Teams interested in Ray Emery

From Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun:

Ex-Ottawa goalie Ray Emery won't be out of work long.

Judging by the initial reaction of NHL teams to Emery's status as an unrestricted free agent after being bought out last week by the Senators, the 25-year-old could have a new contract in hand not long after he's allowed to officially sign with another team on July 1.

Teams know that Emery won't cost a lot of money and he has proven he can play in the playoffs, so teams that have a need at goalie see him as a good option. I would think he'd probably end up on a team with a lot of veterans, as we have seen in the past how his actions can be divisive in the locker room.

Ballhype: hype it up!
