I feel this statement contradicts itself.

Anderson's goaltending was out of this world in the first half of 2009-2010, but has gone from average to bad since then. Other than the playoffs against San Jose and a few odd games (like the Dallas game last March) between last January and now, he's been pretty bad. At best, wildly inconsistent.

I hope Pickard plays in the NHL next season, as I do think he can be a starter in this league. Whether the other goalie on the roster is Anderson or not, it probably doesn't matter. He seems shaken, and I'm doubting he regains his composure while on the Avalanche (barring some other change, like coaching).
