Wade Flaherty, I think. I'd like to see Auld play a full year rather than sit on the bench. Maybe bring Auld up later in the season.

It's a no question. Who else could be fitting right now ? He's worth to give him a chance.

ok bring up Flat, oldtime hockey, what an incredible story if he would be the first one to bring the cup to Van as the first keeper, so the money invested in Cloutch would be worth it. We would have the best paid backup in history. What a story. :mrgreen: :drunk:

ps: i guess i have enough, good night. read ya.

Auld will be the backup, Flaherty will start in the Moose.

Flaherty will start in the Moose.
Flaherty will also be the mento for Ellis with the Moose this year.

Auld no question about it. They have to find out if he can play in the NHL and there is only one way to do that.

Ya this one's a no brainer. No offense but there's no way anyone other than Auld is starting at backup this year. That's how most everyone works to be a number one is minor league to backup to starter. I just hope Crawford gives the kid some games and doesn't burn out our new 2.5 Million goalie by playing him 9 games out of 10
