Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
between injuries and reduced playing time, I have goalie issues on two different teams
1) with Emery's health in question, the best FA's are Leighton and Legace. Leighton is my first choice, but hear he may end up backing up Turco if Stars trade him to Flyers. I can drop Emery for one of these goalies, or drop a D instead, waiting to see if Emery goes on IR. Other goalies are Miller & Vokoun.
2) with Thomas losing starts to Rask, and rumors of him possibly being traded, I am looking at FA's to fill the void. Best options are Rask and Niittymaki. I would drop Rene Bourque, carry 4 goalies until Thomas is either traded or getting more starts. My other goalies are Miller & Halak. So, Rask, Nitty or stand pat?

I'm not ready to drop Thomas just yet. My concern about Nitty is that after this incredible hot streak he is bound to cool off (like Miller & Vokoun recently). But he and the bolts are definitely on fire.
1 tough choice cause they are not telling us anything you still have 2 good goalies so stand pat there until its confired.
2. i doubt that thomas is going anywhere but you could drop him for nitti or rask but with rask your in the same boat
i don't think i would drop bourque again you have 2 good goalies so stick it out a bit
