J-S Aubin?

With Fleury signing, the Pens have placed him on waivers. Is he worth putting a claim on???

The Oilers have a lot of confidence in Conklin. Valiquette/Martin/Madden or whoever in Toronto is fine. No goaltending needs on this club.

No for the Oilers but I would think Florida might.

Theres a vast difference between quality and quantity. I know Aubin has proven SQUAT at the NHL level but Conklin doesnt seem to be the kind of guy that we can use to give Salo 20+ games off a year. We NEED Tommy to be well rested for the playoffs this year

I have to say when i heard about aubin being waived i thought about picking him up. But wouldnt that mean a)FLA would get a crack at him first (theyre a worse team) b)we'd have to waive one of our goalies? besides, i think aubin makes too much cash for what the oilers need of him.


Can somebody please tell me why we let Juice go?

Anyone who saw Conklin play last year can attest to how good he is, and that he deserves a shot. I wouldn't rate JS Aubin much higher than Conklin, nor would I trust him to give Salo 20+ games off more than Conklin.

Florida doesn't need him. They have Shields and Luongo, hence the reason that they let Valiquette go on waivers.

The Oilers let Juice go because they were going to have to lose either Markkanen or Conklin (or they felt they would). It also comes down to the fact that Conklin makes about $300k less a season.

While Aubin probably isn't (Well, certainly isn't) the best goalie in the world, he does have a 20 win season under his belt (and I think he might have been above .500 that year as well). Not awe inspiring by any means, but I would say that he isn't completely unproven.

Also because his qualifying offer had to be about $850,000, which was more than double his salary last year, and more than twice Conklin's if I'm not mistaken.
