I don't like veteran backups as a rule, but I thought Emery was fine. His GAA lined up with the team average and they had 15-9-1 record out of him. If the backup is getting 60% of the pts and has a Gaa that doesn't kill the team average. I'm not going to complain.

I would definitely prefer better and I would prefer a younger one who might compete for the starting job, but all things considered, the backup goalie spot is one of my smallest concerns. He didn't have enough stinkers for me to be upset with him. I don't mind that they kept him around. If the goalie position is a problem later in the year, I think they'll make a move for one of the vets on the tale end of their deals.
