Curtis Joseph?

I think CuJo as the 5th winningest goalie in All time NHL history would be a nice goltending addition. With a good team, he can be a dedicated goalie, and also a very good goalie.

I wouldnt mind adding him, but unless we get rid of Denis, we dont need him. I think theyll give Denis one last chance to impress at camp.

what a bad idea.

Cujo has been very good in the NHL.. has racked up impressive stats, and man, any team would have wanted him back in the days when he was stealing series (with the blues notably), but for the Bolts right now? NO! are you crazy? why?

Denis is as good right now IMO. Just keep Denis, if you go for a goalie, go for a young one or someone who's not 40.

Joseph is done.

I dont know, I thought Burke was a good back up at 39, when he played for us

Stick with Denis and Holmqvist, if Ramo outplays either in TC then let him battle it out to start.

Is this Curtis Joseph thread day on HF? There's another post like this on the Rangers board.

No thanks. We already have one overpaid goalie, no need to bring in another one.

I think we're stuck with the current goalie situation for another year. With Homer/Denis/Ramo, there's no room for another goalie unless someone takes Denis off of Feaster's hands which just isn't going to happen. Cujo would be a good fit if Ramo was ready to take the reigns and the team needed an experienced backup without Denis/Homer on the roster. However, Ramo isn't ready to be a #1 in the league and Denis/Homer are on the payroll.

I don't think it is a crazy idea at all. Goalies can play at an elite level at an older age than other players (Bower, Hasek, et al). Cujo stays in great shape and can win games on his own. Put him on that team with their offensive capabilities and you have a better team IMO. Plus he can probably be had for a reasonable price.

that's what I'd do. You guys don't need a fourth goalie...

It's not a crazy or bad idea, just at this point an unreasonable one. The Lightning are close to their budget with Craig left to sign to fill out the roster. And with 2 NHL goalies and one (according to Lightning scouts) ready to make the jump to the NHL in Ramo, the Lightning don't have room for Cujo. If by some miracle Feaster can trade Denis, I think it'd be great to bring Cujo in. But there isn't a roster spot or the money available to bring Cujo in right now. My memory is a little fuzzy, but I think the Lightning had an opportunity to bring Cujo in after the lockout ended but Feaster/Torts didn't like something about him.

Why does every jackass in this forum want to sign old, (now) unreliable players that we don't need?

Denis/Holmqvist will be very good this season. No need to throw another goalie into the mix.
