Exactly the reasoning on why he should be in Rockford. He is going to be much more babied at the NHL level just because of our defensive skills. Any given day up with the big club Raanta could see 10 less shots than he would with Rockford. LaBarbera is certainly done developing and is a stop gap measure. I don't like him for a long term solution but having him on as backup for Crawford wont be too terrible.

Then again, theres only 14 games left in the AHL season so maybe this is something to think about next season when he's resigned.
