I never liked Roussel. Boucher did some good things here but he is what he is. a fringe starter, mainly a backup goaltender.
Its too bad Niitty couldnt stay healthy. I think that was some bad luck. I thought he was going to be a good goalie for us.
Of course we were lucky we were able to find Bob. I dont think many people figured he would do as well as he did in his first year. Yeah he had some issues later on, but I think with some right goalie coaching he could of got back on track here. Too bad management gave up on him to quick.
