    TSN has Alex III returning.

    Sounds more like an AHL-interest trade. But since AG is a center, perhaps he’s back in the system in case of emergency.

    I guess my 1 question for the day is…
    What are we going to do with 3 goalies?

  5. SpartyCuse says:

    No idea VT. Huet could be a #1, but the Caps already have 2 goalies. I was waiting all day for them to make a deal with one of them. I dont see BJ being sent to Hershey, so I guess one will be scratched each night. Olie and Huet are UFA’s after this year.
    Its going to be interesting to see how BB juggles this situation. Its going to be sticky, thats for certain.
