Well, CJ was drafted in 2006, and it's early 2010, so that's 3.5 years of development.

I don't think it'd be a bad idea to have him play for another year in the AHL, but our backup goalie situation is really screwed (to say the least...). After seeing how poorly vally's doing in the AHL, I never want to see him in a rangers uniform again. If he can't win half his games in the AHL (when CJ was what, 13-7-2 on that team?), then he's not an NHL caliber goalie.

Both of CJ's starts so far have been respectable (first one was excellent, second one was all right), even excellent considering the team in front of him couldn't give any goal support, and so far have exceeded what I'd expect out of a backup goaltender.

We definitely need another goalie in the system though, in case of injuries, underperformance, or the need to actually play a 3rd string goalie.

I doubt we're getting one this season though.. so the pack is probably screwed for the rest of this season
