Yep. The main reason Taylor is getting a chance to shine is Ramo and Ortio are in Europe. And Irving, because he has been in the NHL, would need to pass through waivers if he dresses for more than 25 Heat games - so the Heat can use Irving but not as a number one.
Gillies and Brossoit are both too young for the AHL.
