Afternoon Line


Agree, disagree?

In case you missed the news, Corey Crawford signed for $36M over 6 years.

With the talk of the salary cap hitting the $80M mark in 3-4 years, I think the contract is a little over-priced, but not a bad signing at all.

Report- Corey Crawford Day-To-Day With Possible Concussion

from Tim Sassone of Between The Circles,

Corey Crawford is day-to-day with an upper body injury, Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville said after his No. 1 goalie missed Friday’s morning skate.

Henrik Karlsson was recalled from Rockford to be Ray Emery’s backup on Friday against San Jose. The 6-foot-6, 209-pound Karlsson was acquired from Calgary on Jan. 21 for a seventh-round draft pick in 2013.

Crawford is believed to have been hurt late in Tuesday’s shootout loss to Anaheim when he was run over by Bobby Ryan. It’s believed he suffered a concussion.

Chicago Goaltender Crawford Continues To Work On His Game

from Chris Kuc of the Chicago Tribune,

A year ago at this time, Crawford was concentrating on securing the backup job to veteran Marty Turco. This time around, after winning the starting job midway through last season and earning a three-year, $8 million contract, Crawford is developing the mindset needed to be a No. 1.

“I’m just trying to prepare myself mentally for that,” Crawford said. “It almost seems like you have to work harder and be a little readier when you’re in that position. I still have to battle and I still have to work for my ice time.”

When the Hawks hit the ice Saturday for the first official practice of camp, Crawford will head to the crease after a summer spent working on improving his game.

“I feel strong (and) quicker,” said Crawford, who worked for a week on technique with Hawks goalie coach Stephane Waite during August. “I’m eager to go and I’m excited for the season.”

A Second Look at Goalies

image

In my previous preview of the top goalies, I had mentioned Tim Thomas, Roberto Luongo, Henrik Lundqvist, Pekka Rinne, and Ryan Miller as my top five options. Upon reflection and much debate, I discovered many other names that could be considered top 5 (or at least top 10). Many goalies are drafted in the early rounds of fantasy drafts, since top-notch starting goalies can be impossible to find on the waiver wire once the season starts. To help you find the right goalie(s), I have provided ten more goaltending options that could legitimately fall into the category of the NHL’s better starting goalies. And I promise that there will be no commercials while you read this.

Chicago Wants To Sign RFA Crawford

from Chris Boden of CSNChicago,

While the Blackhawks continue proceeding down the stretch for now without Patrick Sharp, they’re already taking steps to make Corey part of their long-term core.

In a sitdown interview with Comcast SportsNet Thursday, Blackhawks Vice President and General Manager Stan Bowman says the process has begun in hopes of locking up rookie goaltender Corey Crawford before he becomes a restricted free agent following this season.
