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.
The thing that doesn't make any sense to me, is that Simpson was left exposed over Hulse. Savage was a gimme to be exposed because of the monster contract, but why protect Nazarov. I really hope no one claims Boucher.
