As good as Miller and Noronen can be, if Biron could earn the trust of his teammates and prove to be a consistent #1, their goalie situation would be set.
I can see your point. Neither dominated or ever will dominate the way Carey did that one season (such a strange career that guy has).

Who won for best goalie in the AHL last year? Lehtonen? I think that now that more and more goalies are coming for Europe and NHL teams put them in the AHL to get used to smaller rinks and the American playing style, we'll see more and more future NHL stars play full seasons and win awards in the AHL. Nowadays it seems that most great goalies only play a short stint in the minors before they get to the NHL.
