When it comes down to it the Avalanche may be the only team in the market for top dollar goalie. You have to consider the following scenario.
The only buyer for Cujo is Colorado. Does Detroit eat the $8m and carry the distraction all year just to keep him away from Colorado? Does Colorado feel like they will have a better shot of getting thru Hasek, Giguere, & Turco with Aebischer or with Cujo? To be honest with you, IMO if Detroit keep Cujo and Colorado tries to make it fly with a playoff rookie like Aebischer both Detroit and Colorado will go down in flames.
Hasek really stirred this pot. No way the Detroit could not keep him and allow HIM to end up in Colorado.
