The Russian Bob had some decent play a few years ago when he was a rookie, and CBJ are running out of options...They must have known Lu wasn't an option, and the price for Cory was too high...so that left Bob? They were rumored to be in talks of Neimi for Nash or Ben Bishop for Nash...Atta way CBJ, keep working your way out of Ohio and into Seattle or Portland hehehehe

He's going to try and fight Gillis in a barn? lol

I wonder how long into the draft it takes for Burkie to take off his tie, he looks so unprofessional when he does it.

Does he even tie them? When do you ever see him with a tied tie?

I like how you guys try to trash Bobrovsky just for the fact that the puddle and window of trading Luongo or Schneider is suddenly starting to get smaller and smaller.

Its fun watching your girls squirm....quit your yaking, Sergei Bobrovsky isn't as bad as people say he is,He is still raw and young who has lots of time to continue to develop.

We're not trashing him because of Lu/Schneider trades evaporating. We're trashing him because he sucks.

Lindback and Bobrovsky are not going to become Mike Smith. Sorry Yzerman and Howson, you bet on the wrong horses.

he doesn't suck, he's just not the guy who is going to guarantee a push into the playoffs for a team that is desperate for just that. If I'm a CBJ fan Im not too happy right now

I guess sometimes you have to realize if the rebuild didn't work you have to try try again...cough cough toronto

If an unproven goalie can go for 3 Picks, Luongo should fetch a lot. His contract is long but his salary is manageable for an elite goalie. I hope weMG is able to make a hockey deal by the time the puck drops

Someone seems angry for no apparent reason. People trash him not because of Lou/Cory but because the guy is not the answer to a team struggling to keep pucks out of the net. Those stats are hardly a goalie that will help a bottom feeder climb out of the basement.

Silly question, but I'll ask anyway. Does this set a standard for a backups worth? I mean we have a fantastic backup who could be a starter and from what I've seen, it's reasonable to assume he's somewhat safe. However, could other teams use this as precedent to low ball us on either of our top tier goalies? Obviously MG isn't going to move one if the price isn't right, but will it make it more difficult?

Bobrovsky? This is CBJ's? solution? He's sooooooooooooooooo bad. Yikes.


They pay through draft picks - which is a good thing. They can't develop for crap.

Bob at 23yo is a more experienced NHL goalie than Schneider at 26yo.

I could not see a rebuilding team like Colombus acquiring a soon to be UFA like Schneider without guarantee Schneider could stay with them more than one year.

Who know, maybe Vancouver allowed them to speak with Schneider agent and after realizing Schneider would be gone summer 2013 then they turned to a 23yo goalie with at least the guarantee to retain his right until 2016. And they didnt pay a fortune for him, a 45th overall + 2 x 4th = 35-40th overall

Now we know one thing for Sure, after looking at all their option, Tampa Bay and Colombus preferred to acquire Lindback and Bobrovsky than pay whatever it take to get Schneider or Luongo.

How bad does your goaltending situation have to be for you to think “You know, I should call up the Flyers for help”.
