Didn't even think he was still in the NHL

Really liked him, but our goalies have been really sound this year. Maybe if Nilsson had a long term injury I'd say try him out. He had a decent amount of success here with our trash can teams, especially considering he finished two seasons playing 20+ consecutive games. He's not a terrible goalie.

I'm sure we'll never forget how Tortorella started him over Luongo during the outdoor classic. That was the final blow...

The final blow was that sack of **** Hanzal took out three Canucks with cheapshots in one game that year.

If this had have happened right when Nillson got hurt, maybe for a short term fix and then waive again once everyone was healthy.

 

Now with both our injured goalies close it doesn’t make sense at all.

No lack of love for Lack, but there's no lack of quality goaltenders in the league

Love the guy, pick him up for Utica

Doesn’t work that way. You’d have to keep him up or waive him (as NJ is doing) to get him to Utica. NJ would have first dibs and would just claim him back for their own farm team.

Flames can use an upgrade on Mike Smith and we all know Eddie has an excellent relationship with Bill Peters ::D

Eddie is one of those guys you can easily be happy for, he's set up financially for life and had his run in the NHL. If this is it for him he's done well for himself. Maybe open a taco stand in Sweden now.

He's had more than his fair share of chances to make a splash in the NHL and hasn't. Tough to see but, probably a fairly easy decision for NJ.

This.

 

Or, actually, I'd really like to see him become a hockey TV personality. Put him on Sportsnet and let his personality run the show. NBA-centric TV has done this with some of the bigger basketball personalities (Charles Barkley, Shaq, Jalen Rose) to great success. NHL needs to follow suit. Once Eddie's playing career is done let him run wild on TV and do all the Taco segments he wants.

We got the draft pick that eventually become Guillaume Brisebois in return. Good trade for JB. JB has been able to prove over time that most of his moves are actually good moves.
