But it s obvious that we need help, we had one of our best younger D men up this year and he did not cut it, Michalek is like a -14 in houston, Wanvig, Vellieux, and Wallin are coming along but they had their chances and show they still need work. The rangers, isles and atlanta are looking to make the make playoffs and have poor GA. Do we shop one now, later, after the seaon, or never. And who? Rolo IMO is playing better, only by a small margin, Manny is younger.
The 3 teams that you have mentioned:
Isles have DiPietro as their #1, he is on pace for over 50 games, Snow is a decent backup, although they do need some sort of shakup on the oong isalnd.
Atl has a log jam with Nurminen, Dafoe, Hurme, Lehtonen. I dont know if they would be willing to add another one to the mix.
NYR-Fernandez/Roloson aren't a proven upgrade over Dunham.
I dont thin'k a goalie is a hot item in the NHL these days.
Myself, I would rather see one of the skaters being traded if there was a trade coming our way.
