Goodbye Sabu

Pens Trade Dany Sabourin for Mathieu Garon


Big trade for the Penguins today. They traded goaltender Dany Sabourin, foward Ryan Stone and, a 4th round pikc in 2011 to the Edmonton Oilers for goaltender Mathieu Garon. In 15 games this year, Garon went 6-8-0 with a 3.17 GAA and a save percentage of .895. Sabourin in 19 games this year is 6-8-2 with a 2.85 GAA and .898 save percentage. Ryan Stone hasn't shown much in all the chances he has been given in the big show.


I can't really agree or disagree with this trade the Penguins aquired a goalie whom has the potential of a starting goaltender, but to this point is just having a bad year. The Oilers got a career backup in Sabourin and a center Ryan Stone whom may never amount to anything. Here is a video I dug up on YouTube featuring Mathieu Garon.
