IMHO You are correct and last year he was better as well. He is not a huge guy but is faster and has the 'glove' DeKort doesn't have BUT DeKort was a 2nd round pick and it wouldn't have looked good on WR and the scouting staff if he had beaten out DeKort.
That being said I just can't see DeKort as the #1 goaltender on the Spits next year. What I can see is Pavelka getting traded or staying home to play for $$$ in Europe and DeKort being traded.
So where does that leave us? My guess is we pick up an OHL vet in a trade and have him and Kuchemy fight for minutes. Doesn't sound too appealing but it would be just a stop-gap measure on a team that I expect will not get the memorial cup bid (we find out in April). Once the Spitfire Mgmt has all the Season tickets sales they can get, the dismantling of the team as we know it will begin. Some of it before the season and the balance at trade deadline time......
