Ray Emery – Philadelphia Flyers (1 year, $1.65M)
As a backup to Corey Crawford, Emery had an outstanding 17-1 record, helping Chicago to the President’s Trophy. He was stuck on the bench througout the entire playoff run. Emery signed a one year, “prove yourself” deal, which will be the second time the Flyers have given him this opportunity. The first go-around ended with the hip injury from which he was not expected to recover. This time around he is both grown up and healthy and will compete with Steve Mason for the starting job. If he plays like he did in Chicago, he could be the low-priced answer to some of the Flyers’ woes.
