I know everyone wants Alvaro to back stop Henrik next year, but I´m not sure if it will do him good if he plays for let´s say 25 games and then rusts for the rest of the season. It definetly will give him a taste of the big league, but I´d 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 wasn´t that bad as people make him out to be.
I personally think Kevin is the best backup option right now.
So in conclusion I´d sign Weekes for another year (with a much smaller paycheck).
Am I the only one feeling this way?
Long story short. NYR needs to win and god forbid Henk goes down,weekes is not the man to help this team win.
I would rather, and actually always liked Valliquette,so Im more than fine with him.
So to your question ,NONONONONNONONONONONO to Weekes,NO!
