Just what have Getzlaf and Bryzgalov proven in the NHL - oh yeah - absolutely nothing. This deal has major major risk for the oil as both guys could be total busts or just plain mediocre. If you think this is a bad offer then give your head a shake - and look at these stats:
Paul Kariya (2001-02) 82 32 25 57 -15
Mike Comrie (2001-02) 82 33 27 60 +16
Paul Kariya (2002-03) 82 25 56 81 -3
Mike Comrie (2002-03) 69 20 31 51 -18
Comrie kicked your little ex-superstar's butt in 01-02 (note the +/- as well) and was on-track for the same kind of season before he broke his wrist and played the last half of last year in a cast (Comrie's +/- was actually positive before the injury). Yeah Getzlaf and Bryzgalov for MC is very very fair. If you're worried about your starting goalie in the minors - we'll toss you Valliquette for nothing if that calms you down.
