Moss=3rd string goalie, a goalie who you feel comfortable with when one of your goalie goes down with an injury and Conklin isn't ready to be a full time starter in the NHL (i hope he gets ready soon)

if Lowe can't resign salo to a pay cut (about 2 or 1.5 million) i say bye bye Salo and look at a cheap goalie to spilt time with Conklin for a year or two

cuz we all know Salo won't get anything higher than a 3rd or 4th at the deadline and with Conklin down with his broken wrist, Lowe going to ride Salo for all he's worth

that's a 3rd or 4th you otherwise wouldn't have, and you save 400K, and you are already out of the race anyways. You give Conklin a chance to start the rest of the way, and if he's still injured, then it's fun to see where Moss and Morrison/Valiquette are anyways.

Fun?

Train accidents aren't fun!

The only reason Lowe got Moss was so he could be slightly more comfortable with his backup than he was with Morrison. If they do move Salo, and they still expect to make the playoffs with Conklin, for example, they'd better find a backup better than Moss.

I think we needed a Conklin replacement in case he is out for an extended period of time. Whoever is backing Salo up will get to play some games and since we are still in "the hunt" (mathematically), then it makes sense to have someone with some experience for those games.

Not to mention that the Runners need a goalie to make the playoffs... I know the main thing is to help the NHL team, but the playoffs would be huge for the Runners, and help with the development of some of the kids down there.

I think we should bring Tommy back and pick up his option

because maybe Lowe has another hunch that flies in the face of statisical and anecdotal evidence.

Kiprusoff for a 3rd or 2nd and costing just 880K. What a nice gamble by Sutter. A 3rd if he sucks and a 2nd if he does well.

Cheers,

No way. Conks = hurt, Big Valley = hurt, Tommy and Morrison with no tenders in TO that is why he got Moss. If you trade Salo then you have Moss and Morrison as your goalies with nothing in TO. Seems obvious why he got Moss to me and it is not to trade Tommy.

Does the acquisition of Sarno allow Vancouver to trade away Henrik Sedin or Linden? Moss is a good depth goaltender but I certainly wouldn't want to be riding him for the rest of the season with Conklin injured.. though thinking of Malkin on our second line, maybe Moss should be our go-to guy!

I'm not saying Moss is a replacement at all I'm saying the added depth gives us more flexibility.

I don't think it gives us any more flexibility at this point.. trading Salo right now would leave us with a goaltending tandem of Moss/Morrison. Is anyone content with that pair?

For now sure Salo won't be around next year anyway.

does anyone know what number Moss is going to use? do you think he'll get into any games before the Alaskan Assassin returns?

Hey Cerebral, while Malkin would be neat, but improboble, I would point you to a young guy in the draft this year named Evan McGrath.

He plays in the NCAA and is a great blend of skill, size, and speed. I've been told he looks like another Daymond Langkow perhaps. Should the Oilers be closer to the #10 overall pick than the #1, he might be a guy to look at. Heck, there's a chance he falls down to the Philly pick (especially with Philly taking a bit of a stumble in the standings as of late).

Hey, Miz, are you sure you mean McGrath? Doesn't he play for Kitchener?

But, yeah, it's starting to look like he might slide pretty good. I'd certainly think about it if he's still there with Philly's pick.

By the way, there's also Drew Stafford, who seems to be a lock to go top-15. He's Barry Stafford's nephew, apparently. I like what little I've seen of him, but I wouldn't take him above a Tukonen, Wolski, or Schremp.
