    I'm really not sure about this. Gerber would be a pricey but useless backup. I'd take a look at Sanford, or Anderson, or Ellis, or Legace, or anybody UFA this summer or with a small contract. but NOT Gerber.

    You mean you don't want a goalie that'll let in a deflating goal just after the team's struggled to get back into it, or worse yet, BEFORE the team has a chance to start?

    I'm not surprised nobody wants Gerber.  He has had a couple decent stretches with the team in a 3 year span and that's it.

    So TSN is now competing with Bruce Garrioch and Eklund for the most untrue never-will-happen rumours.
    There are much better ways to improve the Flames than adding an overpriced inconsistent goaltender who will never play anyways.
