Aebischer went for $600,000 yesterday.He made $1.9 million last season

Look around the NHL,there are no openings available

James Mirtle broke it down in his blog

It's either play for close to the NHL minimum of $475,000,play in Europe,retire or sit by the phone waiting for a team to call(Felix Potvin tried that two years ago and he did not receive a single offer)

Burke is the obvious choice because he worked with Benoit Allaire in Phoenix.Now that Aebischer is in Phoenix,Raycroft is staying in TO which closes a door for Cujo

Burke and Cujo don't need the money.If they want to continue their careers and play for a good team,the offer is 1 year/$500,000
Given the high turnove on this team already, i cant see us changing the back up position. I think Renney etc are comfortable with Vally there or they wouldnt have dressed him all playoffs even when Weekes was fit

Vally will start and CuJo wont have a spot opening night anyway IMO. Even Ty Conklin is being preferred to players like CuJO for back up jobs like in Pittsburgh...is this because he still wants to start? probably, but he isnt coming to NYC
