The most he's going to play next year is 25-30 games as an NHL backup, and that's only if they decide to bring him up rather than go with a veteran backup. They might think it's better to let him play 60 games in Hartford.
The point is he's probably never going to be our starter. And it doesn't make sense to keep such a valuable player if he's never going to play. He's going to be moved at some point, so we might as well do it when his value is at it's highest.
I don't know about that. Lundquist has been up and down this year. Not stellar by any means. If it continues, you never know.
