Guess he forgot to say one will be given the opportunity to start in the AHL and the other the opportunity to fight for a starting job in the NHL
It's laughable to compare Wilson to Homer. They're both kind of idiots, but Homer has made it extremely clear that he's fine with what he has.

We have little cap space, Homer has openly said that he's fine with what he has, and Homer hasn't pursued a new goalie for the entirety of free agency. His only goalie moves were offering Nabokov and Turco one contract each before the off-season even started and then re-signing Leighton. That's it. Homer hasn't shown, during the entire off-season, that he was dedicated to finding a new goalie.

Wilson was obviously dedicated to bringing in goalies. He let Nabokov go and signed both Niitty and Niemi. Which is puzzling because he now has three NHL goalies signed.
