NHL Rumors: "Everyone" Looking To Waiver Wire For Help At One Position

Throughout the NHL, a collective gaze is fixed firmly upon the waiver wire, where a cadre of goaltenders is poised for potential roster changes.

The league is abuzz with anticipation as notable netminders like Eric Comrie, Ukko-Pekka Luukkonen, Alex Lyon, James Reimer, Cayden Primeau, Felix Sandstrom, and Martin Jones hover on the brink of new team assignments, according to Elliotte Friedman and Lyle Richardson.

Amidst this goalie carousel, skepticism prevails regarding some teams' claims of starting the season with three goaltenders, leaving many to adopt a "seeing is believing" stance.

Of particular interest in this scenario is the defending Stanley Cup champions, the Tampa Bay Lightning.

With their star goaltender, Andrei Vasilevskiy, set to miss an extended eight to 10 weeks due to lower-back surgery, the Lightning are actively scouting the waiver wire for a reliable netminder to fortify their goaltending depth.

As the NHL season commences, the goaltending situation remains a focal point of discussion and strategic planning for teams eager to bolster their crease options, ensuring that the waiver wire's twists and turns keep the entire league on high alert. Photo Credit: Aaron Doster-USA TODAY Sports
