so is dunham next to go? yeah we know rucinsky and barney are on the way out, but those 2 i can see sather holding until tuesday to see who will give up the most for them
malakhov, poti and de Vries are all in rumours but malakhov is the only one i can see being moved because he is a rental that wont cost much, whereas de Vries and poti will
i still feel something big is brewing and we all know sather wants a goalie and mclennan is not that guy, also the fact that we got josh green to waste some space here for the rest of the season?
could sather be working a barnaby, dunham, malakhov, and cash to the avs for moore and young goalie phillipe sauve who could be a starter and is a NY native?
just some food for thought
Maybe there is a deal in the work, but not this one. We have Blackburn and Lundqvist in the system so why use assets for a 3rd goalie? I assume either Blackburn or Lundqvist would split time in the NHL while the other started in the AHL so why bring Sauve? He's not worth what his cost would be unless its straight up for Dunham. As for Moore we've aquired plenty of 3rd and 4th liners already. Moore and Moore might be cool but lets be honest - not exactly Sedin type talent where you'd like to match it up.
