Nabakov can hold the fort .

All i say is this team is better trading Price.....
if there was no goalies avail like Brodeur or Miller or etc etc
, i would NEVER propose this idea.
That's my whole point. You can't just assume because they're UFAs that we have a shot at them or that they're "available". They might re-sign with their teams in the next two years, or they might never want to sign with us in the first place.
Here's a more realistic exercise: imagine we traded Price 2 years ago and had no back-up plan except to sign a UFA goalie on July 1st, 2012. Here's what we'd be looking at, in order of # of wins last season:
Basically if we don't sign the top guy on that list, we're up **** creek. That's what you're saying we should pin our hopes on. Your list of Lundqvists and Millers starts to look like a list of Raycrofts and Aulds in a hurry.
