He'll be UFA, but capgeek doesn't update Group 6 free agents until after the season.

Too bad we could use him now.

Nothing wrong with trading for a guy and getting some exclusive negotiating time before he hits the market. Who knows, it worked with Andy, right?

2012-13: Anderson-Bishop (give Lehner another full year in the AHL)
2013-14: Anderson- Bishop/Lehner (if Lehner wins the job, it's his... if not, Bishop is still an insurance plan)
2014/15: Anderson/Lehner (Lehner/Anderson?)

ITT: Sexism. Stay classy.

Lehner usually plays well under pressure, it'll be interesting to see how he handles this situation (should he be called up, of course.)

No worries. It's not like we would've won the Cup this year in any case. First year of a rebuild, learning year, and all that.

It just shows why it's always a good idea to give your backup a decent number of games during the season to keep him sharp. You just never know what's around the corner.

Our backup is in the AHL, he should be sharp.

I thought Bishop is wanting a chance at being a #1 and not being stuck behind Anderson that can play 60+ games.

Well this does suck. But we just need to have teams start under estimatining us. And I guess we will see how our d is gonna be.

I guess this means lehner might be on his way up? Could be where he shows his stuff like in the playiffs last year..

Things are going to get interesting!

Khabibulin has another year on his contract at 3.75m. We aren't going to get a backup with term. If we are, it sure as hell wouldn't be Khabibulin.

I think you guys are being too pessimistic

Sure it's bad, but no where near as bad as the consensus seems to think.

Honestly the way the team has played as of recently, they will still win games if their play keeps up as they really have been dominant... But it is a touch worrisome with the next few weeks and the great pressure wi will have. Interested to see what happens... It will be back to cardiac issues for me.

No kidding, what's the worst that could happen to a team playing a few weeks with one of the NHL's weaker backups? Some of you are really underrating Andy's ability to make the important save. Who's to say his huge glove save at 3-0 wasn't the reason the Caps couldn't come back in the game. The fact is Auld isn't a reliable option long term, regardless of how he's improved his play as of late.

Ehh we're by no means secure in the playoff race, losing our #1 and replacing him with Auld/AHL goalie could go badly. Plus, 8 weeks would have him coming back mid-April, probably just as the playoffs are beginning, so if we made it in we'd be starting an ice cold Anderson at the most important time of the season.

These next 8 weeks are make or break for this team, lets see what Lehner's made of

We might as well start Lehner against Boston.
