IMO, Halak will be traded and Manny will be the Price backup. Sanford will be the AHL starter and if Gainey can't trade Halak, then Manny will be the AHL starter and Sanford the AHL backup.

As much as I'd like this, I think its just a rumor theres no one else reporting it and until I see a link that isn't twitter i'll still function under the assumption that halak is backup

I thought Fernandez was a decent #1. I'm really surprised he'd be a backup,... with a 2 way deal...

And that is why this hole rumor is just plain BS. Why would you sign your backup goalie to a 2 way deal for 1 year and why would Manny, who wanted to retire after last season, even consider this exactly?

The amount of logic behind this is paper thin.

Even if you were under the assumption that this rumor is true, Halak still is the back up. All the rumor is saying is that Fernandez has been offered a contract, nothing more.

I would have offered him the same contract that Sanford was offered, so it doesn't bother me or surprise me in the least that Gainey might have done so. It also wouldn't surprise me that Fernandez would turn it down, and we'd end up with Sanford instead. It's all good.

Didn't he almost retired after severe health issues last year...

It's nice to have a backup of his quality but if he's on the LTIR he's useless.

Also we have no cap room, I don't see this happening.

I think he said good source. Sounds weird to me unless Fernandez has suddenly changed his tune because I remember him hating being a backup in the past.

Beggars can't be choosers. He is from Montreal though isn't he?

At some point, Halak will be traded either in a package for an upgrade at another position or for a draft pick. It's no secret he'd like to play somewhere where he has an opportunity to start and that won't happen in Montreal given Price's status and age. I can see Bob trading Halak as a favor as long as Bob can land a capable backup (i.e. Fernandez).

When Halak leaves this team, he will go on to have a better career then Price.

Maybe you can tell us what'll happen to our team next year and beyond that, since you seem to have some precognitive ability there.

I could ask you the same why Price will not succeed, but Halak will...please give me your insight.

Did I say anywhere in my post anything about Price? We're talking about Halak here.

Secondly, why is it that one has to suceed while the other has to fail then?

Third you didn't answer my question: tell me more about the future.

You gotta love it how when either Halak or Price gets traded, the one who leaves will end up being better.

Well its not Montreal fans, but I'm thinking by the luck of the draw, we're going to end up with a Redden-Chara deal, where we keep the better one, and the traded one becomes a 7'' mythical beast.

c'mon guys... none of us has superpowers on predicting the future.
in my opinion, both goalies are good, they have a lot of potential but i have to admit that i prefer price.

anyway if bob sign fernandez, it means that he'll make a transaction.
one name comes to my mind: FROLOV lol..
