Pittsburgh got a veteran backup to Fleury, and the Oilers got Dany Sabourin, a former AHL star and current NHL castoff, an AHL level centerman in Ryan Stone, and a 4th round pick in 2011.
Los Angeles got a 7th round pick for Jason LaBarbera, who used to be one of the better goaltenders in the AHL.
Obviously a win-win situation for both teams in the equation.
The other available goaltenders on the market:
1. Curtis Sanford
2. Martin Gerber
3. Wade Dubielewicz (who was claimed, by the way)
4. Jason LaBarbera (now in Vancouver)
5. Mathieu Garon
6. Dany Sabourin
Out of these 8 goaltenders, who is the most bang-for-buck? Obviously Garon, followed by LaBarbera and Sabourin.
I'm sick so I don't feel like writing much more.
Dany Sabourin has now played for all the western Canadian teams. An eastern tour of duty is now inevitable.
Farewell, Mathieu Garon.
BRING ON THE JEFF DESLAURIER ERA.
