I doubt he misses more than two additional games (beyond the fifty-ish minutes he missed last night). He tweaked a muscle in warm-ups, or something mundane like that. It's not a big deal.

Non-issue.

Close thread.

Pretty sure Edmonton would trade Khabibulin for a washing machine if Pheonix called for his services

No they would not because the Washing machine is not washed up unlike Kaby

So you don't think PHX should trade for Luongo?

You've already got one ex-Stars goalie, build a collection.

That, and we wouldn't want a slightly above-average but overrated goalie for 10 years when the player who justifiably deserves a 10 year deal is OEL.

Bernier for Yandle, adjusted with pieces for the right fit.

What? Let me think about it....No thanks...How about Stone for Bernier plus pieces? Neither start, Kings need D, both are young and have potential?

You could put a traffic cone in and that coach would give it great numbers.

I just thought it was be interesting to see what pieces it would take to make the deal, don't think on it too hard.

Really? Because among coyotes fans LaBarbera has the nickname LOLbarbera. 9 out of 10 times he's terrible.

I would much rather keep Bishop in Ottawa.

However, a trade of Bishop, Regin and DaCosta for Yandle could be in the interest of both teams.

Even if he's day-to-day, I suspect Phoenix will just stick with LaBarbera and call up either Chad Johnson (Who'll probably turn into the next Mike Smith with Sean Burke's coaching!) or Mark Visentin to fill in as the back-up.
Obviously looks like a non-issue, and hopefully Smith's back in soon.

Even if something were to happen, the Coyote depth in goal is actually quite good and designed to fit the system. It's funny how many people have stated in this thread something to the effect that anyone could play goal for the Yotes. But if you look all the way down to the ECHL level, all of the goalies are big guys that Burke can work with. And all 6 of them have been playing pretty well.

I think for both defense and goal, if something were to happen to a key player, the Coyotes would probably just solve it internally. The forward depth is clearly the weakest and least reliable, but the system is designed to cover the weakness.

In a fantasy land where the Yotes felt they needed to snag someone to fill-in for the rest of the year, or whatever, I'd probably want Steve Mason. Big goalie, badly needs a change of scenery, would come pretty cheap, but could turn it around in the Phoenix system and regain some value. Even though Visentin's only 20, he's basically platooning with Johnson in the AHL, so he's got another season at minimum before he'll get a long look to make the big club. Reclamation projects are a Yotes specialty, so maybe turning around a guy like Mason's career could happen before the young goalies make the jump. After all, Maloney got two 3rd round picks for the negotiating rights to Bryzgalov. Maybe he could make hay on Mason2.0

Coyotes have called up Chad Johnson. Say Mike Smith has a minor issue that they caught early and hope isn't a long-term issue.
