Boston Gets a Proven Goalie For Nothing

Minnesota's depth at the goaltending position has allowed them to send their former starter Manny Fernandez to the Boston Bruins in exchange for Petr Kalus and a fourth round pick. Kalus was a 2nd round pick in 2005 and had 4 goals and 5 points in 9 games last season with the Bs. Clearly this was a case of Minnesota clearing some cap space and in doing so they have essentially announced that Josh Harding, a surprise sophomore from last season, will spend next season backing up last year's fantasy sleeper, and the man that almost single-handedly earned me a fantasy championship, Niklas Backstrom.
