Holmer could not come up with something a better than their trash.

Sad. Guess we really did not want to get rid of Bryzgalov at all.
We would prefer to keep Bryz or recycle an average FA instead of solidifying the goalie position.
Typical Holmer move, terrible mistake.
Seriously? Trash? Bernier was never going to get anywhere behind Quick. The Kings needed a winger and a backup to replace Bernier, and they got both. They have extra cap space and an extra half million which means they may be able to re-sign Scuderi after all, and a second rounder. Lombardi pieced together almost everything the Kings needed in one deal.

Holmgren has put himself in a very bad spot with Bryz. He needs to trade for a goalie now and hope to God that Mason can play better than he has in recent years. Buying out Bryz is addition by subtraction.
