Going back to goaltending, are we saying that the starting job is Lindback's and we're talking about who is going to back him up? I'm more concerned over who will be the starting goalie next year. Lindback hasn't proven anything yet, Garon is a FA with a groin issue, Desjardins is a FA and unproven and Riku hasn't shown he's even a #1 at the AHL level.

What I'm getting at is if Lindback does not prove he's a #1 THIS year, we're in the same boat next year and I see that as a major concern. We have some good talent in the farm system, but they're probably still a couple years away. I'd rather have a temporary veteran starter and have Lindback being back up next year rather than crossing our fingers that someone is going to step up.

Maybe if the D is drastically improved, that may help, but I don't feel comfortable with Lindback right now as next year's #1. Reminds me a lot of "The Monster" Gustavsson.
