Lundquist at 38, if signed, would be a year-by-year contract.
I don't think that's right, you can expose an RFA so long as he's been qualified, but UFAs don't count.

Though I had thought there was an NHL games-played requirement for the exposed goalie, turns out I seem to be wrong about that:
* One goalie who is under contract in 2021-22 or will be a restricted free agent at the end of his current contract immediately prior to 2021-22. If a team elects to make a restricted free agent goalie available to meet this requirement, that goalie must have received his qualifying offer prior to the submission of the team's protected list.
There is an NHL games-played requirement for forwards and d-men , but not for goalies apparently.

If Marky walks and he is willing to sign for a year i suppose it would work. Has his game deteriorated bad or is there still some wins left in those old knees?

He would be a very good fit in a 1A/1B role with Demko. I'd even sign him for two years, but no expansion draft protection, if he wanted the added financial guarantee.

Well... his first twelve seasons with the team wins always outnumbered losses, then in 17/18 he went 26-26-7, in 18/19 he was 18-23-10 and this season in his 26 starts he was 10-12-3. Suppose he got yanked early enough in one game for it not to end up on his record. GAA was 3.17 and svs% .905.

Not great numbers, but not disastrous either.

His career regular season stats are 459-310-96 with 2.43 and .918, so yeah, he has deteriorated, but I still think he could have two more years in him at the NHL level. Especially if you see him as a mentor for a younger goalie. Probably won't ever become a Vezina candidate again though...

Also have to factor in that the Rags have been a deteriorating team over the past few seasons.
