And if Irving couldn't play better than Taylor or Brust to earn time, it's no ones fault but his own. I've never been particularily impressed with Irving. He;s been given years to step up his game and snatch a spot, never been able to. In the last few seasons, if he played well enough to be an AHL starter, he would have been.

Irving just didn't pan out, and won't likely become anything better thana backup.

One of the reasons I want to take Fucale at 28 if he's still there. No guarantee Brossoit/Ortio will pan out, and Ramo/Berra, while not old, are mid to late 20s, so they'd be winding down a bit when the guys like Brossoit/Fucale are getting ready, considering goalies usually aren't ready until at least 24 or so.
