A Look at How Things Worked out for Goalies in Free Agency

This article at nhl.com discusses the goalie signings after free agency began. I'll post the parts about José and you can make the jump to read about all the rest.

Three right-handed catching goalies also obtained quality opportunities. Josh Harding, Mathieu Garon, and José Theodore all signed low-salary deals right out of the gate Friday afternoon.


The other big winner to obtain a potential starting gig was Theodore. Although he's certainly capable of handling that role in Florida, he also struck gold in the sense that the Panthers spent millions of dollars to improve their defense.

Playing behind the newly acquired duo of Brian Campbell and Ed Jovanovski certainly will make Theodore's life a lot easier. For Florida, they should benefit from completely reversing their goaltending situation, as they go from a costly workhorse in Vokoun to a cost-efficient and experienced tandem in Theodore and Scott Clemmensen.
