i'd like to package Foligno and a second rounder for Lundqvist and then sign Vokoun as backup. (somewhat realistic)

buuut... I guess i could live with Anderson for 2yr/3.5m.

I wouldn't be surprised either if Anderson signs an extenson after that & eventually is the backup to Lehner. I could see Anderson playing the rest of his career here in Ottawa.
This would be the best scenario (hopefully a few less dollars). Give Lehner a year or even 2 in Bingo. If Mcelhinney plays well as a backup he could be resigned another year. If not they can find someone else to backup for less than $1M until Lehner is ready. I'm not sure the Sens would want to pay Anderson top dollars if Lehner surpassed him but that question is probably still 2-3 years away.

Please don't resign Leclaire. His goal tending might be ok but Leclaire's extensive and frequent injuries cause all kinds of problems in the goalie rotation. While injuries can happen to anyone with Leclaire it's a guarantee and there is no sense messing with Bingo's goalies all the time.

I voted for the 1st option accidentally (if the OP cares). Meant to vote for the 2nd of course.

Just for the sake of argument:
- Vokoun and Bryzgalov didn't want to sign here. Otherwise I hope everyone would want them.
- The trade return for Bernier and Schneider would both be a 2nd rounder, Patty Wiercioch and Nick Foligno.
Hmmm, I doubt young goalies are worth that, but I wouldn't do it anyway. No way.

A month before Anderson become a Sen a buddy of mine said we should go after him during the UFA period.

I pretty much blasted him, and said I was sick of getting these "1B" type goalies.
My 1st option would have been going after Vokoun, Bryz, then who knows.

But Anderson is making me a believer...so far.
Usually big body goalies like him are all about position, but he actually goes for pucks.
I'd very happy to lock him up for 2-3 years.

Are trading for Schneider or Bernier or Elliott realistic options?

a) i think trading for shnieder or bernier is unrealistic.
b) harding is a possibility, but he hasnt really proved anything up till now.
c) lehner as our starter next year would be a disaster.
d) the likelyhood of vokoun or bryz signing with ottawa is slim to none.


that leaves me with the conclusion that anderson is our best option. Ideally, 2 years, which should be enough for lehner to develop, but if the only way to sign him is to give him a 3-year contract, i'm fine with that. I'd rather not suck *** next year again.

It's not impossible, especially not Schneider that can't really do anything more behind Luongo than put up a similar season with 20-30 games next year, and it's not like that's gonna boost his value that much more.

Bernier is a different story though, because Quick isn't as definite long-term in net as Luongo is in Vancouver.

Elliott was put in as a joke. I thought that was obvious.

To those saying the return for Schneider/Bernier was too high/too low, I just put something in there so there wouldn't be a thread about debating the variables in the trade instead of the actual goalie preference. Halak did what they did plus a good Olympics and a terrific playoff run and garnered a better prospect but not that much more.

A buddy of mine was saying Anderson's a career back-up... the day we acquired him.
I told him off of course. I've been suggesting Anderson or Harding since the beginning of the season.

As long as there is no NTC or NMC involved- I'd be alright with signing Anderson to a 4-year deal in the vicinity of $3.5M per.

If Lehner develops faster than anticipated we can always flip Anderson to a contender for a nice return (think of a team like TB this year). If Lehner takes longer, we've got Anderson.

Anderson isn't staying here for less than years (will prolly take 4).

People are really really overly optmistic that Lehner will be ready in 2 years.

Thank you, I dont understand everyones rush to get Lehner in the net I think Anderson for 4 years at 12 million would be perfect.

Tony Montana is that you?

If Anderson doesn't resign then trade for Schneider or Bernier and hope for a miracle.

I can't think of any other team that would give him a 3 yr deal. Most teams are set in their goaltending. I don't think there will be many teams clamoring for his services. I figure he's worth somewhere between 2.5 - 3.5 on a two year deal.

Yes. I don't even think we should count on Lehner becoming a starter. We'll have to wait and see, but we can't build the next decade around the hope that he'll be a solid starter one day.

Are you saying Craig Anderson is a better goalie than Schneider or Bernier?

That sentiment kind of reminds me of Leclaire......
