Central Division Roster Moves Begin

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.

    I heard one guy talk about Salak being “the steal in this trade”. Did not know if he was a Panther fan or not, seems like he was doen`t it? Does anyone know any thing about our 2/ 20 yr. old goalies? Are they fast, read plays well,good vision? All we have now is hoping CC gets game. Should a goalie be picked 1st round?

    First, Kent, Carruth is the future. Second, never take a goalie in the first round.

    Last summer it seemed like Salak was the future, exciting to see the team making room for their younger goaltending prospects.
