Weekes was signed originally just to give us some respectable goaltending during a period of transition. Then last year happened--unexpected success with Henrik pretty much taking away the top job from him. Now we're fighting for our lives and Kevin is running out of a future with us anyway--there's no point in playing him now except in an emergency. He's nowhere near as good as Henrik and in a close game that goes into overtime I'd feel much more comfortable about our chances of getting the extra point in a shootout with Lunqvist in the net. Kevin has been a good locker room guy and sometimes he's even played well but he's inconsistent and definitely not worth the 2 million we're giving him. He's a player that I would look to move before the deadline and if that were to happen moving Montoya up as our backup. He has a future.
