All I know is that both Poulin and Nilsson have both been extremely underwhelming in the AHL this season. If we are going into next season with one of them as our starter with DP as our backup, I will not be too confident about our goalie situation.

My first choice would be to bring Nabokov back. My second choice would be to offer Anaheim a package for Jonas Hiller, who will be one year away from UFA status, hoping that they like Gibson enough to make him available.

Continue the Swiss connection.

Either we have the worst defense in the AHL or they both just suck because they have some of the worst numbers among goalies in the AHL.

I'm just wondering when Poulin or Nilsson will ever be ready. Poulin especially has gotten several looks but he still seems ages away from getting a real chance.

The longer we wait the more I doubt both of them.

I wouldn't judge their upside on their AHL numbers. Both of them have looked pretty good at the NHL level in their breif appearances. Poulin before that injury, and Nilsson in his few games this past season. I wouldn't be shocked if one of them turns into a solid #1, although it would obviously be a lot safer to look elsewhere.

This is also a reason why I wanted the Isles to draft Vasilevski. In case neither of Poulin or Nilsson had separated themselves, or in a situation where both of them flop we'd have some sort of backup plan waiting in the wings. Unfortunately he went a lot earlier than I anticipated(19th overall).

We also have Mikko Koskinen too who we seem to be toying around with.

He's a terrible goalie, only seems good because the team in front of him, since his first full season he's posted a .908 and .920 save percentage, not all impressive for a team that won 47 and 48 games respectively...look at the numbers for goalies on other teams with those number of winds and you'll see mid 920s to low 930s.

i just cant see wang ever buying out dp. I think he will try to reintegrate those dp millions by making dp part owner after his career bet he is constantly telling dp not to spend too much!

I would offer a package for Bernier in the future

I would like to see Viktor Fasth here. He is a very good goalie. He is a "late-bloomer(?)" just like Thomas. I think he got 5-8 years left in the NHL, and I think he can be a starter somewhere.

One funny thing is that both Fasth and Thomas has played in AIK in Sweden.

Only seen him play one game but I thought the same thing.

I've seen him play a number of times in the SEL and in the Swedish national team. He is always solid.

Another funny thing is that he has been playing for Brooklyn Tigers. A local team from Luleå, up north in Sweden.

im not sold on either Poulin or Nilsson being ready for a starting role next season, if nabokov does good this year, i think he should be extend one more year. i have seen a lot of good from the both of them, but their subpar numbers this year concern me.

I don't think anyone in their right mind saw the Boston game and thinks that DiPietro will ever be a starter in the NHL again. The guy can't even get up when he goes down. He has almost zero lateral movement. The Bergeron goal was just embarrassing.

I hope not. Next year will be crucial to the Isles taking the next step. Doing that with 3 rookie goalies would be a big mistake, IMO.

It's been a weird start to the season.

We need to push the goaltending question back half of a year..

I know he's only played a handful of games in 2013 but it's already completely obvious: we need to open negotiations with Nabokov, right now.

Give him a $2 million raise. Hell, since it's Wang's money - give him $3 million more!

Then let Poulin, Nilsson and Koskinen all have the fair opportunity in a proper NHL training camp and pre-season and let our staff figure out if we've got something in any of those three or not.. then go from there..

What that being said Richie what do you think the chances are he gets bought out? That seems to be the 1 and only solution. Maybe Mike Milbury can get another GM gig and take him off our hands since he is convinced Ricky should be playing more

You mean THE BREAKAWAY? You are almost as bad as Dee Karl over at Hockeybuzz blaming a goalie for a breakaway goal, lmfao!! You haven't posted many absurd things before but on a breakaway a very subtle move can make a big difference in a goalies momentum and that's all that happened there. DP bit on a little fake and still almost got to the post in time. You are using a horrible example....

With that said, DP has definitely NOT proven he is starter material and unless things drastically change (still have a lot of games left) he will remain a back up option going into next year. It would be great if we could resign Nabby...but i'm leery of that being a possibility. I think we will have to sign a veteran free agent (similar to Nabby's status) in order to get someone in net. If not we are looking at inserting one of the two headed rookies and it's a risk. I think Poulin looks more ready than Nilsson, even though the latter will be the more talented in the end. We'll see...

Ricky is no longer a starter but he did good in the Boston game. The only goal I think he should of had was the Chara one.

I don't think he played awful either but lets face it he is now at best a back up goalie.

You'll see one of them. Not both.

I think we're underrating Koskinen. He has been very good in Finland. He might even be better than Poulin and Nilsson... Not sure.

I'd really like to see him here in camp next season, I like Koskinen and feel like he has some potential.

They're goaltenders. They're not forwards (or even defensemen). Not sure how quickly you're expecting goaltenders to develop?

edit: Also people are forgetting how goaltenders stop playing well: it's all of a sudden. It's not a gradual decrease. There's many reasons why-but we don't know when Nabby will get there-but he's no spring chicken. I don't think we should bank on him for next year. I fear it might be DP.
