I have a better idea. Let's compare apples to apples. Who's been the better goaltender over the last 3 years (using the goaltenders involved in this deal)? Theodore? Nope. Theodore has averaged .902 SV% over the last three years and a 2.87 GAA. Aebischer? .913 SV% over the last 3 years and a 2.50 GAA.

Aebischer has struggled this season. He's been horrible inconsistent all year long. Doesn't it tell you something that the Avs were willing to trade him away for a goaltender who is currently injured, playing downright dreadful hockey this season, and has a horrible contract?
On the contrary. Let me use your wording, but reverse teams and goaltenders. K?

Let me clarify why this deal works. Habs free cap room. They get a goaltender who has similar stats (actually better stats) over the last 3 years for a fraction of the cost. And, to top it all off Habs get a goaltender who is NOT injured. That is a fact.

Thanks
Yeah, big deal...so did Patrick Lalime at one point in his career.

That's hardly a fair assessment. Do you really think Auld would fetch 27 wins with Montreal? Nope. Too many other variables.

And thank you!

That's too much for an UFA. We could sign him over the summer for nothing.

I would ask for either George Kingston back in that deal or switch first round picks this summer

I don't see what you are debating here. I was comparing Aebischer to Auld, not to Theodore. As for the trade, I think it's a good one for the Habs because they got a serviceable player and dumped a horrendous contract.

Your post indicated (indirectly) that Montreal got screwed in the deal and were basically suckered into making that deal with the Avs. I've read that post 3 more times. Nope, can't see any clues of it not being a debatable post.

However, I've been wrong once before
