    Andy has been good to start the season and still has some gas in the tank. I could see a team like Philly opting to take a chance on him.

    Condon, not a chance anyone picks him up.

    you have to think these teams are already paying their own goalies... without the cap yeah sure why not.. but the dollars are important.

    Condon had a .914 save percentage, he hardly "saved" the season. Andrew Hammond had the exact same save percentage that season. Condon got us through a tough time, but I would give more credit to the players playing forward and defence before giving Condon all the credit.

    condon came in and wasn't a wreck. he played like a perfectly fine backup... teams on budgets don't give perfectly fine backups this sort of money

    I agree with this, just don't agree with the "he saved our season" peeps.

    We’d Probably have to take one of their bad goalies back, but if the return is decent (2nd round pick) I’d do the trade

    Well i think the argument is more about him coming and having that ,914 save pourcentage that we would not have had if it was Driedger or O'connor in net. ( Hammond was injured, right? And even Hammond would not have that )

    So while ,914 is not spectacular, without that trade we are probably missing the playoff that year.

    Now, there is nothing that warrant that contract, that's for sure. But he technically was a big reason we could get to the playoff when you take into account that the other player who would have had the net are Driedger and MOC.

    It was .914 the year before. That year he only played 200 and some minutes and sucked (.837 sv%)

    You are right, however, Hammond's ,914 save percentage did not instill a whole lot of confidence on the fanbase that year, so Condon's equal .914 save % the following year should have had the same effect.

    Yes, we did make the playoffs because he provided stability when needed, BUT there were many other factors that led us to the playoffs.

    If Joe Sakic picks up Condon I will cry laughing for a week.

    We'd be one bad bounce away from playing I don't even know who for like 60 games this season.

    Condon started 27 straight games and had 5 shutouts. He was amazing for us, so was EK, other players were playing well, but Condon saves that season for us without a doubt and was reason #2 after EK that we made the playoffs

    Agree to disagree. Either way, he seems like a good dude, and wish him the best, but he can't stop a beach ball right now and I am not so sure he will be turning it around any time soon. The extension was not necessary.

    I don't see how any of the kids in the AHL/ECHL could be worse than what we just saw in Arizona.

    Could L.A be a potential pick up destination for him seeing that Quick is now injured long term.

    If indefinitely covers the entire season? Then yes, though I have no idea about their organizational depth, only from a cost analysis standpoint.

    I can’t see them being interested. They have taken chances and failed enough times on iffy goalies

    I agree. The extension seemed a bit rich but a good idea at the time, you hoped he'd turn into a Reimer type of elite backup / 1B goalie, maybe even a starter like Andy did.

    I'd be into him being our starter next year when we are going for the #1 overall pick. He seems to be the guy to do that for you

    I know, but they've given up the most goals in the East by a wide margin and that is a playoff team outside of the goaltending. When you're 1 player away team do funny things. He'd be a good fit there.

    Gustavsson got the win for Belleville last night despite being heavily outshot (inclduing 18-0 in the third period alone). Seems like he'd feel right at home on the big club.

    By all accounts, he sounds like a promising pro. He could be up permanently after the Christmas break if he continues.
