I hope Boosh plays well in his chance.
that would be funny. anyone else remember his like 51 save effort or something against the Sabres in the playoffs several years ago? i believe we ended up losing that game by a final score of like 2-1 or something but that was one of the best games i've ever seen a goalie play. i specifically remember a save he made with the knob of his stick on a 2 on 1 i believe. wow my memory is fuzzy

I am pretty sure the jets lit up Boosh on Canes last yr, but it was auto loss with MFL, so this is positive news. Must win tomm in TO.

bring up Heeter? the guy can barely keep up in the ECHL/AHL right now

Boosh sucking or MFL sucking. Doesn't matter. Both are garbage.

I don't want to wear out Bryz but I seriously wouldn't mind if he played in both of the back-to-backs. He has shown he can handle a heavy workload in Phoenix so I figure why not? Whether it's Boosh or Leighton we will almost be guaranteed to lose.

Eh, before he was sent down the the AHL, he had a few games where he looked better than both Boosh and Monroe. He was bringing his game around and then they demoted him.

Boosh will be ok. he's a fine backup goalie who handles the pressure well and does not mind being thrown in there over night. He does not have the consistency to carry a team but he can look decent for short stretches and he is a good guy in the locker room.

No need to panic!

But heres the thing. He isnt a fine backup anymore. He was fine 3 years ago. Right now, he is barely fine in the AHL. Honestly, I dont even trust him during games here and there. We will have to win the games Bryz is playing because Boosh wont play like Bryz will (obviously)

The most notable guys left, I believe, are Andrew Raycroft, Ty Conklin, and Antero Nittymaki. I look at those three and don't see more than what we have now. Conklin's the only one I would lean towards of the three.

I agree, I think this is more of being a team guy and not letting his ego get in the way.

Niitty is in Finland if i'm not mistaken and is most likely set to retire cause of his hip problems.

Horizontal move. I lack faith in Boosh these days.

We have the worst goalie depth in the league after Bryz.

I wouldn't be shocked in the slightest. This organization has a baffling fixation on this guy.

Sadly, yes. Surprising? No.

Better off having him than Leighton. He may not be what he was, but he's still more likely to actually play well out of the two.

I miss Bob.

I'm not sure where we are with the contract limit, but what about claiming Joey MacDonald (DET) on waivers? I'd imagine he'd be an upgrade on Boosh at this point in his career.

The guy has been stealing money from the team for the last 3 years, what is homer's infatuation with the guy? He's been trolling his own fanbase for the last 3 years with this guy, seriously why???
