I feel the same way.
Can we afford (cap wise) to resign both Biron and Niitty this offseason? and maybe more importantly would Nitty want to play second fiddle to Biron for another season? I read a little piece on FA goalies coming up this offseason and sounds like Thomas, Backstrom and Fernandez will be the only notable FAs and that Fernandez is the only one likely to actually hit the market.
we get rid of Biron and keep Niitty, would Fernandez be a good option? Would Fernandez even be an upgrade? He's 34 and his career numbers are almost identical to Biron's in terms of GAA and SV%.
Any others out there? Young goalies worth trading for that are viable?
My guess is that both Biron and Niitty both get one year contracts and we push this problem to 2010 offseason.
