Now it seems like the most Halak could get you is late 1st round or high 2nd round draft pick.
I think gainey would accept any offer straight up if it included an established #4 dman. Is that so much to ask for?
The market is so bad cause there are way more goalies available than teams struggling with goaltending.... that and the fact that no GM is pushing the panic button yet.
As much as we like Halak and his potential; the fact remains that a guy with 20 or so career NHL starts hasn't proven much at this point in his career. Keep him for a year and a half... give him 25-30 starts a year. Hopefully he is as good as we all think, cause if he is then his value will go up.
