    Default I need a starter I can afford...bad!

    OK, so here's the deal. I'm hanging on to first by a thread. I've got goaltending problems. Rask is saving my ass, Ward is giving me ulcers. It gets worse, I have the Bulin Wall now on IR, Nilstrop headed back to the AHL and Giguere who is of no help whatsoever. I need a third Goalie! An FA or WW is not an option, there are none! Rask and Ward I'm good with. The Question is, If I'm going to add a starting goalie on the cheap, who should it be? I don't need a top 10 guy, I need a reliable third starter who can go .500 in wins and not shit the bed with GAA. I don't need to start him every game, just spot starts to fill in the holes. Who should I target for a trade that might fit the bill?? Put another way, who are the guys that have lost value over the first half and are affordable but who can come back and be respectable in the second half?

    Khudobin is your best bet - Boston has the least GP so he's gonna play quite a bit. Are you able to handcuff this guy? He's probably cheap.

    Otherwise... Hiller is probably still cheap, considering Fasth is getting the start today after giving up 4 goals. Luongo is a 1B but he might be too expensive for your tastes. Holtby was abysmal earlier but is rebounding nicely, but it might be too late to buy him for very cheap.
