Let's see if Sather gets a veteran backup goalie now. Tortorella is certainly asking for one.

Sounds like a distraction to me.

There are more pressing issues than a backup goalie.

Exactly.

Like the fact this team cant implement seemingly any portion of Tortorella's system.

Whining about a backup goalie seems awfully irrelevant.

it will be whoever throughout the year. I would say Johnson if they need one, Zaba is just going to sit around plus Vally will likely come back up even if he has been playing like Garbage in the A

10 goals in 2 games isnt going to get him back up to the NHL anytime soon.
the backup goalie situation sure is "a mess" however like everyone says, there are far bigger fish to fry. regardless of who's in net you still need to score more than 2 goals to win on most nights. Glad to see torts is so consumed with this issue

Lack of attention to the "little things" usually leads to larger problems. If a coach is not comfortable playing the backup goalie, then sooner or later it will come back and haunt the organization. Better to deal with it when it's a little thing. Cheaper too.

torts wants a legit backup so he can stick it to hank. you can kinda tell that the two are clashing. hank is the franchise, if this rift becomes a serious problem, torts is gonna need to go....otherwise, let coach finish the season

I have yet to see one piece of evidence to prove this is true with Hank and Torts so till then I consider this a board rumor, not fact.

Torts said Henrik is the only one that played. Yeah, they're clashing.

That's not evidence (either way) about their relationship, that's the truth.

I think it has more to do with the fact that The Olympics are coming up and he'd like to give Hank more rest.

Torts has been crapping on players left and right, but I agree with him on this, and actually think the backup goaltender concerns are a bigger deal than some of the people here would like to think.

I'm sure Tortorella would rather have Johan Holmqvist as his goalie...
