Lundqvist: said himself that hed like to play in the AHL next.
Labarbera: "wtf? where do i go?"

who do you all see as the #1 guy of the future?
first off this is a GREAT problem to have and something that shouldn't even be given a 2nd thought at this point...

either lundqvist or blackburn will be the #1 goalie in the future and after 1 of them has won the #1 job and secured that position, the other could get moved. but there is no reason to rush into moving either just for the sake of moving one...let them work in the system together and they will push each other to be better...they will both still have great trade value in 2 years...

as for labarbera, i think he'll be traded this summer at the draft...he has been unbelievable this year but he isn't a future #1 and they need to clear the spot out for blackburn/lundqvist
