Developed goaltender for a 7th? Better believe this is what the Hawks were looking for their goaltending issues. He might not make an impact this season, but this is an absolute steal. I also think this decreases the rumours of Luongo to Chi town.
Emery let in 4 goals last night. Perhaps they're not comfortable with him.
If Chicago wants him to play on their team now or be an option in future, good for us as he's not that great. Each time I've seen both Karlsson and Irving (AHL and NHL) I haven't been impressed. Of course they're better than me in net, but that's not saying a lot since it's the one position I didn't play just because I was that bad at it.
I don't know the Rockford goalie situation, but it's most likely this is an AHL deal as has been mentioned.
