Should the Devils go after Khabibulin?

.... if Weekes falters as a #1?

Do they have the cap room? If so I think the Hawks would even have to give a prospect along with Khabi if they really want to get him off their hands.

They don't have enough cap room. Even with Brodeur on IR until February they only have around 2.7M.

No. Even if Weekes doesn't hold up. Someone mentioned it before, but it would be smarter to get an other average goalie and have them platoon. Khabby and his contract is not in line with the Devils menality. And even though Khabby has been good so far, what says he keeps it up once he moves?

Brodeur - 5.2 Cap hit
Khabiboulin - 6.75 Cap hit

Devils - .500 Cap space

then they should call up Bettman an negotiate a new salary cap number in '06.

I think sticking with Weekes makes the most sense.

No they shouldn't. They don't have the cap room for it for one.

I don't wanna get into an argument about the salary cap because I'm not knowledgable enough to fully understand every detail. But, 2 days ago Lou Lamoriello was asked about acquiring a goalie and he said that wouldn't eventhough the Devils around 3 million in cap space. That's without having Brodeur on LTIR.

If NJ did acquire him, they would have the option of flipping him at the trade deadline and getting more than they gave Chicago for him. They would also have the option to keep him if Brodeur took longer than expected to recover. It doesn't seem like a bad move to me.

I think Fernadez would be better because when Brouder comes back you can keep Fernandez as your back-up as opposed to then having Bulin stuck as your back-up making obscene amounts of money

The cap hit for Khabibiulin is too significant. Even if it was only part of the salary, I believe Brodeur is scheduled to be back at some point this year. I think Roloson would be a good temporary fit with the Devils. I'm not sure Weekes can get it done over the long haul, but we will see.

From what I understand, this is how it works:

From NHLSCAP.com, the Devils are about 2.1M under the cap. Brodeur has a cap hit of Brodeur - 5.2M. If they put him on LTIR, the Devils could spend over the cap by the amount of the difference between his salary and the amount remaining under the cap (5.2 - 2.1 = 3.1M) during the year if they need. In any case, the team could replace Brodeur with a player up to and including his salary. Khabibulin and his 6.75 Cap hit exceed that salary. The only way it works is if the Devils can also use cap amounts of its other LTIR players (Rolston and Holik) to accomodate that (I'm not sure if they could). And whenever one of those players came back, the Devils would have to go back into cap compliance and get rid of the excess salary (6.75 - 5.2 = 1.55).

If Chicago packages Barker with Khabibulin as incentive to take on that contract, then maybe we can talk

But realistically, not interested.

Ok thanks. I knew how the LTIR worked.

I thought the Devils were closer to 3 mill under the cap but maybe when Holik, Rolston, Martin, and Greene come back some younger guys will get sent back down and it will be closer to 3 mill under the cap.

Fernandez, Gerber or Roloson would be the likely choices.

Sorry Hawks fans - Lou isn't going to let Tallon off the hook for over $12 million tied up in goaltenders.

I always hate this kind of reply. Do you really think that NHL GM's are so childish as to decide whether they are going to make a trade based on letting some other GM squirm on the hook?

If Lou thought it would improve his team and was worth the cost, he would make an offer for Khabibulin. Just because you go out of your way to give your little brother a wedgie doesn't mean that's how GM's think.

Devils cannot in any way shape or form take Khabby at all unless they were to move out a 6.7M to another team so tell me why exactly they would do this?

So far Weekes won them A game lets just see how he can do. Maybe they won't need to trade at all.
