Teslak or Duchesne will back up Backlund. Depending on what happens at camp, one of these guys could get released.

Riopel will probably end up in the ECHL.

We don't know how the Flyers and Sharks are doing it, but usually each team gets to place one goalie on the affiliate, so we might only have room for one.

Just a guess, we'll see at camp - acc. to this article, Riopel thinks he's being signed to be a Phantom.
to me duschesne is not part of the equation at all. he isnt any good. he may even be let go. riopel will probably be in the echl just to get playing time unless he really dazzles in camp as bob backlund they want to see what they have with him.
