Possibly an unpopular opinion, but my ideal goalie situation would be to trade Auld and re-sign Noronen. It seems that everybody who really supports Auld says "He performed admirably, given the situation" or something like that. But I don't think that Auld is a bonafide #1, nor does he have that potential. Cloutier is a proven #1. Everybody points to bad goals he has let in, but has Auld not let in like, a bad goal every game or two? Clouts didn't let in that many. Platoon Clouts and Noronen in a 50-30 split or so, and lets see what all this talk about Noronen is about. If he's what people say, great, let Cloutier's contract expire or deal him at the deadline. If not, well Cloutier is good enough. We should be able to get a depth goaltender for the AHL (is Flaherty ever going to retire?) for Auld and probably more (picks and prospects).
Maybe I'm insane. But I look at our 3 goalies and think, "Which two make the most sense as a tandem?" And let's not forget that Cloutier is a fiery, competitive, well-respected man in the dressing room while Auld is more quiet. Which personality type do we lack?
