Had a .915 in 72 games with the Sabres in 01-02, a .913 in 52 games with the Sabres in 03-04, a .918 with the Flyers in 07-08, a .915 in 08-09, and an overall career save percentage of .911. The guy's not the greatest but at least acknowledge the facts that his career numbers and consistent status as an NHL player point to a decent player and that he played well for us in his three years with us (how many goalies have we had that posted consecutive .915 save percentage seasons with at least 55 games played in both seasons?). Basically, he's not trash as some of you would call him.
He not trash but from what I recall from when they let him go....they weren't crazy about his ho-hum "demeanor" but it was from a starting goalie standpoint. As a backup yeah he would be fine but I would just rather him not come back to this team. He's tainted with the Rangers anyway...
