This. I'm sure if MacT found a reasonable deal, it would have been done by now. He's not going to trade Yakupov for Reimer, and that may be the only BS he is being offered right now.
The sad part it, patience is unfortunately required here. GM's are looking at a rookie GM, who is DESPERATE for a goaltender, and they see a recent 1st overall pick with 40 goal potential that is struggling and trying to see what they can get away with.
Dubnyk hurt, Labarbra sucks, starting a AHL goalie against a strong team. What else does MacT need in order to trade for a goalie..
Probably someone willing to trade him a goalie....For everyone who is *****ing about goaltending around here... I recall a majority of posters on here and media in the city stating goaltending was solid and the least of our problems at the end of last season. At least MacT attempted to get a goalie in the offseason.
The answer is waiting in Anaheim we just have to wait for Anaheim to be ready to move one of them, till then we cross our fingers and hope Dubnyk can pull us through.
I'm weary about hinging our hopes on Anaheim, they really don't like trading inside their division. Apparently some GM's in the west didn't even know Ryan was available until the trade went down with the Sens.
