Glad Ullstrom is back in the AHL. Now swap Haley and Cizikas and Bridgeport will be much better.

So if Grahame plays a game this year, that would be 6 goalies used this year right?

We have to breaking records with consecutive seasons of using more than 3 goalies.

I agree with the other posters that it doesn't matter who the backup is but is it for the last 6 games or just day to day until nabby is back?Have they actually announced that Nabby is done for the season? Last i saw was day to day.

you know Grahame is going to come in for relief and not let up a goal for the remaining games, then he will get signed to a 3 yr deal at 3 mil per, just to keep it fun

was the starting goalie announced yet for tmro? if not, what is the general concencus about who will start.

I know it doesnt mean much now, but for fantasy playoffs this can be huge

Is there any chance that he gets a start? I would have thought NO for sure, but Montoya is not tearing it up, the team would be better off losing (the players won't tank, but starting a sub-par goalie would do the trick), and it might be a nice reward for a goalie that has not played in the NHL in a couple of years (not saying he deserves it, but Snow could have suggested it as a possibility when he signed). Still, I'd have to think the best he'll get is work if Montoya is relieved over the last few games.

Unless this is an elaborate April fools joke... looks like he is. Which I guess is fine... now that we are officially out might as well try to get a higher draft pick.

Lets not exaggerate, he spent this season coaching, before that he was playing for the last few seasons. It was AHL hockey, but he was playing nonetheless.

I'd much prefer to see Poulin for the final couple, at least give a reason to be excited for next year. Do it for the fans.

Poulin needs to stay in Bridgeport and get more playing time. Also Bridgeport is heading for the playoffs so that expierence will be good for him.
