Rumor Update: Lacroix wants netminder
Hockeyfirst.com is reporting that Colorado Avalanche General Manager Pierre Lacroix has been in close talks with both the New York Rangers and the Tampa Bay Lightning with regards to trading for a replacement to Patrick Roy.Recent rumors had Jose Theodore going to Colorado, which could be true, and would allow the Avalanche to have a proven regular season goaltender.
If Lacroix wants to trade for Mike Dunham, nothing would be completed unless Glen Sather saw Curtis Joseph heading to Broadway, which could be a plausible trade.
Also, the Khabibulin trade is unlikely since numerous reports previously stated that Tampa would not trade the Bulin Wall.
Im thinking that the only trades that we could see happening is either the Jose Theodore trade or the 3 way with Colorado, New York Rangers and Detroit.
