Cujo's hint to Colorado?

I just wanted your take on something that I noticed in the Detroit vs. Nashville game. Cujo not only had Koho pads [which in itself is odd since he has a contract for another year with Bauer], but the colors of his leg pads were Black, white, and... maroon. Not red. (Obviously his other pads are red and white, but the leg pads are most known for being the ones who need breaking in moreso than the gloves.) Could this be a hint that he wants to go to Colorado? Or that Colorado has inquired into his services?

Why else would he get them in maroon and not red?




The maroon is in the tiny stripe between the black and the white. Interesting, eh?

Are the Avs even interested ? They could have picked him up for free not too long ago.

It means that either :

1) avs have absolutely no interest in Cujo and want to give the chance to Sauve and/or Abby or just want to trade for another goalie later this season.
2) avs aren't ready to pay 8M for Cujo
3) avs wanted to wait before Cujo was healthy or are weighting their options until later this season.

Now if it's option 2) and 3) a deal could be made. But are the wings willing to eat a part of Cujo's salary to help their arch rivals ? I somehow doubt it.

From the start I thought Cujo was bound to end up with the avs. But I now doubt it.

With the surprising play of Potvin I don't see the bruins as takers either.

That leaves very few options for the wings.

Seriously though, those have to be the biggest pads I have ever seen.
I have a picture of Roman Turek when he was here in St. Louis and his pads (no joking) went up to his chin when he sat down for the team picture. All you see are these leg pads and a little curly head sticking out the top.

Seriously, though, can anyone explain the maroon? NHL goalies get their pads the way THEY want them.. which means he purposely got maroon in there. Which begs for us to think of reasons why. Avs.. Canucks.. Phoenix (almost matches).

As for a previous post to this topic, if need be, I'm absolutely sure Cujo would take a reduced salary to be traded to Colorado.

Anyone else?

Does Grand Rapids explain the Maroon? It explains the 580s (you must wear Koho 580s in AHL, on most teams).

He apparently wanted the option year guarenteed to go to Boston ... I doubt he'll negotiate a cut to go anywhere ...

I doubt Grand Rapids has anything to do with the maroon because he knew he would just be there for one game, two at the most.. and it takes even NHL goalies at least a week to two weeks to get new pads in. Furthermore, Cujo likes to break his pads in for lengthy periods of time... although they do look incredibly new. While it would explain the Koho 580's (which are the best pads, if you ask me), he still wore his Bauer glove.
As for Boston.. who wouldn't want their full contract to play in Boston? I wouldn't want to play in Boston. Potvin did only because they were the only one's willing to give him a contract. If I were Cujo, I'd take a hell of a cut to play in Colorado. Great town, great fan-base, and it's an awesome team (they'll get better once everyone meshes in with eachother).

Maybe his pads were damaged, lost, otherwise unavailable to him and he borrowed Lamothe's pads (explaining the coloration and discrepency between gloves/pads).... would also explain the huge pads, as Lamothe has a couple inches on him in heigth, no?

Maybe the Wings were just being really cheap and didnt supply him with his more expensive pads and thats what they gave him to play. It'd make him feel unwelcome and more willing to negotiate a buyout.

Why would you wish that ? Cloutier does a good enough job for a 1/4 of the price.

Never happen.

It was brought up on another board I am on, this was the explination...

The inside story is that Cujo was getting a custom pair of Koho pads broken in which were copy's of Ryan Miller's. When he was down in Grand Rapids last week, he tried Maroth's Koho pads and loved them. He had Koho make copy's of Maroth's. They sit higher on his skates and looks bigger than his old Bauer's. He still has his contract w/ Bauer but said all he wanted was to feel comfortable and stop pucks. So he was wearing a more neutral black and white set of Koho's last night.

I think he looks better with Grand Rapids then he does with the Wings (from a looking cool standpoint)....
