Sauve? I never knew anyone expected him to be anything.
My vote goes to Aebischer, it has to. The others are either non-entities or Budaj, who at least had good moments.

Really? I used to always hear "wait until you see Sauve, he's gonna be good". Aebischer actually reached my expectations. Too bad his career fizzled once he went to Montreal.
Exactly. People actually forget that in his first season taking over for Roy, Aebischer posted the following numbers: 32-19-9 with a 2.09 GAA and a .924 SV%
That's not too shabby
It was the beginning of his 2nd year being the full time starter that people remember most I believe. Because he was a bit inconsistent, but he did start to get his game back on track leading upto his trade to Montreal.
I went with Kolesnik simply because i thought he was going to be beastly from his first stint. I never read the entire description which states AFTER Roy left. In this case I have to go with abby. He didn't turn into what I expected but i still have the most respect for him as he was arguably the most consistant backup in the league for years.
I remember hearing about how amazing Sauve was going to be and how he was going to be the number one to take over the reigns.
Personally, I always thought Aebi was going to be a solid number 1 that the team could depend upon to bring a consistent level of play. He did pretty good his first full year, but kind of fell apart the beginning of his second year. He got traded just as he was putting it together again.
