Would you take Weekes as a backup if....

he would sign a contract where he earns a lot less than what he is getting right now?

I know everyone wants Alvaro to back stop Henrik next year, but Im not sure if it will do him good if he plays for lets say 25 games and then rusts for the rest of the season. It definetly will give him a taste of the big league, but Id rather have Montoya develope one more year down in Hartford.

I know a lot of heads will explode thinking about Weekes being back with us but honestly the only problem I had with him was the money he was getting. He is a great guy on and off the ice, handled the situation with Henke very well without moaning (he was hired to be our Number 1 and then a rookie got his spot). And he wasnt that bad as people make him out to be.
I personally think Kevin is the best backup option right now.

So in conclusion Id sign Weekes for another year (with a much smaller paycheck).
Am I the only one feeling this way?
