But even if you take it at the face value of having been offered to Fernandez "at some point", then it's only sensible to assume that point was prior to the Sanford signing. I bet Gainey had similar offers out to at least half a dozen potential #3 goalies. All ticketed for Hamilton. All ticketed as the next Marc Denis. None of whose presence would have any bearing whatsoever on the default status of Price and Halak. Fernandez would have thought he could do better than a #3 job in the AHL. Sanford was willing to be our #3. End of story. That's what my razor suggests, anyway, if this rumour was true.
