I wonder if Kane for Bryzgalov would've helped us. He was considered a top 10 goalie around this time last year.

There are maybe like 5 goalies I'd consider trading Kane for. By in large, they simply aren't that valuable. They are the most streaky and unpredictable. One year Craig Anderson is an allstar, then next he has a sub .900 SV%. JS Giguere is a Conn Smythe winner and dominate and 2 years later he is a backup. Mike Smith is a backup, borderline AHL goalie in 2010-11, then in 2011-12 he is a top 5 goalie in the NHL statistically. No GM would be dumb enough to shop Kane for a goalie IMO but you never know with Bowman I guess.
I'm not talking about any #1 goalie, only specific ones.
There are lots of skaters I would trade him for too.
