The Avs do need a goalie. Aebischer has been adequate, nothing more. My guess was he would be replaced by Christmas, but if the Cujo situation is not resolved by then, it could be later. Lacroix has been making his blockbuster deals weeks before the deadline, so sometime in February would be my fallback position.

I can also see the Avs picking up a UFA-to-be 4th-5th defenseman near the deadline...someone they can get for a pick. There is no need to trade Skoula to fill that need. If they do trade Skoula...say in a goalie deal...they will need to pick up two defensemen so they have 7 going into the playoffs.
