    Hate it.

    I'm gonna love watching him be the backbone of that franchise in 3 years, though.

    Maybe we can get him back in FA

    I am right with you and will not hesitate for a moment to wallpaper this forum with "I told you so" posts 5 years from now when Bryzgalov is an expensive backup and Bobrovski is a top 5-10 goalie in the league.

    That will free up some more cap money.

    he leaves the corners open too much and we got better than value on bob ...

    good reflexes are about 1/2 of being a good goalie ... instincts and positioning are the other two components and at this point, his instinct to go down into the butterfly as fast as he does is going to cost him for the rest of his career.

    very solid move by homer ... good bye bob ... thanks for making that year with boocher easier to watch.

    Just last year Washington got a first and a second from Colorado for Varlamov when he was a RFA. Is Bobrovsky that much worse than Varlamov? Varlamov had never played a full season and this year was the first time in his career he played in at least 50 games. If you look at his numbers this year and compare them to Bobrovsky's last year they are pretty close.

    Not thrilled with the return. Should've gotten more, but at least he's going to CBJ. Its not like Howson has a realistic shot of putting a decent team in front of him any time soon.

    Should have gotten more.I hate to see Bob go especially since now we have no choice but to put all our hope in Bryz and I for one am worried...
    I do understand what Homer is trying to do and I still have faith in him his decisions have been great for the most part..
    Would love Bobby Ryan here but only at the right price..

    varlamov was making about a million less and is better ... straight up better ... bob's numbers are inflated because our team is much better than washington

    He was a RFA when he got traded and the Avs signed him to a deal that makes his cap hit 2.8; or about a million more than what Bob's will be this season. And the numbers I was referring to are Bobrovsky's rookie season and Varlamov's first season in Colorado. Nothing that I've seen so far in Varlamov's career makes me say he is just flat out much better than Bobrovsky. They are both very young and now Varlamov will have the better team in front of him, but I'll say I think Bobrovsky has more potential than Varlamov does.

    ok enough of the fighting back and forth on whether it was a good move or not.


    fact of the matter is, it was necessary. at the least, it makes Bryz more comfortable knowing he doesn't have a 23 year old backing him up. at the most, it sheds salary and gets them something in return.


    i just think this move is a precursor to something else. has to be. i also believe it takes the Flyers out of the Nash sweepstakes. otherwise, they would have worked out a bigger deal instead of just shipping Bob to CBJ.

    sorry dad

    Bob has all the talent in the world, his flaws in North American hockey become cured with experience. When the guy is 27, watch out.

    Really think they should of gotten a 1st though. Even if it was a 1st next year. I bet that was an option, but most likely they are loading ammo to trade up, word is theres someone they really like in the top 10. My guess would be Griffin Reinhart, but thats just me.
