    He's been bad for the entirety of the contract so far. Its okay to say he's having a bad year due to injury, its likely not the only reason but what's the excuse for last year? Like I said, hes only really been decent for us for about a 15 games stretch when Anderson was injured. Outside of that, he's been a far below average goalie (~.900). There's really no reason to believe he's anything else than what his career numbers show. Its the same thing as Hammond. Every single piece of historical information told us he wasn't a capable back up.

    And you're the one using the word "trash". There's no crazy polarizing euphemism being used here besides your post. Condon is not good. That is just fact. His contract is bad. That is another fact. No need to get emotional over it. We likely won't ever see him play for this team again and I seriously couldn't care less. I feel no ill will towards him.

    he has played great definitely bought himself another year or two in the NHL, just hopefully not with Ottawa as we have a bad track record with signing back up goalies.

    We can sign him for 1-1.2 million for a year or two, then trash Andy in the off-season. We aren't trying to make the playoffs for the foreseeable future anyways, just roll with Nilsson.

    I hope he gets a decent look down the stretch. I wouldn’t be surprised if he’s on the team next year.

    I hope this is a joke, if they sign another goalie to a 3 year contract based off of a couple hot months im going to lose my mind

    I was gonna say the same thing. 2 mil for 2 seasons isn't bad, but we've done this twice before with Hammond and Condon. Hopefully Dorion learned his lesson. Give a 1 year extension. Max 2. But we also have Hogberg near ready, Gustavsson still in the AHL for a little while, and Daccord hopefully with him. Plus we still have Condon. So it's not like. Nilsson is the only possibility.

    But I do agree with him in trading Andy. Now is the perfect time. Hope it happens soon. And I hope he goes to a contender.

    I'd offer him a one year deal. Take it or leave it.

    I want this to be noted. Pierre Dorion killed it on this acquisition so far. He recognised the talent of a struggling goalie with massive potential, trades for him for very little.

    PD (and the goalie staff) showed him how they wanted him to play differently. Then he starts putting up these numbers?

    Yeesshh, Gotta give it to him.

    Too good to abandon. Trade Andy. Stock has risen and unlikely to go any higher seeing this much rubber! Obviously not a part of the "5 year plan"!

    He would leave it. His number 1 priority being a back up is too lock up as many seasons as possible

    If he keeps it up even a little bit then I expect PD to do the 2-3 year respectable backup deal. I think there is a mutual respect there and I think Nillson really likes playing here or he wouldn't be comfortable enough to put up this performance.

    I'm fine with keeping him at 2 years max the sens have been burned twice already and it usually results in lost assets or cap dollars to fix.

    Basically why I said 1 year.. You may be right though and he'd leave it.. Anyway .. Although he is performing well now, I would wait until the end of the season to make a decision .. **** happens so you never know what may influence that by then.

    Can't see another team just offering a two year deal to him right off the bat.

    I'd offer him a one year extension right now just so he doesn't have to worry about where he's going and so he can settle in better. Then depending on how next year goes, see from there.

    If he ends the year with these numbers he will absolutely be offered a contract by several teams looking for a goalie.

    These are always gambles, and yes it sucks when they don’t pan out like Hammond and Condon, but I think you still have to go back to the well because the pay off is so worth it.

    He has to be offered at least a two year deal because someone else will for sure.

    This is all dependent on him continuing to play at this level. We also need an NHL quality goalie
    If we plan on bringing up a kid next year.

    If we're trading a bunch of the UFAs, just sign Nilsson 3 years.

    -He'll always be at least an NHL backup. He's got a longer resume of doing that than Condon or Hammond. So it gives us a bit of stability going forward.
    -Nilsson being overpaid for an extra year or two does not matter if our UFAs walk. We'll have very little to spend that money on.
    -One year sets us up to possibly have to lose him, or give him real starter money on a long term deal if he proves himself over 50+ games.
    -3 years is a perfect bridge to Gustavsson or Daccord.
    -Gives us a goalie to expose to Seattle. If Gustavsson or Daccord are ready by then, and Nilsson establishes himself as a starter, he then becomes a positive asset in a sense that if Seattle takes Nilsson, we keep another exposed piece.

    The downside isn't that large because of the dynamic of our current situation where we won't have a ton of people we need to spend money on.

    I think we either overpay him or he leaves because a team will 100% offer him a 2-3 year deal. He's still at a good age, he's huge, has always played behind average to below average teams, and he has been pretty good thus far this season. (at least at 5 on 5)

    I don't know if I would re-sign him.

    It’s not really an overpayment if other teams are willing to match it, or we have to make an offer to top other offers.

    I agree, if we want him we’ll have to offer a multi year deal, 2 years at least.

    We traded for him and gave him a better opportunity than Vancouver did. There may be some loyalty to that from him for giving him the opportunity to resurrect his career.

    If he plays like he has to round out the year I think we need to keep him. I’m torn a little about trading Andy at the deadline, but if we do we definitly need to keep this guy in my opinion.
