Goaltending 2013-14

I know its very early, but what do you expect for next season?

Lindback + who?

Why do you think Janus stats are that much better, while playing in a better league? The pressure to succed because of the guys behind him on the depthchart?
Might Janus be our back-up next year?
Will SY sign Garon for another year?

My answer:
I don't see Helenius getting a chance, so I expect him to go back to europe at the beginning of next season. Then SY will get Janus over and lets fight Janus and Tic for the backup role, while signing an great AHL goalie like Brust or Danis. Maybe he signs a guy like Khabibulin as well that is willing to sit most of the time but gets money (guys that might end their careers after the season)

I think you're probably spot on. At the same time I wouldn't mind an older backup to kind of mentor Anders and take some starts. Garon is also a very solid option.

Riku is on a one-way next year so it seems like he's on the fast track to the NHL next year but if Tic is the better goalie then he will most likely be the backup.

I don't really see why SFY shouldn't go with Garon next year.

I don't think that stops SFY from keeping him in the AHL or sending him back to Europe. They sent Kyle Wilson to Syracuse despite his one-way deal, too.

So yeah, I agree. The better goalie will get a chance regardless of the contract situation. If both don't perform as good as expected I could see Garon returning.

Yeah, if he's not cutting it SFY will not hesitate sending him through waivers if there's a clearly better option available.

Who do you prefer Janus or Tic right now? I lean toward Janus as he seems to be pretty consistent

I brought this up in the prospects thread this morning. I asked if we could swap Riku for Janus. I think we should bring up Tik and have Janus start in the A. Unless Tik continues putting up subpar numbers then we should go with a veteran backup and keep both in the A and see who takes the job.

I personally prefer Janus to Riku and Tik, but there are plenty of people who have watched more of each player than I have.

Something else worth noting - there's a sentiment afoot that suggests Vasilevskiy could be in Syracuse next year. If so, we're looking at quite a logjam, even if Garon isn't resigned.

Someone is getting traded then I'm sure.

****, have Vasilevski start next year. Let's see what he can do.

(Obviously joking, before anyone jumps on that).

Is Vasilevski allowed to play in the AHL ? He was drafted by a CHL team, otherwise this would be nice he is ready for sure as his numbers absolutly okay in the KHL

Yes he can play in the AHL. All players who are drafted out of their European clubs aren't held back by AHL age restrictions. The 6th pick in the draft Hampus Lindholm is playing in the AHL right now.

I get the impression we're the only ones high on Tokarski.

Tokarski should be next years backup, but I love Janus as well. Riku not so much.
