Either 2 things are going to happen here. Fichaud and/or Damphouse are goners or that they are preparing to trade a goalie. My guess would be Garon. The way he is playing now, his value is up. No point in keeping him as a back-up as he will never get more than 25 games a year. He deserves better. My only question would be who can take his place? Fichaud? Maybe 15 games top.

We now have a lot of goalies in our system:

Halak and Lindberg (will both play in Europe next year)
Damphouse(Hamilton, minor league goalie, goner?)
Danis (Hamilton or ECHL)
Fichaud (Hamilton? maybe a goner, Theo back-up if we trade Garon?)
Michaud (Hamilton or ECHL)

Remember that goalies peak later than other positions. Aside from Fichaud and Damphouse, all are very young and will require time to develop.
