Nor has it been shown they can't. I'm not saying I agree with the team's decision to pick up LaBarbera in lieu of a tried-and-true veteran goalie, but I also think that if Garon and "somebody else" swap off the net-minding somewhere around 50-50, then having both Labs and Hauser in the wings as the "somebody else" isn't as bad as it might first appear. Between the three of them, you have 3 of the top-10 goalies in the AHL last year, in a season that saw the AHL plumb with NHL regulars.
