Aebischer looks exceptional so far. I believe that will continue throughout the regular season. However, you simply do not know what kind of goaltender you have until the playoffs. For that reason the media, fans and everyone else will question Abby until he shows he can win during the playoffs. So it's going to be a long season of people questioning him, of fans going overboard saying he's the answer, of fans saying he has to go because he's been mediocre etc... Basically the whole spectrum of opinions will be voiced in regards to Abby. In the end none of us really know what Abby can accomplish as a goaltender until we see him at center stage in the playoffs. He can be fantastic during the regular season and crash in the playoffs, that has been demonstrated by other goaltenders in the league on numerous occasions. He can be mediocre during the regular season and brilliant in the playoffs. We've also seen this with other goaltenders in the NHL before. So, there will be a lot of threds like this throughout the season but the simple yet unsatisfying answer simply is, "we have to wait and see". The only thing that can change this is if Abby performs poorly in the first half of the season. That will lead to Sauve getting the chance or Abby being traded, if not both.
