Most Disappointing Homegrown Avalanche Goalie

I was just wondering who everyone thought, between the time of Roy retiring and us picking up Varlamov and Giguere, which goalie prospect or homegrown goalie was the most disappointing to the fans.

If I missed any please do say so. Also remember homegrown goalies. Not looking for Raycroft or Elliot or Theodore

I went with Weiman, not that he was expected to do anything, but Budaj was a decent backup for us and Aebischer played fairly well for us before we traded him for a 6 million dollar benchwarmer.

For me personally it was better the Swiss Cheese, Boods, and Sauve

EDIT: Went with Swiss Cheese, I believed everyone that he would make it seem like Roy never left

Budaj, I thought he would have been better than he turned out to be, but I still think he's a very serviceable back up.

I'm more disappointed that we didn't get to see more of Kolesnik. He wasn't great, but he was fun to watch.

I cannot believe that Aebischer is polling even with Sauve.

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.

I had high hopes for Marc Denis, thought he would become a legit #1 for the Avs long term.

Sauve comes in at a close 2nd though. A lot of hype for that kid when he came in.

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.

For me it's gotta be Tyler Weiman for sure. I thought he would be so much more than a goaler bouncing around in Europe.

Abby and Budaj to me were always backup goaler that were put in terrible situations.

He really was one of those awesome stories that don't come around often.

I remember that I wanted Sauve to become such a great goaler, but his first game in the league he was such a sieve.

Aebischer is the only correct answer.

Lotta people thought we wouldn't suffer too much when Roy retired because we had him.

Sauve was always promoted as our goalie of the next 10 years. It's him by a landslide.

I always thought Kolesnik wasn't given a fair chance, do we still own his rights if he ever comes back? He would make a good back up when Giguere retires.

I thought Marc Denis was going to be better then he turned out being. When he went to Columbus I thought they got a good starter.

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 the hype train was in full force after Wieman won MVP of the CHL back in like 2006. I thought he'd at least be a backup in the league.

The other goalies had promise, but I really thought Abby was gonna pull it off and be something special. Especially after that SJ series where he looked amazing.

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.
