Unless they add to their depth, it's iffy at best that the Avalanche will have the ability to rely on goaltending as their foundation in the playoffs with Kuemper leading the way and either Jonas Johansson or Pavel Francouz as the backup.Marc-Andre Fleury, a pending unrestricted free agent with the Chicago Blackhawks, would be the perfect addition if the Avalanche can make it work under the NHL salary cap. He's more cost effective with a $2.8 million cap charge compared to Fleury's $7 million charge, but Fleury has played 162 NHL postseason games and Korpisalo has played nine. -- @J18M19Retaining salary in a trade is the price the Canadiens have to pay if they want to save on the salary cap to build their team in other areas. Sam Montembeault and Cayden Primeau are backups who each can become a restricted free agent after this season, but I wouldn't think either could get more than $1 million in his next contract, so the Canadiens would be under $10 million for goaltending as opposed to paying $10.5 million for one goalie. I don't think it needs to be done immediately in NHL regular-season games, but perhaps this change can be analyzed through usage in the American Hockey League and in NHL preseason games. I think he needs another goalie to push him at this point in his career.Video: NJD@WSH: Blackwood makes stretching stopI've always been uncomfortable with the Masterton Trophy being awarded to just one person. The members of the Professional Hockey Writers' Association in each market nominates one player they deem worthy for the Masterton Trophy, which is given annually to the "NHL player who best exemplifies the qualities of perseverance, sportsmanship and dedication to hockey."All 32 teams will have their own Masterton nominee this season and one will be voted the winner.
