Before the pandemonium that is NHL free agency begins tomorrow morning, let's talk about the Vancouver Canucks goaltending situation, and the negotiations with Jacob Markstrom.

Should Markstrom head to free agency, the Edmonton Oilers are reported to expressing major interest in the 4th place Vezina Trophy candidate.

Furthermore, we're also touching on Anton Khudobin and Cory Schneider, two goaltenders headed to free agency—one via expiring contract and the other via a New Jersey Devils buyout—who've expressed that the Vancouver Canucks would be on their list of potential destinations for next season.
