This is not a player I wanted to see coming to one of "my teams." Consistency is a big issue here. When he's on his game, he's not as good as Turco, but when he's off, he's WAY worse. Has a tendency to let in soft goals on nights where they will kill you. I was very surprised when the Canucks first called up Auld. Can't believe he's still in the big leagues. It's worked out in a way, as the Moose have been blessed with a string of solid goaltenders ever since.

Too bad the Stars couldn't have landed Justin Pogge, Kari Lehtonen, maybe even Karri Ramo.

Lehtonen is a starting goaltender and probably wouldn't come to Dallas to play behind Turco, and those other two guys suck.

generally backup goaltenders are somewhat inconsistent, it's kind of the reason they're backups and not starters

Ottawa fans reported that soft goals rarely, if ever, were a problem for Auld. Pogge is the King of Soft Goals. So uh, yeah.

Pretty sure Ramo signed to play in the KHL, didn't he?

Or was that Helenius?

And yeah, Pogge's crap, I've seen him enough times on TV with the Leafs, and live with the Marlies.....not that Rask will be a world-beater, but the Leafs most likely signed Gustavsson to take the job Pogge had been trying to get.

Ramo.

He smartly realized that competing with Mike Smith is futile.

Kari only played in 46 games last year, so I was wondering if maybe he'd consider being a backup... butyeah, behind Marty he'd probably only see 7 games lol.

I threw Pogge in there because he should get older and better. He has had international success.

What's odd is that when Auld plays in the NHL and AHL in the same season, he is average in the AHL and great in the NHL. When he doesn't play in both leagues in the same season, his NHL numbers drop. Too bad we can't get away with sending him down!

It's no different then Turco's soft five hole goals, which weren't the defenses fault last year like one person will say. Auld can allow those goals at a far cheaper price then Turco. Auld is far better positionally then Turco. Turco's downfall will continue, because his positioning in the net was always poor, he relies on athletic ability as opposed to positioning.

Pogge and Ramo aren't as good as Auld. Lehtonen is better then Auld, when he's actually healthy which is rare.

Auld's strength is his size. I believe he is 6-3 and is quite athletic for his size. He is a great first shot goalie who gives precious little to shoot at. As long as he has help in the crease, he's a gem for a #2 goalie.

Also, as others have noted, he's a great team guy. There were no media or lockerroom issues backing up a very, very poor goalie in Martin Gerber. Gerber was garbage for Ottawa, but Auld bided his time and was very solid for good stretches in the schedule.

Auld will be a great back-up. He's not suited to be a #1 guy but he's efficient enough to keep him in the NHL. Auld for a 7th rounder is a great trade, IMO. It's doubtful he'll be with the Stars for the long-term which is perfect with Bachman coming up the system. Pogge isn't an NHL goalie yet so there would be no sense getting him when the Stars needed a NHL calibre back-up for the year.

This is a ridiculous post, as a goalie living in Ottawa, watching most Senators games this past season you are so far off. I will admit he was somewhat inconsistent but that was simply a back up goaltender being overworked. He is not intended to play big minutes behind a weak defensive team and he was the sole bright spot in Ottawa many nights.

As a Stars and Senators fan I am very happy the Stars acquired him, he brings a great attitude to the locker room and I'm sure him and Marty will get along very well. He also performs when he is called upon.

As for Pogge, he will never be NHL calibre, hard to believe you still think that and want him over Auld, Kari Lehtonen is a starting goalie with a 4+ million dollar price tag (and might cost a little more than a 7th rounder for us), and as for Ramo, he is, in no light, a better goalie than Auld.

What confuses me is how someone can question his consistency with a Carey Price avatar

You don't even have a clue about Auld!
