Wow, that's tough... I guess there weren't many teams interested as reports were saying. Or Jimbo didn't want to retain anything..


We are going to need a veteran backup just in case of injury you would think. Cause if demko gets injured and silovs and Dipietro are our goalies. We would be in big trouble

Not surprising. Having the extra $3.8M this year in cap space is certainly helpful, especially if they acquire a backup for less than $2M. Use that extra $1.8 towards paying out the RFAs.


With the extra $1.9M penalty next year, I imagine they are confident DiPietro will be next season's backup.

It’s going to be a very interesting offseason. Lots of work for Benning and he got us going with the OEL trade. Then bought out Jake. Now Holtby as well. It’s either we’re going to find a cheap replacement for him or we’re about to be giving DiPietro a shot

We literally just signed him! Admitting a mistake so soon.  

Someone take the keys from Jimbo. Let him drive the drafting and personnel. Someone else do contracts. Pls.
