Don't mean to go off on a tangent but, how about a Kings G going to Waddell? Pavelec and Hedberg aren't doing it. Atlanta has zilch for G's in their farm.
I think we all agree that if a G is going to Waddell the only one it could possibly be would be Ersberg.
That's a gamble. EE is partially NHL tested (has played, but, never a full 82 game season). So, one can only judge him by what he's done. He could be elite. Elite goalies are totally impossible to identify until they are put into NHL game situations.
Bernier...no way. DL's potential loss if JB turned elite would be unrecoverable.
I mean, what does Waddell really expect for a 25 or so game rental of Kovi? If he had moved him months ago he'd be getting a whole lot more in return. But, now?????
