Just a backup if Giguere fails apart, Berra is ufa in the summer.

Why; I don't understand the trade from either party's POV.

A trade that makes absolutely no sense for either team.

What's that to do with anything? Surely you are not saying that every goaltender who ever gets traded must therefore be worse than Reimer?

Giguere has looked shaky since the end ofNovember.

Guessing Giguere must have injury issues, probably with his back again. Just a goalie with some experience if he goes down.

I would take him over Giguere now, jiggy has looked inconsistent

No. Ramo is the starter when healthy. Berra has been starting lately because Ramo is hurt.

Ramo is comparable to Reimer. Berra is not as good. He's incredibly athletic, but his positioning in the net is pretty bad.

For now I guess this means Ortio is the Flames starter.... He's made all of 1 NHL start in his career.

While I like the idea of the Flames trading a player for a pick I'm not sure why they'd trade a goalie right now without a replacement. Are they trading for someone else? Is there someone they're going to sign or recall? Is Ortio going to stay?

Meh, Berra will never be a starter in the NHL, and Ramo is better. Neither guy will be Calgary's starter of the future. Guess they wanted to keep Ortio up and give him a look.

I don't really get this. We got good goalies in the AHL in Pickard/Aitto so this doesn't really make any sense...

I guess carrying three goalies is the thing to do in the Central Division? Hope it works out for Colorado and Dallas.

Maybe they got Brodeur or Halak?

Can he play defense? Good job Patrick and Joe. Way to address the issues at hand.

Ramo is better. Honestly, Berra is backup-level at best (and I have my doubts he's even much good as a backup). He loses his net so hard you'd think he was actively trying to avoid it, and overcommits constantly. I'm glad the Flames a) got rid of him, and b) actually got something for him.
