    Hopefully this is just insurance and Freddy really is OK.

    I wouldn't have thought this was necessary, but at least people can stop complaining about Dubas not addressing our goaltending situation. More depth there is only a good thing I suppose

    Finally.

    I believe Hutch has cleared waivers, so he’ll likely be assigned to the Marlies and can come up if Andy or Sparks go down

    Pretty quick move. Does this indicate that Freddy might be out for an extended amount of time ??

    Even when Freddy gets back Hutchinson will be able to help with the Marlies.

    Dug.

    But he’s expected to be back for the next game. More about future injuries.

    Unless of course, Andersen’s injury is more serious than they are letting on.


    Either way, the Marlies needed goalie help. Hutch should at the very least do that.

    On the positive side...well that helps cover the depth issue a bit.

    On the down side...that screams that this is a serious injury for Andersen.

    I dont think so. You still dont want Kask starting with the way his season as gone. Dubas likely would have made this move either way.

    Yup, Andy's injury is legit, likely down for a few weeks. Hutchinson will be able to help the Marlies once Andersen is back too... good move all around for the franchise.

    Is there anyone that can confirm if Hutchinson has already cleared waivers?

    Well, it's an insurance policy that means they can take it slowly with Freddy without having to worry about burning out Sparks. I think that's a reasonable assumption.

    Or Option B, Freddy Andersen's groin injury actually is a career ender and they're just covering it up with minor deals to quell the mob frenzy before it starts...

    According to Kevin McGran, he'll report to Marlies.

    I don't think so bud, just insurance and the Marlies need help. If it was serious I dont think hutch would be the answer.

    Hutchinson used to be a decent name. No idea how good he is now

    Glad this is done.

    I don't think Freddy's injury is serious, but adding depth is never a bad thing. If he goes down then it gives us an option of a goalie that can play in the NHL. Good move.
