There are a lot of problems to having him around. He needs to get matches regularly. And Hasek will need loads of matches to stay in shape. And that is without taking Legace into account. That in itself is a distraction imho, ie having to play with a goalie you want to offload.

The alternative is not to play Cujo at all or even worse send him to AHL. That will not increase the chances of a team picking him up.

Cujo seems to have taken the whole situation well, but he has needs of his own. He will probably demand game time. And with him having a no trade clause I think Detroit will be slightly careful about mistreating him.

As for him being the #1 goalie next season - I find it hard to believe. When you send a strong signal that you don't have faith in him as a #1 goalie that is it. He is unofficially the scapegoat for last years playoff, despite not deserving it.
