It's really hard to get value for a goalie who's not already starting. Anaheim couldn't trade Bryzgalov for anything, and that kid is great. Turco was traded for, I think, a third round pick, and went on to be a top NHL starter immediately.

Neil Smith tried again and again to trade VBK for decent value and failed.

For some reason, goalie value is really low.
