Why wouldn't it be the plan? He's a European veteran that did his year of adjustment in the AHL, got a spot start down the stretch when every single point mattered, and was the backup in many of the playoff games. Maybe Boucher is in the running too and is even the favorite to land the job, but this guy has earned a shot to compete for the job.
