As far as Tjutin or Blackburn, I doubt Sather would move Blackburn, and Tjutin is the only projected top 2 defensive prospect the Rangers have so that is also unlikely. Perhaps a guy like Lampman, who has looked extremely solid the last two preseasons for the Rangers though.

I remember reading somewhere that Lunqvist could actually be a better goaltender than Blackburn. I haven't seen Lunqvist play so I couldn't verify that though.

Would either of these seem fair:

Lundmark, Lampman, and a second round pick.


Just Blackburn for Comrie.

Perhaps I am overvaluing Blackburn, but he has looked like the real deal.
I don't think getting a prospect goaltender is a huge priority right now given the presence of Deslauriers in the system. I think the Oilers would consider taking a prospect as part of a package (as they always do), but they MUST get a roster-ready player of the defenseman or centre variety.

Therefore the first deal is more doable - but I don't know anything about Lampman so can't make a guess as to how fair the deal is.
