Say, the Chicago Blackhawks have defense ...
Enough, in fact, that backup goalie Ray Emery went 17-1-0 in 21 games last season with a 1.94 GAA. It’s no slight to Emery to say that the Blackhawks gave a very good goalie incredible numbers.
Now it’s Khabibulin’s turn to get that support. Again.
Khabibulin signed a 1-year, $2-million contract with the Blackhawks to back up Corey Crawford, returning to a franchise he played for from 2005-2009, before leaving for the Edmonton Oilers.
Crawford established himself as the starter in winning the Stanley Cup. The Bulin Wall doesn’t have much left to offer beyond spot starts. It’s a good fit for both.
