I understand that Atl wants JVR straight up but that's just not going to happen unless we have really soured on JVR (and there's no reason to believe this). Lehtonen will likely get around 5 mil a year as an RFA this year and we could simply wait and make him an offer sheet. We'd have to give up liek a 1st and a 2nd at that price and that's far less valuable than JVR. Second, if we are going to take on about 5 mil in salary with Lehtonen then we are going to need them to take back about equal salary off the current roster.
I doubt Briere would waive his NMC to go to Atlanta but if he would do you think this trade is fair?
I live in Atl and this has to be one of the most unrealistic crack induced proposals I have ever read. WT*!! Lehtonen has zero upside to win a Cup. He has no value in PA vs any goalie we (Philly) have on the pro roster. Seriosly...this is a late April Fools joke - right?
