Here's a quick rundown of them:

Gorges deals with the wrath of spurned Toronto fans -- Oct. 28 and March 11 at Air Canada Centre, Nov. 15 and April 1 at FNC

Ryan Miller (Vancouver) -- Jan. 30 at Rogers Arena, Feb. 26 at FNC

Christian Erhhoff (Pittsburgh) -- Nov. 1 at Consol Energy Center, Nov. 8 and April 11 at FNC

John Scott (San Jose) -- Oct. 25 at SAP Center, Nov. 18 at FNC
