Senators' Quest For Goalie Continues -- Ottawa Citizen.
Clicking the above link will take you to an excellent "state of the union" type report by Allen Panzeri of the Ottawa Citizen on where the Senators are. On one side I am pleased that there seems to be a concerted effort to get upgraded goaltending. To me this is a priority whether we get Hasek back or not. I am a little concerned over what Muckler is prepared to trade away though. According to Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun, Muckler was ready to trade away Havlat, Emery, Philips and a first round draft pick for Luongo. This is a pretty steep price to pay for a goaltender who has not proven himself one iota under play-off pressure. We have no idea if he is another Turcot. Muckler has a thing for throwing in high draft picks to sweeten the pot, and that practice is going to catch up to us.
I am still holding out a slim hope that Huet will be available after July 1.
