Unfortunately this is Desjardins' third organization, so I'm not holding my breath. You never know, Tim Thomas didn't become an elite netminder until he was well into his 30s, but I doubt he'll ever be more than a very good backup, a la Johan Hedberg.

I am thrilled though that the Monsters finally have an excellent young goalie and the Avs have a halfway decent emergency callup
