He had a decent(at best) camp, but it wasn't enough. If we can ride this out for another season, Finley should be ready to back up Vokoun, and Lassila can take over in Milwaukee. Around then, Vokoun will be too expensive, and between Lassila and Finley, one of them will most likely have emerged as a number one. My money is on Lassila, who, as mentioned, is the top goalie in Finland with Lehtonen gone, and draws a lot of comparisons to Kiprusoff, even studying with the same legendary goalie coach, Urpo Ylonen.

nicely put, bro.
