Seems reasonable, Conks was pretty good when he was here but has had a bit of a rough season.. I can think of a couple other goalies I would rather see here but I wouldn't complain if we got him.

They would have to move a player to make room.
That said, if they moved Osgood, I approve also.
Rather keep Osgood, let him retire and replace him next year.

Are we sure we'd have to get rid of someone? That was never talked about when Nabakov was going to join the team. If we could roll with three goalies with Nabakov we could do it with Conklin. Honestly, Osgood is not the one I'm worried about. As long as his injury doesn't hamper him he should be able to take over starting duties from Howard, who in my mind has played himself out of it except for the fact that we don't have a real starter to replace him with. I'm not sure Conklin would solve that, either, but at least it'd give the team another weapon to use to keep opponents off balance.

I loved Conks when he was here. Conklin was as solid as a rock for us, I was very confident when he was in net and very disappointed when we let him go.

Giguere, Jean-Sebastien $6,000,000 2011 (UFA) CAP HIT too large
Vokoun, Tomas » G $5,700,000 2011 (UFA) CAP HIT too large
Bryzgalov, Ilya » $4,250,000 2011 (UFA) Phoenix won't let him go, or I'd say make it work.
Leclaire, Pascal » $3,800,000 2011 (UFA) Not playing well and CAP HIT too large
Roloson, Dwayne » $2,500,000 2011 (UFA) TBL won't let him go.
Smith, Mike » G $2,200,000 2011 (UFA) We could have had him if we were interested
Niemi, Antti » G $2,000,000 2011 (UFA) No interest
Anderson, Craig » $1,812,500 2011 (UFA) Colorado won't let him go
Hedberg, Johan » $1,500,000 2011 (UFA) NJD probably won't let him go otherwise an option
Turco, Marty » G $1,300,000 2011 (UFA) No interest and Hawks won't let him go.
Conklin, Ty » G $1,300,000 2011 (UFA) Most Viable option
Budaj, Peter » G $1,250,000 2011 (UFA) Colorado won't let him go
Garon, Mathieu » $1,200,000 2011 (UFA) He's an option in Columbus will trade
Harding, Josh » G $1,200,000 2011 (UFA) Minnesota won't let him go
Theodore, Jose » $1,100,000 2011 (UFA) Another viable option
Auld, Alex » G $1,000,000 2011 (UFA) Another viable option
Labarbera, Jason » $1,000,000 2011 (UFA) Another viable option

Boucher, Brian » $925,000 2011 (UFA) Philly won't let him go.


As you can see the goalie market is pretty thin in terms of a clearcut upgrade.

What kind of color is red? Red is a warning, a declaration, a color that says I'm ready to do what it takes. Red is focused and driven because red doesn't like second place. So what kind of color is red? Their kind.

I'd like to see Conklin come back! And I agree that there is no reason to let someone go - Osgood hasn't reached retirement stage yet and Jimmy needs as much support as possible.

I would take Alex Auld ninety percent of the time given the choice of these four. Then eight percent would be Jose Theodore, hoping he can somehow recapture his elite-level play at a bargain-basement price. Finally, two percent would be Conklin, who has proven two things at the NHL level. First, he is a solid backup goaltender. Second, he will only ever be a solid backup goaltender. And finally, no thank you to Jason Labarbera.

Conklin is on waivers today...if Osgood doesnt think he will be ready, this might be the perfect time to pick up Conks
be about it!

Definitely, the wings have only ~500k in space and Conks makes 1.3
Nabs signed on minimum to make that number work.
"It is a lot easier to be an ******* to words than to people"-xkcd

Tootoo does NOT belong on this team. He is classless and I would rather see the Wings be bad than classless. I feel the same way about Bertuzzi as well, but he at least CAN make the team better. With Tootoo the team becomes worse and in danger of being classless. Would you have liked Claude on the team? Or Roy? No. So why would you be okay with that POS.

This thread has been closed due to emotions being higher than people's ability to read, interpret, and properly respond to simple posts.

as long as he signs for around league minimum. i'd still prefer that we bring larsson back over at the same price though.

Do the Islanders have any good young defensive talent that we could trade Hudler and Rafalski (and/or picks) for one of their talents and Nabakov?
Dealing Rafalski and Hudler :
a) Clears up A LOT of cap space
b) Shows that Holland is "cleanin' out our closet" of guys who are overpriced, are lackluster players, and just want to ride the coattails of a fantastic team
c) Gives us suitable cap room for guys like Eaves, Miller, (and depending on how risky you want to go) and Ericcson
d) Also leaves plenty of cap space for another good defensemen or strong defensive forward to replace Draper (if he retires).

Good luck getting Rafalski to waive his trade clause.
