Back-up, but I would not be suprised if he took a starting role.

Backup, maybe a starter. I have him as backup to Maxime Ouellet in NHL 2004. He's not doing bad.

I think Lassila is done for the Preds. He couldn't cut it at camp this year, and we actually picked a guy up on waivers to fill the backup role, and let Finley take over as costarter for Milwaukee.

He'll backup Vokoun for the next 5 years and become a Manny Legace type IMO...

Don't you mean Lasak? We just drafted Lassila in the 2003 draft.

Finley could be a great starter, but more than likely a good soild dependable started in a few years

Yes, yes I did . I'm guess that one caught me by surprised, as I never expected anyone to mention Lassilia.......first guy that came to mind was Lasak, as he was supposed to be the backup this year. And I'll echo NMK's post on this one. Finley needs at least a year as a complete starter before coming to the NHL....Mason is fine, IMO, and Vokoun loves huge workloads.

Hmm, hard to tell. If he works on his game really-hard, he could be a starter. It looks rgiht now he'll be a Back-up, but you never know.
