Sauve Status?

Will Colorado try him again as backup neaxt season?

Given the Kipprusoff trade/results, would any team offer a draft pick for him?

I can't see him being dealt, if not solely for the fact that his father, Bob Sauve, has been close friends with Pierre Lacroix for over 20 years. Lacroix witnessed Phillipe's birth, for Christ's sake, and has given Sauve many opportunities to succeed. He failed miserably this year, in my opinion, and that means his trade value is relatively low at the moment.

I am sure he will be given every opportunity to back-up David Aebischer again, even though I feel Peter Budaj is better than Sauve both at the moment and in the future.

He sucks too much to be the backup for Aebischer. The Avs need to bring in a better backup for Aebischer.

I think we might see Sauve back in the minors next year(if he's eligible) with the Avs signing a veteran back-up for Abeischer. Sauve proved he's not ready for NHL action, he needs more time in the AHL.

To whom and for what?

That is the question.

Columbus? Toronto? Just throwing out some names of teams who do not have very promising backup goalies. Although, Columbus does have Leclaire in the wings. (Is he ready to step it up?)
