Remember that Salo enters the first club-option year on his contract next season at 4M per...LOL. No way that will be picked up to the dough saved there could easily pay for a top d-man like Gonchar. Of course, It all depends on the Caps willingness to trade him, and the chances of signing him long term.
I'm sick of paying 4M bucks for a BAD goalie. The kind of money should only go to tenders that win games on their own on a consistant basis. Other teams are getting by just fine with goalies making 1.2-2.5 Million.

Um... how did this get to Salo? Gonchar right? Even if we could trade for another netminder, I wouldn't want to cut corners at the goalie position to be honest. I expect to pay our #1 netminder $4 million, whoever it is.
