Alright, we all know that Penguins goalie Marc-Andre Fleury has the potential to be an all-star. We also know that he is not having the best year. Now comes word that he will be on the sidelines approximately 6-8 weeks with an ankle sprain.

So, the question that will be asked again is this: Is it time to try to trade one of our goalies to Pittsburgh? And if so, for whom?

Budaj probably has the most trade value at this point. I would like to see Colorado go after someone like Colby Armstrong or Erik Christensen - guys that play more of a "gutsy" style of game...guys like Lappy. Or perhaps we could go after some solid blueline help. Darryl Sydor is a name that's been tossed around in trade rumors and, while I personally think he has seen better days, he could be a more stabilizing force than someone like Marek Malik (see Ek's rumor: http://www.hockeybuzz.com/blog.php?post_id=11721 ). Or do we try to package someone like Svatos (and maybe even Liles) to go after a Fleury or a Whitney as well?

I'm not saying that Theodore is necessarily "all-that" either. Is it time to go with one over the other? I don't know. I do know that we are getting "bullied" by some of the more-physical teams out there and little grit could do wonders for this, already-talented hockey team.
