I'm sure Duchesne will still be starting, Kennedy backing up.

Yetman is in the picture now and in my opinion he is better than Roger.

Duchesne starting, Kennedy gone and Yetman in. With Churchill gone, there's no question as to what is going to happen now. Logjam and confusion out...clear picture in.

Well, they made the right move by getting rid of Churchill. The problem is that Duchesne isn't any better.

They're both competent, but Duchesne seems to give up a lot of rebounds, and he most certainly will not have the defense around him next year that can clear those rebounds out of the slot as he had this season.

Duch is much better than Churchill. He doesnt give up soft goals, he did in teh finals against Rimouski but Rimouski makes any goalie look bad. Look what they did to Battochio at the Mem cup.

Other than the fact that the book on Duchesne is that he gives up rebounds like rubber wall, there isn't a problem. So as long as the Halifax D can clear everything, he's fine. If not...well, then there is a problem.

That's pretty stupid. Expecting the D to clear everything or the goalie to stop everything. Neither is going to happen.

Nobody's expecting a big season from this team. However, Duchesne is a better goaltender than Churchill. Rebounds or not.

Im sure Jeremy Duchesne becomes #1 goalie, although, Churchill is still considered to be in the top goalies in the league. Many teams would love having Halifax's particular situation. At least they have a certain stability at that position. Some interesting points made on his strenghts and weakneses by members of the forum, and it comes same to some of my personnal observations about them. As for Cape Breton, im not sure on Martin Houle, if he will be back, and theres is still Proteau, acquiered last year on a deal with Val d'Or.

I don't think you've heard the news. Jason Churchill is a Sea Dog. And has been for over a week.

His rebound control is better than Churchill's though. It is true Duchense gives up the rebounds but he places them better. Not many second chance shots went in on Duchense.

Proteau went to VD from CB. Houle is going pro, that is why no one picked him in the expansion draft. That leaves Davenport as the #1
:eek: and Dube and Perron will battle for the back up job.

the difference is duchesne doesn't direct rebounds directly into the slot.

Yetman and Kennedy have their JR A rights owned in the MJAHL so sending one down to JR A isnt a bad thing. It did Jason Churchill a world of good :)
