If you take into account nothing other than the bandwagon Redwings fan's view, this trade is good for all three teams. But if you aren't stupid, you realize that this trade screws Colorado and Washington improves dramatically. Colorado could get any number of goalies at a much cheaper price than Tanguay and pay the goaltender much less than (what is it, $8 m - $5 million the wings will pay, + whatever is left for the rest of this season= still too much for CuJo when they could get another goalie).

BTW, the reason for the Turco comparison isn't to say "hey Aebischer's numbers suck;" they are, I believe trying to make a point that even a goaltender who plays well in the regular season (Turco), he, especially if young/unproven, might not play well in the playoffs where it really matters.
