Out of curiosity, what goaltender in the system is qualified be the backup?

I have to be honest, I don't think any of them are, and Joel Howard isn't ready yet. I have been critical of the Front's goaltending drafting under the past GM/Scouting regime. Those guys are gone, its on Gilmour now, but he's only had one year.

Don't put the sins of the past GM on Gilmour, he's only been in there for a year.

Appologies, I just saw this reply. 100 percent correct. Furlong is a free signing, if he succeeds, then good on the Fronts for finding him.
