The Phoenix Coyotes have left goaltender Brian Boucher exposed. He was acquired last year from the Philadelphia Flyers but was battling Zac Bierk for the backup role behind Sean Burke.
Makes sense but I won't be surprised if it comes back to bite us in the butt. $2.2 million is a lot to pay a backup. Not sure I agree with it but I understand the logic behind the move. Of course there is a temptation to utilize an escalation of commitment and rationalize keeping Boucher.
If boucher gets picked up I wonder if Phoenix makes a pitch for Brent Johnson or takes Aebischer when and if Sean Burke is dealt.
