Why did Saber not chase goalkeeper Anton Khudobin

According to Sportsnet’s Elliotte Friedman, although they are considered a team actively looking to improve their scoring and may be interested in the veteran tennis player qualifying for the exemption, don’t expect the Buffalo Sabers to give chase. Anton Khudobin, according to Sportsnet’s Elliotte Friedman.

As every Friedman, it seems the Sabers don’t care much for Khudobin. There are some who think they could be a team that has inquired about the goalkeeper in the past and/or are excited about the prospect of him being exempt as no assets will be handed over to get him. If Friedman’s comment that Sabers is not interested in adding Khudobin to the contract is true, then one of two cases is likely to be ruled out.

Friedman reports that the Sabers are looking for another goalkeeper but they want to find someone not as close to the end of their career as Khudobin. He has one more season on his current contract at $2.2 million per season (reaching a $3.33 million cap). It’s affordable, it’s fairly uncomplicated, but Sabers wanted to find someone they could invest in for the long term. That could be one of the reasons why they traded for Malcolm Subban – a fulcrum that is not yet established, but has some upside potential and is still nascent.

With no Sabers interested, there wasn’t much action on Khudobin, who gave up apparently and was loaned to the AHL by the Dallas Stars. As for the sequel, he’ll be in for some games and the Stars can see if he recovers from some lousy games. If not, they will likely try to move him and will have to withhold some wages to facilitate the transaction.

As for the long-term plans for the Dallas Stars, they cut the reserve roster in half. Ben Bishop’s career has come to an end as he is unlikely to return from injury and Khudobin will likely spend more than a few games in the AHL, unless injury or illness needs to be called up.
