Good move!!! It was impossible to start the season with 3 goalies and the idea of maybe losing Tokarski by waivers was too risky

$838,000 in cap savings... That's all this was. PK Subban gets one of his buddies back if he can work himself out of the AHL.
 
Eventually, Tangradi could do the job that Travis Moen doesn't wanna do anymore. Even if he starts the season in Hamilton, it's a good trade for me. Now, if we can get rid of Moen.

Had no issue with Budaj, he did his job knew his role. Unfortunately for him a better goalie came into town & it was his time to back up CP

I dunno if Bergevin looks even smarter now or the Jets GM is a big dummy?

Surprised that Budaj was put on waivers by the Jets. Should be interesting to see if a team picks him up.

Regarding the deal, very pleased about it. Clears cap space, and Tokarski had no options. Definitely the best move they could have done. Even though they didn't get much of a return.

Good on the Jets... their backup had a total of 3 NHL starts in his career.
Lol! To think, Budaj is good enough to steal Pavalec starting spot if given a chance, I'm also quite surprised he cleared waivers to be honest with you. I guess it just goes to show you how goalteners aren't really needed at the current moment.
