I'll give you him, but the other two are AHL backstops, and I would hope Pittsburgh doesn't have them in line as "future NHLers".

Also, Pitts has Murray who looks like a good prospect.

IMO that would be a bad deal for the wild because their style is much like the pens. Also, their D isn't any any better than the pens either. MAF needs a good D in front of him.

Maybe they would. I think the Pens would rather use the newly created space to resign Letang. Backstrom could probably get at least a 3 year, 4M per deal.

Bernier's been rumored to Minnesota. Perhaps Minnesota acquires Bernier and flips him for Fleury? Perhaps Minnesota's under the impression their chances at Bernier aren't good and have focused instead now on Fleury. I could see them moving a Granlund or Coyle and picks for something like that.

I'd be surprised if they moved Coyle or Granlund for Fleury.

No way the wild do this, they have a lot of depth at goal. They just need a stop gap for a year or two. Backstrom re-signs at the cost of zero prospects.

I don't know. I don't see Backstrom, or the guys immediately behind him in the system, being championship quality goaltending.

My thoughts are...Backstrom's aging. With the quality of the rest of the players on their roster at present...they're going to want to win sooner rather than later.

But...if you're a Minnesota fan...the natural response is "You're wrong." I get it.

I'd rather sign Bäckström than trade one of our best prospects for MAF or Bernier.
Yes, Bäckström's aging, but we still have Kuemper and Gustafsson coming up. I could see Kuemper being 100% NHL ready in a few seasons (=when Bäcks retires).

If they're desperate for a starter, which there are a few teams in that position, then sure. In normal circumstances people aren't going to want any part of him. He's taken a severe fall from grace to the point where some Pens fans are willing to just dump him completely.

I just said only a few teams. Obviously teams with starters or without the cap space aren't going to want him.

Heatley would most definitely not be going to the Pens. Heatley would be good for a team that doesn't spend to the cap who need offence. His actual salary is 5 million which is the number teams like the Preds, Panthers, Islanders will care about.

I don't want Fleury leaving Pitt, the longer he is there, the longer that Pitt has a glaring weakness come playoff time.

Fleury has literally been putting goals in on himself with regularity for two playoffs now.

We didn't play any differently with Vokoun. Why are his numbers so much better?

No, actually Fleury is a pretty good regular season goalie. The yuks only start when the playoffs roll around.

That is the one thing I might not be able to answer. Maybe he's used to odd man rushes and facing a lot of quality shots from playing on some bad Predators and Panthers teams for basically his whole career. Or maybe that's where the 'experience' comes into play. Maybe a little of both, however that doesn't change the fact that nobody has a problem with Fleury during the regular season, but only in the playoffs when DB starts getting out coached left and right to the point of giving up two SH goals in the same game, to his star studded team scoring two, TWO goals in a four game ECF matchup.

Why are Crosby and Malkin not being run out of town for combining for 0 points in that series?

If you all want to discuss why Vokoun puts up better numbers than Fleury take it to another part of the forum. This forum is for discussing possible trades and FA signings, not getting into the reasoning behind a fan base's attitude towards different players or a team's performance in the playoffs.

Could be a good gamble for Minny. Only 2 years left on that contract, during which time MAF has to regain his form. Maybe he got too complacent in Pittsburgh. It seemed like he had a country club attitude on the HBO series "Road to the Winter Classic"

Kind of OT but I just love how there is a tipping point in player likeability on HF. Just a few months ago MAF's fans would defend him by throwing up pics of him holding the cup and pumping up his value, now he's universally despised.

Hartzell will likely not be ready to make the jump to the NHL next season. Can't rush goalie prospects. He'd be better off in WB/S for the season to develop. Thiessen is a UFA (or RFA) I believe, and I don't think the Penguins keep him around either way. He is hardly a viable NHL option at this point. Zatkoff is interesting and has the chance, but he is the AHL version of Fleury come playoff time. I wouldn't feel comfortable with any of these guys at the moment.
