Working the Phones for a Goalie – Howson & Burke

// November 17th, 2011 // No Comments » // ACTIVE - Brian Burke - Toronto Maple Leafs, ACTIVE - Scott Howson - Columbus Blue Jackets, You Make the Call!

Looks like netminders are a hot commodity right now – both the Toronto Maple Leafs and the Columbus Blue Jackets are working the phones:

Not knowing when James Reimer willl be able to return, GM Brian Burke told ESPN.com “He’s been day-to-day for three weeks, so at some point we have to get a goaltender in here to bridge the gap until he’s healthy

“We’re seeing what’s available and seeing what the price tag is. Obviously nothing has tickled our fancy yet.”

Scott Howson is looking for a goalie right now, but Rick Nash is not part of the deal contrary to reports.

“Not once have I ever brought up his name,” Jackets GM Scott Howson told ESPN.com .

For his part, Nash hasn’t asked to get out, either.

“Rick has never asked for a trade, contrary to what has been reported,” his agent Joe Resnick told ESPN.com . “Rick is focused on trying to turn things around in Columbus and help the team get some wins.”

If you were the GM – who would you get to mind the posts…and who would you give up?
