to at least get a mid-round pick for Fernandez because everybody believes he’s got to dump his $4.33 million cap hit. But Risebrough would love at least a first (Phoenix has two firsts), especially when he was able to trade Dwayne Roloson to Edmonton for a first-rounder in March 2006.
