Oh Bruce, you're so silly!

Taking a little time to read the latest at Spector's Hockey, I was left laughing out loud over Bruce Garrioch's latest rumor involving the Bolts:


- The Buffalo Sabres could finally be ready to move goalie Martin Biron, but there's some concern over how much cap space they'll have. Garrioch suggests they may be on the verge of moving him to the Tampa Bay Lightning for forward Ruslan Fedotenko.

I said I was left laughing out loud over this. It wasn't because of disrespecting Biron and what he is capable of... But I'm thinking of things from both team perspectives. if Ruslan Fedotenko was all it took to land Biron, it'd be a shock. Likewise, the Lightning going for Biron after paying a sum for Denis, having him outplayed by Johan Holmqvist as well as investing in Karri Ramo this off season just seems like a ruse. The Lightning's concern right now is both at the forward position and at the blue line. Not in net. Yes, Denis isn't all the hype he was made out to be by the team but he and Holmqvist have been a sight better than John Grahame and Sean Burke in the net last season.

Even in a more balanced deal, I don't see this happening. The Sabres can get more for Biron and the Lightning aren't in a position (financially) where they can pick up another goaltender in the higher end of the spectrum.
