What will be one of the most active summers in recent memory around the Central Division started with a couple moves involving goalies on Friday.
In the morning, the Chicago Blackhawks put goaltender Alexander Salak on waivers. Salak, who was acquired from Florida with Michael Frolik in the trade sending Jack Skille to the Panthers, spent last year with Rockford and was injured for much of the season. His time with the Blackhawks organization has ended after one year.
Later in the day, the Nashville Predators made a fairly significant trade. Nashville sent the RFA rights to netminder Anders Lindback, along with forward Kyle Wilson and a 7th round pick in 2012 to the Tampa Bay Lightning in exchange for two 2012 second-round draft picks, a 2013 third-round selection and goaltender Sebastien Caron.
