    good pickup.

    However, there’s now three’s a crowd in Chicago.

    Khabibulin

    Lalime

    Caron

    Could they be preparing to unload Khabibulin in a deal?

    I always liked Caron because he was great in the regular season. He’s nothing I’d overpay for and he’s a backup at best. You need 2 skilled goalies to have any success however. Great move!

    Yes he was great during the regular season???

    WTF… have you watched any of this goalie before… not only did he give up the WORST goal in the league last year…. the goal that was basically a dump in from the other blue-line and went in… his stats however, are remarkable at a goals against average at 3.98and save percentage at .881 during the 2005-06′. As a Pens fan, yes this guy did make some remarkable saves, but who doesnt from time to time… Thanks Hawks for getting this joker out of town!

    Hey, remember Thibault? Yea me neither.

    I agree, Habby is out of there in a salary dump. There is no point having a expensive #1 goalie on a basement team. Caron and Lalime will be good enough for Chicago this season.

    Hey, remember Primeau. Wait, after all those concussions im pretty sure he doesnt even remember himself!!!!

    ahahahahaha TOUCHE!

  8. BLUE_AND_WHITE says:

    Where will he go? any team that needs a starter will go for Nabokov/Toskala, Biron, or Giguere first.

  9. BLUE_AND_WHITE says:

    Caron will Likely be an AHLer next season, he didn’t exactly flourish last season.

    yeah you gave him to us….Goddness did he suck ;-

  11. thegoalie1976 says:

    It depends on what the price is. If Chicago just want’s a salary dump he could be had for cheaper than the goalies you listed.

    mabey to detroit for holmstrom and a pick??????

    I think they just want out of the contract.

  12. CANADASFINEST says:

    Cool.

    It’ll be intersting to see how much he still sucks next season, although it’s not to say that the Hawks are all that much better of a team than the Burg, if at all.

  13. BLUE_AND_WHITE says:

    Detroit is looking for a cheap backup for Osgood, and think Biron is too pricy.

  14. Lint07 says:

    The goal you are referring to was against Nittymaki of the Flyers and Caron made the greatest save of the season that same night.

    get your facts straight.
