Here's a nice piece on why dealing a top goalie doesn't make as much sense as people think.


It's hard to get good players in the league. When you have them, you keep them.

The line of thinkign with these types of posts (i know, generalization) is "we can trade x for a player, a prospect and a pick...and then trade for this guy or sign this player to fill his spot. We'll be better!" It really never works out that way. Thats Playstation think.

Or you can ditch the proven vet for a kid, which also often doesnt work out.

For me
1. why does a team that struggled to find a real goalie deal him when they finally get him.
2. why do we get proposals to trade every player over 25, even if they are good?

It's just not realistic. Especially given the Sens have already shown they arent willing to do the "blow up the team" rebuild the Oilers and Pens did.
