Really glad we got rid of this guy

http://theahl.com/in-brust-we-trust-p180479

Brust would have really helped Bingo stay competitive last season as well as mentoring Lehner. Not taking anything away from McKenna but I would have taken Brust back in a heartbeat. Now he's out there doing all the work so in the post season he can get benched. I wish him my best and hope he wins another Calder Cup.

In Brust we trust
November 24, 2012

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. ... Abbotsford Heat goaltender Barry Brust made American Hockey League history on Saturday night, establishing a new league record for longest shutout streak.

Brust held the San Antonio Rampage off the scoreboard into the second period of their game at the AT&T Center in San Antonio, Texas, before finally allowing a goal to Rampage forward James Wright, ending his shutout run at 268 minutes and 17 seconds. That surpassed the previous AHL record of 249:51, established by Hockey Hall of Famer Johnny Bower with the Cleveland Barons in 1957.

Brust began his streak on Oct. 20, shutting out the Chicago Wolves over the last 51:41 of the game after allowing a first-period goal to Zack Kassian. Brust then recorded three consecutive shutouts, blanking Toronto on Nov. 1 and Lake Erie on Nov. 13 and 14, and broke Bower’s record with 1:49 left in the first period in San Antonio on Saturday.

Brust, who finished Saturday’s 3-2 shootout win with 26 saves, is now 5-0-0 on the season with a 0.59 goals-against average and a .978 save percentage, stopping 131 of 134 shots overall. The 29-year-old native of Swan River, Man., is 101-71-9 in 196 career AHL games, and was a member of the Binghamton Senators’ Calder Cup championship team in 2010-11.

In setting a record that stood for nearly 55 years, Bower – a three-time AHL MVP and three-time Calder Cup champion in his career – helped Cleveland to a 2-2 tie with the Buffalo Bisons on Nov. 27, 1957, before shutting out the Hershey Bears (Nov. 30), Springfield Indians (Dec. 1) and Hershey again (Dec. 5). His streak was ended by Buffalo’s Lou Jankowski on Dec. 7.
Cue the "Oh god Main we have to hear this again" replies.

I think Lehner has done just fine without Brust in the organization.

In all honesty, Barry said mid-season mind you, that he was going overseas the next season regardless..that, plus Ottawa management wanted him to get in shape and lose some weight, in which Barry said "ya whatev"..as he was packing his skoal

We should've kept Elliott and Brust and have the best goaltending in the history of hockey.

Meh, career minor leaguers are a dime a dozen. Its the A...who cares that much?

A winning environment is important, but the primary reason the AHL exists is to groom NHLers. Lehner needed time between the pipes. That is far more important.

Wow, you can never have too many goalies. The Murray's really messed up on this one. I can't believe it.

Fair point. If he's going to eat turnovers while Lehner works out daily then so be it. I'm just pretty impressed w/ his performance so far.

Brust didn't have an NHL future with us so no hard feelings with the Sens letting him go.

Yeah, if your mentors just laugh at the idea of fitness, that's probably not a good situation for the young guys to be brought into.

Can only echo what others have said. Good AHL goalie, but not an integral piece to the puzzle for the Ottawa Senators.

Yeah, I think we did the right thing here. No one could have ever saw this hot streak coming from Brust.

Brust playing for Abbotsford is like Elliott playing for the Blues. The defensive system makes him look better than he is.

imagine if Cowen was still playing. Lehner would have an extra 2 shut outs right now.

Top AHL Goalies so far this year:
1) Brust
2) Zatkoff
3) Lehner
4) Danny Taylor
5) McEhlinney
6) Dustin Tokarski
7) Scott Munroe
8) Dan Ellis
9) Martin Jones
10) Jeff Frazee

... that's a pretty motley list of very questionable goalies. I mean, it's literally, a few names aside, like looking at the Island of Misfit Goalies. The guy we replaced Brust with, McGoalie, is the 5th best goalie.

Being a 28 year old goalie and putting up good numbers is usually, at best, a golden ticket to getting a slightly higher paying gig in the SEL or some other league. Rarely does that translate into an NHL gig. For every Tim Thomas, there's 1000 random nobodies.

Loooooooooooooool, why are we even talking about Brust? Lehner is top 3-5 in every category in the AHL.

Also, Brust is playing in one of the best teams. Some other guy on that team has a 1.67 GAA with .937 in 9 games played to Brust's 5.

Lehner is also 7 years younger, lmao. If anything, Lehner would be mentoring Brust.

I was thinking in a mentoring perspective, nothing more. I was wondering how much better Lehner would have been last season if he was backing up Brust instead of McKenna. But the point about him not taking fitness seriously was unknown to me and I have admitted that on that condition I agree with his departure. I did not know about his work ethic (or lack thereof).

For me it comes back to the Calder Cup run. Brust lost the job and the teams confidence to Lehner. Afterward Brust had a chance at a starting job, a job he almost surely could not have got in tandem with Lehner.
