Last day before free agency folks. Could today FINALLY be the day we resolve our goalie situation? I think it might be. Think about it, tomorrow at noon teams start to fill their needs through UFA's. How are we going to know what UFA's to target if the goalie trade is still up in the air?
In an ideal world, we would make the trade today for either at top 4 D or top 6 forward. Then focus on getting the other guy in free agency. You may recall that the Chronicle has been bantering about this for over a year now. It is time to be done with it!! Make it happen DW. This decision is the second biggest one you will have to make in shaping this franchise (the other one being, well... you know). Both choices have their pros and cons. This is why you get paid the big bucks. Part of me wants to keep Kari because he is proven. Part of me wants to trade him because he can't stay healthy. Pavs is an unknown with that scary word, "potential".
What to do, what to do... heeengh? When Moose was re-signed to that two year deal I really didn't understand it. Great guy, and goalie... but everybody knew we had this situation looming around the corner. I thought a one year deal would have been perfect. Now, with that second year, it has help create a difficult situation. Are you comfortable with Moose and Pavs as your goalie in the year that we need to impress The Czar? Had we not signed Moose to the 2 year deal, he more than likely would have moved on and the goalie duo would be Kari and Pavs.
OK, at this point I'm just rambling the same stuff we already know about. As Monty Python used to say, "GET ON WITH IT". So, this is the official trade a goalie post. Your thoughts and predictions are appreciated in the comment section. Is today the day?
