Bryz and Giggy aren't questionable goalies. Both can be elite goaltenders; the only thing questionable is which goalie is going to start.

But I ask you, a team that has 1/2 their payroll comitted to these 6 guys:
Little Nieds $2.00M
Yikes (Marchant) $2.47M
Doesn't look all that scary to me. 2 questionable goalies & two serviceable forwards to go with two superstar Dmen. That's more than 1/2 your team.
I just don't see the genius that's supposed to be Brian Burke.

getting Francois Beauchemin in return, but IMO he got lucky with that one. But kudos to him for hiring Randy Carlyle, signing Teemu Selanne, getting rid of players who didn't buy into the system,
