No one is saying that.

All we have to go on is the evidence we have so far. Emery is our starter, but Gerber should provide solid goaltending when called upon so if anything happens either in season or in playoffs, we have 2 capable goalies behind us.

However, and yes...disclaimer for the cynical...depending on what happens in the playoffs, we can't afford to keep Gerber as a backup at his contract. So far Emery has proven a capable number one and is our future in goaltending. We'd be better served trading Gerber in the offseason and signing a good back-up goalie.

We lost to ATL, NYR and NJ in afternoon games but our record is better than last year. We have beaten PHI twice, MTL, BOS.

EDIT: we also lost a 5pm game to TB.

Gerber has proven that he's a quality NHL goalie; Emery has done well for many games this year but still not a lot as a quality starter. He's too volatile, I prefer
Gerber's poise.
A team needs two quality goalies, no need to trade one.....better to focus on getting more character amongst the forwards.

Well, in the offseason I would trade him depending on how the playoffs shake out.

he's to expensive to be a baclkup.. so he needs to be moved in the offseason UNLESS he can take over the #job, which is unlikely at this point.

I'm just not sure how this would happen without Emery completely tanking and endangering our playoff spot.

There are such thing as injuries.

Really, after Hasek, I won't be surprised by anything.

Well yeah, but injuries are unpredictable, so by predicting Gerber will be the starter he's obviously not talking about via injury to Emery.

Exactly. Because if it is Emery that tanks, we don't know what will happen.

Barring any potential injuries, i believe the sens are going into the playoffs with the strongest goaltending we have had yet. Hasek was injured last year so he cannot be included in this regard.

It will be up to both goaltenders to play their best, and consistently provide the team a chance to win each game. Playoff success will also require either Emery or Gerber to steal a game or two each series.

It would be great if Gerber can win these next 2 games here, and ten get few more games while Emery get the bulk of work. Emery is a young buck on a roll, and the more he plays the better he will develop and get I think.

If Gerber can finish with better than .500 record for the season and end up with winning record - something like 11-2-2 record since his early season struggles - then that would give us some much needed leverage to trade him to another team at the draft for a draft pick and save that 3.7 mill which we could desperatly use towards Phillips/Emery as well as Preissing.
