CuJo sent to minors

http://www.sportsnet.ca/hockey/artic...20_162427_1200

Even though I saw it coming, it's still a little weird to actually read.

Funny how two years ago how he was absolutely worshipped by Leafs fans as nubbed the best goalie in the world. Wow.

Isn't it bad? I mean, being sent to the minors prolly wrecked his pride and if he plays crappy in the minors...who's going to want to trade for him (assuming he does get traded)?

For those of you thinking this is the end of Cujo's career, he is there on a rehab assignment and as soon as he is healthy, he will be shopped around by Lacroix.

The article clearly says it's a conditioning stint. That's not uncommon.

Shhhh!! Keep that to yourself. If Lacroix can get something for him that's better than Holland's been able to do so far.

This is hardly a normal "conditioning stint" situation though. He could be down there for quite some time.

Sorry about that, I meant shopped towards Lacroix. I apologize.

I have to think Colorado will wait on Sauve and Aebischer for a couple months. Boston has Potvin, and Dunham has looked good enough for NYR. Holland might not be able to move him as easy as people think.

You would have to assume Cujo is agreeing to it. It wouldn't be smart to jerk a guy with a $16M contract with a no trade clause around too much.

TSN sportscentre is reporting otherwise

They said it's an option the team is considering as well as a contract re-structure

Theres a limit to how many games your allowed to play for a conditioning stint...im not sure how many games though but i dont think its that many games...although being a goaltender they could delay his return by just playing him every two games (if thats possible according to the rules?)

I actually think that CuJo has now become very under rated on these boards. There was a time when he was a Leaf that he was over rated, but now it has swung to far the other way.

Yes, he makes too much money, but if money was not an issue, IMO he would be an upgrade for this season for the following teams:

Assuming he is 100% healthy.

Flyers
Islanders
Rangers
Penguins
Sabres
Bruins
Thrashers
Hurricanes
Blues
Blakhawks
Predators
Blue Jackets
Avalanche
Flames
Oilers
Canucks
Kings
Coyotes
Sharks

Note: this does not mean that he is a huge upgrade.

I agree that he may be an upgrade on those teams...HOWEVER I see maybe 5 of the teams listed there as teams that could afford him, or would be willing to afford him. And on top of that, I see maybe 3 teams that Detroit would offer him up to, and not have to worry about him coming back to haunt them in the playoffs UNTIL the finals.

What motivation would Cujo have to "restructer" his deal. He has no reason to. He has a valid contract and the Wings are BY LAW required to honor it. Of course, they can send him anywhere they want as long as it is in the structure of his deal. In fact it makes you wonder if this isn't a pressure play by them to get Cujo to loosen up for a deal. If I were him I would go wherever they wanted me to and keep on collecting that GIANT over payed ridiculous salary that the Wings mistakenly paid me. I would laugh all the way to the bank and then go out and buy my agent a gold plated golf cart for ****** Holland.

What a sham. Yet another mark on Holland's "spotless" track record

Cujo could get moved to any number of teams depending on much salary Detroit picks up or takes a high=priced player in return. It's not as bad as the Canes sending Irbe to the ECHL, they're just trying to embarass the guy, Cujo needs to get some playing time and into game shape.
