Definitely this is where being 35 pays off for turco. Multi year (3) deal incentive laden.....

I've said it elsewhere, but Theo at 1.5 > Niemi at anything over 2.5

They traded Calder 2 days later....

And the stats back that up, as I said before. Detroit doesn't have one and they were in the finals two years in a row. Fluery is very good but when you have Crosby....

You can get a average goalie that gets hot at the right time (see Philly and Chicago and Montreal) and go a long way in the playoffs.
