I'm of the opposite mind, I trade for him now if I can.

Once he gets here, you get him to take to the fans and the organization and you have six months of exclusive negotiating rights to him that no one else has and you don't have to bid against other teams.

You are willing to risk a possible/probable overpayment for a possible rental? It's just to sketchy for me there. If Bob wants to go to free agency there is nothing stopping him I wouldn't be able to risk it. Too much at stake

It's a risk, absolutely.

But I think he doesn't cost you that much right now. Columbus has made it public they have an problem with him and he with them.

I also don't think as an organization you can afford to throw in the towel in January on the entire season.

Aside from Jordan Binnington (two games) the Blues are TOTALLY SCREWED at the goal tending position. They have no one in the organization that can help for as far as the eye can see.

I'd do that deal in heartbeat but Columbus never would.

Bob doesn't excite me that much as a rental unless we are getting rid of a couple of contracts that I consider bad or challenging. Your deal would get rid of 2 imho.

I still have hope that Husso can be the goalie in 2-3 years. Signing bob for a 2-3 year deal would be ok with me as long as the $ were reasonable. I have little interest in him for a 5 year deal for example.

He may be the answer at some point. But I've almost always been in the camp of finding veteran goal tenders. So much of their game is mental and I don't trust any of these youngsters.

The Blues historically have had a very good history with older, more experienced goalies.

If Jarmo takes that deal he should be fired immediately unless the pick is a first

He's not getting a first for an UFA who's been told to stay home.

I wouldn't even offer a second.

I would offer Allen and his choice of a prospect off a list DA offers

It's def. a bad deal for columbus but they aren't really in a position of strength.
If we could get them to take Allen and Steen I'd consider throwing something pretty decent in there even if we couldn't resign Bob.

You're right as in a team can't throw in the towel this early. Maybe also right about the price for Bob being lowered now. Husso is here and in a few years might be good. Not as bad as you make it seem with our goalie prospects (including Binnington).

That's what I mean. If anything you are saving $10 million in cap space. I'd be willing to give up something significant in su h a deal. Also then you don't have to use up protection on Steen in the expansion draft. That all holds value.
