the leafs and rangers have added late bids to the CUJO sweepstakes

He's not going to the Rangers- Lundqvist is Lundqvist, Valiquette has been solid as a backup should be, or better. They have Montoya in the minors, and he is NHL-ready. None of their goalies have injury histories, and Lundqvist has had zero problems shouldering the load of 70-75 games.

I could name 10 staring goaltenders who are all lesser goaltenders than Cujo.

There should be plenty of room for a goalie like him.

No way CuJo signs with San Jose. There needs are secondary scoring (sound familiar?) so adding CuJo is sort've a lateral move for them. They are no closer to winning a Cup with CuJo on the team than they are without him. Nabokov is an elite goalie and will still be the undisputed #1 in SJ even if CuJo was to sign there. For that reason, I don't see Joseph being signed in SJ. Calgary is a better possibility since Kiprusoff, though solid lately, still isn't playing above a .900 SV% but the Flames have been on a roll lately and are seeing improvements from Miikka. Over the last 5 games he's gone 4-1 with a .919 SV%. No way they mess with Kiprusoff's head by bringing in Curtis.

My picks for CuJo's services

Carolina - Ward is not the same goalie as a few seasons back for whatever reason and could use some mentoring.

Pittsburgh - When Conklin comes back down to Earth, that is, if he does.



Don Cherry said last night Toronto was getting CuJo. Not sure how much weight that carries.

Allright.... IMO Cujo is better than:

Mason (or Ellis) - San Jose
Garon (or Roloson) - Edmonton
Toskala - Toronto
whoever is starting - LA
Budaj - Avalanche
Fleury / Conklin / Thibault - Pittsburgh
Holmqvist - Tampa

I went to buy some camouflage pants the other day but I couldn't find any.

Do you mean Mason (or Ellis) in Nashville maybe?
When nothing is going right, go left.

Based on play this season, Cujo would have a good chance to start on:
Atlanta, Calgary, Carolina, Colorado, Dallas, Edmonton, Los Angeles, Nashville, Pittsburgh, Tampa Bay, Toronto, Washington

San Jose has 2 big weaknesses that will doom them in the playoffs again:

1. Coaching/character/maturity whatever you want to call it. The symptons are blowing leads in the playoffs repeatedly, and having the worst home record in the league.

2. No back-up goaltender or not having any faith in their backups. The symptom is that Nabokov plays every single game. He will be worn out by March. - ala Brodeur and Nabokov, though good is not in the same league as Marty.

Interestingly poor coaching has something to do with #2. What coach in his right mind would start the same goaltender every single game. This is just stupidity. You'd think that Wilson would at least put in the back-up against some of the weaker teams.

In summary, San Jose NEEDS Cujo. Of course they won't go after him because the Wilson twins are not that smart.

Do or do not. There is no try

I admit it. I'm bummed about this. I was sort of daydreaming about Cujo going to the Pens and helping them to make a more serious playoff run than last year. On days when I was really feeling separated from reality, I may have imagined the glory of a Wings/Pens, Hasek/Cujo final.

update: 1 year 1.5 mil with the Flamesdetails
I make 1 or 2 posts a week tops. Sometimes they're gold, sometimes they're crap, but the end weight is the same.

So he has a contract that's a few months long for a team that, at best, might maaaaaybe have a shot at the cup. Is this just an attempt to stay on the radar for a possible job next year?
