to EDM: Ouellet
to WAS: Salo + Chimera (the scouts have been scouting someone. Salo's injured!)
who then turn around with...
WAS: Hahl or Skoula.
What's in it for them?
EDM: saves money on Salo and get a goaltender prospect. 22 years old, could challenge Conklin for a position as #1 goalie this year (or next).
WAS: saves money on Kolzig (his salary is $6million dollars!!!) and gets a capable keeper in Salo, plus some youth in Skoula/Hahl and Chimera.
COL: gets the goalie they desperately need to make a run for the cup AND still screws Detroit by leaving them with Cujo.
Please note that I am talking out of my butt since I have heard nothing from Colorado looking for a trade. Aebischer seems to be doing well.
i repeat: kolzig is NOT going to be traded....enough already.
And I would definitely not be content with a Conklin/Oulette tandem in net.. Conklin may have looked decent so far but he has played two extremely weak offensive teams, Calgary and Minnesota. Wait till he starts playing some of the stronger teams and gets a few more games under his belt till we start offering our starting goaltender for a 2nd rounder..
