Addressing the Backup Goaltender Situation



Some of you might have seen Darren Dreger's list of the top 10 players most likely to be traded at the deadline and one name stuck out that I believe would really help the Sabres make a deep run in the playoffs - Marty Turco.

One of the biggest concerns that I have with this team is the lack of a reliable backup goaltender to give Miller some much needed rest after the Olympic break and into the playoffs (which I'm assuming we make barring any unforeseen circumstances).

Turco's current contract is around $5.5 million so we'd have to move someone like Lydman or Hecht to make this happen or possibly negotiate a trade with the Stars.

While I don't think this is likely to happen I wanted to hear the opinion of fellow Sabres fans on this topic...
