Martin Gerber, Anaheim Mighty Ducks - Gerber is the probable starter for Sunday's game against the Blackhawks, reports the LA Times. Gerber is clearly outplaying Jean-Sebastien Giguere at the moment and even though a shift in the hierarchy is unlikely, Gerber could begin getting a larger chunk of starts in Anaheim and of course, that would be at the expense of Giguere.
Phil Sauve, Colorado Avalanche - Sauve is the probable starter for Sunday's game against the Sabres, reports the Denver Post.
Sean Burke, Phoenix Coyotes - Burke is the probable starter for Sunday's game against the Canucks.
Martin Biron, Buffalo Sabres - Biron is the probable starter for Sunday's game against the Avalanche. If Biron starts as expected and does well, it will surely solidify his status as Buffalo's current #1 goalie. He needs to have a strong game to give himself some job security.
Michael Leighton, Chicago Blackhawks - Leighton is the probable starter for Sunday's game against the Ducks.
Dan Cloutier, Vancouver Canucks - Cloutier is the probable starter for Sunday's game against the Coyotes.
Curtis Joseph, Detroit Red Wings - Joseph's conditioning stint in Grand Rapids is over, GM Ken Holland confirmed on Saturday night. Joseph will rejoin the Wings in time for Monday's practice and will accompany the team on their four-game road trip. The plan as of now is to start him in one of those games, in hopes of speeding up the process of showcasing him to others in hopes of a trade.
Miikka Kiprusoff, San Jose Sharks - Kiprusoff is likely to be traded by the Sharks sometime within the next couple of weeks, reports the San Jose Mercury News. This bit of info came directly from GM Doug Wilson's brother but it's really no secret as the team has been looking to trade one of Kiprusoff or Vesa Toskala since the season began. Toskala has outplayed Kiprusoff so far this year (including preseason) so he's the one that gets to stay. It remains to be seen though what deal Wilson will swing as the market for goalies is relatively soft at the moment.
Jeff Hackett, Philadelphia Flyers - Hackett was not impressive on Saturday night, letting in four goals for the third straight start but he managed to come out with a 4-4 tie to his name. Fortunately for Hackett, Robert Esche isn't playing much better so he still has a stranglehold on the Flyers' #1 goalie position.
