I know exactly what will happen if Brodeur signs. The first few games that Halak will struggle (obviously in November), everyone will be clamoring for Brodeur's veteran mysticism and winniness. Then when Brodeur plays poorly a whole bunch of excuses will be made for him (he plays well when he gets 4 games rest and doesn't play back to back!). Isles finish 34-37-11.

If Snow can't get a backup easily then he deserves any and all of the poop he gets for it.

He's more like Poulin and Nilsson.

I'll take a journeyman like Greiss, Peters, etc...

His Sv% has dropped every year. Last season his sv% was well below the average backup sv% (and below Nilsson!). Am I missing something?

He's been brutal since he joined the Lightning.

I just went on the TB board. Yeah, pass as an NHL backup. Maybe bring him in to play at the Bridge if we lose Poulin.

Lindback is better than Poulin and Nilsson.....but that's not saying much.

Some players just don't fit in certain organizations for whatever reason. Plus he'd be a backup.

If we didn't have the Vanek trade to worry about I would take a chance. I believe he could be one of those goalies who turns his A-game up when he is 25ish. That being said to much risk given our situation

Funny thing....Montoya went to pot after his injuries and after time looked solid. Maybe never gonna be a tandem or starter but NHL goods. Poulin had his injury set back. Last year was erratic. I'd hold onto him and let him play in the Bridge just to see if he gets back on the horse or not.

I am so thankful Nilsson gets to play in Europe to develop. I haven't written either off. Koskinen as well.

But next year I'd welcome Monty or better.

Pass on Lindback... last thing we need is Nilsson 2.0. Tall, underachieving goalie that doesn't use his size to his advantage.

I'd rather trade for Reimer if he's cheap, or sign Greiss or Montoya.

I agree, if the last few years have taught us anything, it's the importance of a halfway-decent backup goalie. This team can't afford to take on a project like Lindback, who has been getting worse instead of better, and hope he turns it around. Would much rather see Montero brought back, he put up surprisingly good numbers with WPG last year. Greiss is a solid option as well.
