1. why does atlanta need cujo? they already have 3 NHL quality goalies, and personally, i'd MUCH rather have nurminen. besides, a 1st\2nd is WAY too much for CUJO. the wings had better take what they can get, at this point.
2. anaheim gets slaughtered. salo is past his prime\likes to get hurt, lately...giguere is young and just coming into what could be a brilliant career. carney > comrie, IMO. look at anaheim before carney came back from injury. just doesn't make sense. the other two deals are reasonable, i guess...if a little bit nonsensical.
Giggy would just cost too jmuch, would almost be better just to re-sign Comrie for what he wants
and Carney, well I know he was great last year and was the ducks anchor on defense, i would never think the ducks would ever trade him
NYI acquires: Boucher
Phoenix acquires: Parrish
I don't see how thats works when they have almost the same salary
I don't see any of these deals happening. There isn't much demand out there for goalies.
Leafs would be lucky to get anything for Kidd. He's making over a million dollars a year and he's a backup at best.
Boucher makes 2 million and isn't even remotely the same goalie during Philly's conference final run a few years back.
Cujo for a first? Hehe, Wadell isn't stupid. Wings won't get much for Cujo, they would be lucky to get anything really. Perhaps, a team might ask at the trade deadline because (A) most of this year's salary would have been paid and (B) wings have been rumoured to pick next year's contract should there be hockey next year.
Salo has played terrible so bad that Conklin has pretty much taken over goalie duties. Giguere has played bad as well but the Ducks aren't going to move him.
nurminen is playing great i thought in atlanta, and if not they could go back to dafoe and call up lehtonen and give him a shot, i dont think atl would bother with cujo, and they dont really want to add much salary anyway
Right now the goalie market isn't great. Almost every team already has a #1, a #2 they're comfortable with, and an obligatory goalie of the future.
Chicago would/should be in the market for a goalie to help salvage this season.
Things will pick up once a playoff contending team loses their #1 for a few weeks for some injury. I'm trying to think off the top of my head which teams have a subpar backup, cuz once the trade deadline comes around, a team might like to pick up a more solid backup to play 3 or 4 more games.
Devils did that a few years ago trading Chris Terreri and a 9th rounder (?) for John Vanbiesbrouck, knowing Beezer would play 2/3 games max. But they felt those 4-6 points would be very important in the standings, and they knew Beezer was an upgrade over Terreri.
But goalies won't fetch much right now. Hurme got a 3rd, Kiprusoff got a conditional 2nd two drafts from now.
