I agree.
If Hasek's our goalie, then we should trade Cujo to whomever can give us the best return, and, theoretically, that's Colorado.
As a Wings fan, I'm far more comfortable with hasek in net. But I also know very well that Cujo can win a series all by his lonesome. And wouldn't he love to do it for Colorado.
Even if Colorado never had to face detroit, winning the cup in Colorado would be a big slap to Holland and the WIngs.

And, though I'm a Wings fan, I think the club's reputation as a classy, family-oriented organization took a big hit with their shoddy treatment of Cujo, who really is a top notch guy even if his goaltending isn't where I'd like it to be.
