Also, at this stage of their careers, Halak is better than Kolzig. The 3rd round pick we could get for Jaroslav would not be worth the drop in quality for those 30 games.
True, however we've never had clear cut #1 goalies in that time though. When Huet was our "#1" he would get injured and the backup would play a ton of games. I fully expect Price to play 65-70 games next season. I still think Halak is our best bet for the remaining work load.
