Hopefully, they can build off the 2nd half of their season last year and use that to make the playoffs next year. I know, according to Bowman, the Icehogs making the playoffs or not isn't a huge deal to them, but I'm pretty sure he'd rather them in the playoffs than not - they have a better chance at doing that with an experienced goaltender than a 21-year-old.

The goaltending depth chart should look like this next year:

1. Crawford
2. Raanta
3. Hutton/Experience AHL goaltender
4. Simpson
5. Carruth
