Have to be a dissenter on this one.
A 3rd isn't a high cost... but Scrivens isn't a particularly good goalie either from what I've seen of him.
I'd of course rather MacT had found a legit 1A type goalie or at least a solid backup... neither of which I really think Scrivens is at this stage... but I'd love him to prove me very wrong.
Again, a 3rd is not much to ***** about BUT does Scrivens improve the goaltending on this team over Dubnyk? Not really imo and that's how I assess whether a trade is good or not... whether the team will likely be better or not.
Let's see what he can do though of course... first impressions though are that this is another swing and a miss in the goaltending department by MacT.
