Wait, what?  I thought they were set with Driedger. And Vanecek to take over the franchise after.  So why does Graubauer sign there at all, and what (if any) is Seattle’s plan here??

Also, YIKES to signing any goalie for that kind of term.

Wow - I thought he was a lock in Colorado.  What’s going on here?

All I know is the Avs need a goalie, badly.

Schwartz and Wennberg locked up too by SEA.  Both decent moves (though they overpaid a little for Wennberg) but every other move Seattle’s made so far doesn’t exactly inspire confidence in their management.

Seattle just made Colorado’s life a lot tougher. Not much to pick through for a starting goaltender.

I said late last year that Bernier would make sense for the Aves, and I would have to imagine he’s now their top priority.

Only if the Devils trade him MC, he signed with them today.

If i were Fleury I’d be having Allan Walsh find a way to get me onto the Avs by tonight.

Detroit can help them facilitate that!
