Aubin can be solid at times, but his mental game is lacking. If he gives up one iffy goal, he completely falls apart and lets in a couple more. I'm not sure what the added media attention will do for his confidence.

He played decent for St. John's so I fully expect him in a Marlies uniform this fall

Really? You've haven't seen Aubin play a lot I see. Aubin is incredibly inconsistent, often having problems with goaltending fundamentals like cutting angles and, my favorite, stopping pucks.

2.87?

I've seen a lot worse - plus he had a .921 save percentage.

Regardless, if (when?) Belfour goes down for any significant length of time, I won't have a ton of confidence in either Aubin or Tellqvist to hold the fort.

That quote was when he was an NHL goalie.

The 3.13-3.56 GAA, .880 save percentage days.

Yeah but Those numbers were greatly inflated because Pitts dropped the poor kid right into the frying pan..... Kinda like NY Rangers did with Dan Blackburn... Are they bad goalies because of there numbers? I dont think so I just think they never had the chance to be brought along and devolip like they should have and maybe today we would be having a different kind of conversation about these kids... IMO they could still turn out to be solid backups... I dont see much more from either Telly or Aubin. I also dont have a problem with either starting a 8-10 games this season.. To give Eddie a break..

Aubin wasn't a starter until he was 22-23. I don't see the correllation with Dan Blackburn who was starting as an 18-year-old.

Aubin's GAA was greatly inflated by his inability to stop pucks.

Gold. Though I think you've underrated him personally as he was fantastic though a bit inconsistent for the Marlies this year.

I heard Tom Barrasso threw him down a flight of stairs.

He seemed like a decent enough guy, and I wish him well in Toronto, but seeing him in net always made me nervous.

I'm not sure how many of Aubin's problems were caused by technique or confidence. What killed me about him was his inability to make the "big save." You know the one, your team has just scored to take the lead, or pull with-in one and the rush goes the other way, well it usually ended up being a momentum killing goal. Aside from a stretch of games last year, the Pens were often winning in spite of Aubin, rather than because of him.

Something like Lalime...oops sorry, did I hit a sore spot? Hey, no worry, your goaltending situation is finally fixed now.

Was Aubin the goalie Barrasso refused to sit on the bench as backup for?

Lets just say Barrasso wasn't all that subtle in telling Aubin that he sucked.
