Simply put...yes he traded a popular player but he was trading a position that we have strength in. We have two number one goalies. We got a very good return for him. If we waited any longer, we may be stuck with two goalies still. The market remains very week for goalies. You look at Chicago, how they let go of Niemi after helping them win the CUP! He has been what..on the market for around two weeks and STILL NO JOB!!! Chicago gave him up for NOTHING. We got a very good young prospect and a potential grinder/3rd liner. I like Halak..but with the nature of the salary is what it is. People who complain we didn't get enough for him just don't know the reality of todays NHL...
