Garon Gone For Help on the Farm?

(Dany Sabourin Above)
(Ryan Stone Below)
That's what it appears like to me unless the Oilers decided to lop off one of the heads of the 3 headed goalie monster just to transplant another one into its place. Great for Garon to get a fresh start, his fall from grace here was meteoric. I wish him nothing but the best, if not for him last year the Ducks could've ended up thanking Lowe for the top pick in last years draft.

So who do we get in return?

Goaltender Dany Sabourin
6'4" 200lbs. 29 years old
19gp. 6-8-2 with a 2.85GAA and a 0.898 save % for the Pittsburgh Penguins

Center Ryan Stone
6'2" 199lbs. 23 years old
38gp. 9-19-28 +2 53pim. for the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins

A 4th Round Draft Pick in 2011

I would imagine that both players could be seeing their way to Springfield with both players needing waivers if they are transferred to the big clubs first. I pray that the Oilers aren't looking at keeping 3 goalies again. IMO if the Detroit deal for Roloson is legit, then take it and run with Sabourin and Deslauriers.

If not, see if Sabourin will clear waivers. Tambellini's 1st trade comes and to no ones surprise a goalie is leaving town, but to my disgust another one comes back in the deal.

So long Mathieu Garon, you were a good trooper, and you will be missed by this blogger.

Can you elaborate on the supposed "Roloson to detroit" trade? I've heard nothing of this.

It was mentioned by Stauffer awhile back IIRC it was a trade that would have an escalating draft pick, if they made it to the SCF we'd get their 1st rounder, at worst we'd get a 3rd rounder, at best a 1st.

I however winder if that's the way to go unless we are going into a full on rebuild since Garon has been moved.
