What will Mathieu Garon achieve this season (you can vote for more than one)?
-Take the starting job from Roman Cechmanek
-single-handedly lead the Kings into the playoffs
-Go to the all-star game
-carry the Kings to the stanley cup finals
-win a stanley cup
-play well as Roman Cechmanek's backup
As a habs fan their were times last year where I was hoping Garon would play
instead of Theodore, because I still find theodore to be a streaky goaltender
where as Garon seems to be much more consistent which is even more impressive
givin that he hardly played back to back games if any at all..In fact i think he
only played about 14 games in total.
But to answer your question I think he will start out as the back-up but by the
end of the year he will be the starter, as for carrying them into the playoffs and beyond????
Kipper Part II! How many games did Kipper play the year before last? Wasn't he in the A most of the time? Garon was at one time considered a better prospect than Theodore, according to the Hockey News yearbook. He is 2 years younger, and has been in that shadow for a while. Now he gets his chance!
