    You can find this kind of pattern for any goalie who have spent enough time in the NHL to get hot at the right time, the stats above are David Aebischer.

    Man, if MT thinks Condon and Tokarski were bad because they werent stopping grade A prime scoring chances, wait till Scrivens lets in garbage shots.

    So we traded a serviceable bottom 6 winger (proven) for an AHL goaltender..

    And this is the management team people on this board think is doing a good job?

    He has yet to prove himself after all that has happened...
    And we already have enough bottom 6 wingers, just saying.

    Yep.

    The big management issue is the fact that they first re-hired a failed coach, and are now refusing to replace him.

    Condon and Tokarski have already been doing that.
    Scrivens isn't our starter, Condon will be.
    Scrivens is just an NHL experienced presence in net to help Condon get perspective and rest.
    Hell. If Scrivens can help win just 25% of the games, its a step up.

    My thoughts exactly, look at the moves mb has made the last year or two nothing has improved the team. The team has improved because of Prices goaltending and that's it.

    Well to be fair management took a risk and was hoping that Kassian would use this 2nd chance to turn his dissapearing career around. They needed him to be what he could be. What does he do in exchange for that chance? Gets into a car accident after drinking all night and breaks his foot. If I was MB I would of been extremely upset. Not only did he break his promise to MB but he also puts the team in a difficult situation by not being able to play(broken foot), AND they lose him for most of the season when you count the rehab and time for reconditioning. You then STILL expect the team to give this guy another chance and risk another relapse??? I dont think so.

    Im all for people getting their chances at redemption. Love them come back stories. Part of me wanted to see this with ZK but I also understand why MB decided that he couldn't risk it again. He tried it once and was burned by it. Imagine what would happen here and in this city if ZK relapsed again. What would you all be saying then. Im sure quite a few would complaining on how stupid it was of MB to give this guy another chance and would be calling for his fireing. You can bet on it.

    Looks like those TV shows where they find toxic materials in a building, you need to get rid of them.

    Kassian's fate was sealed the minute he hit the tree (and all the other metaphors it stands for).

    All Bergevin did was to to look for a near-matching contract to Kassian's and Scrivens was the path of least resistance, as soon as the Oil agreed to take on some salary so that Scrivens and Kassian would have a similar cap hit.

    What the deal particularly says is how desperate GMs are to preserve or add cap space -- it's now a rare commodity, and even on an insignificant deal such as this, notice how Scrivens' retained salary was to the last dollar.

    That was just strategic mind games, throwing our opponents for a loop and making Galchenyuk more hungry to prove his worth.

    Losing faith in this team more and more every day....this trade is more about mb's ego then a deal that is hood for the team...kassian should have been given a chance in the ahl to prove himself....we need kassian more than scrivins the bum....at least kassian has upside...he has a disease and mb knew that when he traded for kassian in the 1st place...

    This is a trade to make a trade and pick up garbage that was playing like garbage
