HAHA i just posted that a couple hours ago and Rick got mad and thought i made it up and was just trying to make him mad.
Andhere you go with the same rumor. Too funny. Buffalo Rick will be here soon in 3, 2, 1.........
Honestly, it's crap for crap. I agree with your assessment of Lehner. I thought that when he was still with Ottawa. But...does he do better behind St. Louis than Buffalo (not better than Buffalo + Dahlin. Better than what he's had)? Maybe. I'm suspicious, but maybe.
But here's the thing: Allen, in my opinion, is no better and arguably worse. He did have St. Louis in front of him and was simply horrible. He's been horrible. I don't see him getting better in St. Louis and it would be beyond entertaining to see his Keystone Kops act in Buffalo (except that now he should have Dahlin).
I think they're both crap, but in this trade it's Lehner that at least has the opportunity to get marginally better.
