Don't shoot me, but I'm seriously considering the possibility that Anderson himself is the goalie this organization should go forward with, even beyond his current contract. Look at the Canucks' goalie situation. Cory Schneider is apparently their goalie of the future and was drafted in 2004 but is STILL waiting to fully take over the job. I mean, it's possible that Lehner plays yet another season in the AHL and then plays a couple seasons in Ottawa as a backup until Anderson is clearly past it.

I'm seeing it now: the Senators will have their own GOOD goaltending problem with Anderson and Lehner in the near future. Anderson has gone from a band-aid solution to a legitimate stud and Lehner is a future stud.
I don't think there should be a "timeline" as to when Lehner takes over. They'll both probably be the tandem in Ottawa in a year and then we'll see who outplays who for the starting position.

Is it just me or does Anderson always have 2-3 shots that go right through the crease each game because of his style? Don't get me wrong, I think he's a good goalie and i've watched almost every game of his this year (have him in my pool), but I just find his style so awkward.

As for losing Anderson, like mentioned before it got us Landeskog. The Avs management and him didn't see eye to eye in contract negotiations either so he would've walked anyways, and he did seem to give up the last 10 games before he was traded. At that juncture of time, his value was pretty low and I doubt we would've got more than a late 2nd.

Tremendous goalie. Really like the job he has done thus far with this team.

This team would be in the basement if it wasn't for Andersson.

I think he gets a mulligan this game. The game was tied 2-2 and things were looking good going into the 3rd. But after that injury I don't see how the team can focus on the game. They knew it, Andy knew it, MacLean knew it. Hopefully they can clear their minds and maybe let Bishop get thrown to the wolves on Saturday vs the Leafs.

I don't think we can have a proper Craig Anderson Appreciation thread without at least bringing up these two "Blast-from-the-past" threads.

- The "Elliott traded for Anderson" thread, and
- Anderson re-signs with Ottawa, 4 years/$12.75mil

Enjoy!

Ha! Some gems in there...

And I am proud to say in both those threads, I was ecstatic when we traded for him and ecstatic when we re-signed him. Now I only wish we gave him one of those Bryzgalov-length deals at $3.5 million. This guy is the greatest steal deal in the NHL.

I loves me some Andy!

I think Bryzgalov-length deals seem to tempt the hockey gods.

The Anderson extension thread is amazing. Quite a few upset people.

I still can't believe he was had for "Brian Elliott".

I think he loves the chants and being "the" guy.

He feeds off it, and he'll be a legend in this town if he continues.

That's what always surprised me about hockey players.

You go to a Canadian city, and they will remember one save, one goal, for the rest of the city's history.

I can say "Joe Corvo goal" and most people I know will appreciate what that is.

Isn't that worth giving up a few extra bucks for?

Nailed it. A lot of guys can't handle that pressure, but guys with mental constitutions like Anderson's just thrive on it. He loves being the guy, Sens fans love having A guy after years and years of no guy, and when he finally hands the crease over to Lehner he'll have spent years learning from the guy.

I'm legitimately excited about our future in the crease, and it all starts with Anderson going beast mode night in and night out. What a steal of a trade/contract extension.

I don't care what anyone says. Considering the team he's had in front of him and the amount of big-game moments this guy has given us, he's the best goalie to don a Senators jersey. I love this guy. A total gamer.

Andy is obviously an amazing goalie, but he's also really humble and down to earth. He seems taken away by the love he gets here.
