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.
Likely. Desperate move by a desperate man.

He is finding out that he has very few options.

Nobody of any worth is willing to come here if they have a choice J Schultz notwithstanding. Not easy to build a team that lacks veteran presence under those circumstances.

You are pretty much left with the draft and other team's garbage.
