As a result, the Kings have picked Sean Burke off of waivers from TB. During last nights game against the Coyotes, however, Burke was forced to leavede to apparent dehydration issues. This means that the Kings have been left with a purported NHL-caliber goalie who cant hold his water in long enough, and two goalies with little experience in The Show.
There is no doubt in my mind that with the Kings in a seven-game tailspin, they are going to go for another netminder. The question is: who(m)?
I believe, and bear with me...that this could be a reasonable trade that would benefit both teams...In the short AND long run...
To LA: Al Montoya, Byers, and a 2nd
To NYR: Jack Johnson, & Fukufuji or Labarbera, and a 5th
Let the flaming begin.
Your theory would make sense if you were talking about Kevin Weekes and not Montoya. You mention that they have two goalies with little experience, how does Montoya relieve that issue? Doesn't make any sense...
