I say Turco goes to SJ and Nabby to Dallas.


Eww! I think that would be weird seeing that. Turco would f*ck the Sharks over lol. No way they sign him. I don't think they'll promote Greiss (spelling) to starting goalie so I am curious to see who they sign. I also don't think they will try to get Thomas either.

I actually think they could sign Ellis and rotate him with Greiss. Greiss obviously has potential so maybe they don't want to waste it by getting a clear starter with big cash.

Actually you know what? I am all for it lol. Turco to San Jose! Bring down the Sharks!!!!! As far as Nabby to Dallas, please no! Head on east to Philadelphia! :thumbup:

Yeah that makes sense. I was trying to think of the goalies that could become possible free agent targets, or goalies that are up for trade. That wouldn't be a bad move for the Sharks at all now that you mention it.

Not at all shocked. I had said that he'd be gone if the Sharks flamed out in the first round...but I think their collapse in the WCF was possibly more embarrassing, especially considering the way they dismantled us so handily. It'll be interesting to see Nabby in the East (and I'm certain that's where he'll go).

So.. Instead of improving their back up goalie situation and getting someone that can play a few games each year instead of making your starting all-star caliber goalie start 70 games.. you just replace the all star goalie? That seems like twisted logic.. but hey, maybe they know something we dont.. Greiss for Vezina 2011!? :ph34r:

I wonder if Washington will be in the market for a goalie or if they'll stay with Varlamov as the starter. They better win a Cup soon, because they can't keep a core that talented together for too long and surround them with talent.

Keep in mind that Chris Mason had a pretty good year last year too and with Halak going there, Mason being a UFA and Conklin still being under contract for another year, that's another started to throw into the pool...

This is a good year for a team if they want a starting goalie - they'll probably be able to get an established starter and on the cheap at that...

I say Turco goes to SJ and Nabby to Dallas.

hey, why not, that actually happened in my NHL 10 dynasty :ph34r:

Probably a long shot but what ive heard is SJ has been calling about Tim Thomas

ive heard to could go

To SJ: Tim Thomas,and a pick or 2 depending on how high

To BOS: Setoguchi


the other Phill has called to

and rumor is close to the same

To PHI: Tim Thomas,Pick or Prospect

To BOS: Jeff Carter


There's no way Philly would give Carter up for a 36 year old, $5,000,000 Thomas. The Bruins need to dump his salary and everyone knows it.

Emery?

I hope he's not intending to use his last playoff series as part of his negotiating strategy.

I'm sure he's not, but I'm sure teams that are interested in him will...

I was just reading that they are pretty high on Neuvirth and Holtby. Both are doing well in the AHL, it's just a question of when they'll be ready. I could see them going with Varlamov and getting someone on a one-year contract like we did with Conks when they wanted to give Jimmy more time.

Money on the board:  Current total: 0

$1 for a goal by any current Wing after whom I have named a hamster.  An additional $5 for a series-clinching goal scored by any current Wing after whom I have named a hamster. $5 if the other team fails to score against a current Wing goalie after whom I have named a hamster.

Hamsters I have had:  (current Wings highlighted)

With the overflow of starters available, one of them may not have a choice but to take a one year deal, if they want to maximize their earning potential - Maybe Turco to Wash on a 1 or 2 year deal?

Sounds reasonable.

Is it just me, or are there a lot of goalies floating around this year? I honestly only started paying attention to the financial end of things (contracts, caps, etc.) when I started hanging around here.

Wow, if he can get on a team that doesn't require him to start 70 games a year, maybe he can show why he's so damn good and not be burnt out in the playoffs.


My thoughts exactly. This will be better for Nabby.

Just cause you look like the gimp don't mean you play like the gimp!
