Good News on Thibault's Injury

http://www.post-gazette.com/pg/05285/587001.stm

He will practice Wednesday and may be ready to play by Saturday, which is when he is eligible to come off IR.

Good news would be, he's out for the season and Fleury would have to start 60 games....

Just kidding, good to hear T-Bo returns soon.

I kinda rather Fleury play a little bit more. Maybe like 2-3 more starts.

My guess is Fleury will stick around for a while, maybe even split time with Thibault for a bit.

But we'll need to send him down on the occasions that Thibault is on a hot streak to get him the necessary starts he needs.

Doubtful since Caron would have to clear waivers to be sent down and would the pens really want to have 3 goalies on the roster? My bet is Fleury makes the start Friday, and then Tbo on Sat if he's ready with Fleury being sent back down.

I think at this point, Caron would clear waivers.

The teams looking for goalies are few and far between now and if they wanted one they would get Noronen from Buffalo.

Thats a big chance to take, one I'm not in favor of. Phoenix could just as easily snatch him up to use since both their starter and backup are injured if they were so inclined.

Sure there is a chance, but teams needing a short term fix will not take Caron as they will have the same problem when their goalies get healthy.

Phoenix is fine with LeNeveu. He is their future #1 and was the backup to Fleury in the WJC for Canada.

There are a few teams actively looking for a goalie. Maybe Atlanta (short term), Phoenix (short term), Edmonton, etc.

Not much of a market and Caron might not be an improvment on what they have. Noronen/Biron could be an improvment and a long term solution.

Pittsburgh needs Fleury to suceed this season. If Fleury was in net, Pitts would have won against Boston. He gave us a chance against Buffalo.

I say send Caron to the farm, play Fleury till Thibault gets back then go with the hot hand. By January, Fleury will be the undisputed #1 goalie with Thibault to guide him through the mental aspect.

I would send Caron down. If he gets claimed, big deal. He is #3 here. No question.

Caron will not be the starter with us. We all know that. We have all pegged him as the #3. The question is Fleury and how to develop him.

Take your chances with Caron on waivers.

Chiodo and Sabourin are just as good IMO.

Exactly. No worries, Caron would clear waivers no problem.

Consider the fact that Ron Hainsey cleared waivers earlier this year.

Would you trade Caron for Hainsey?

You really think Caron won't clear waivers?

Also, I know it's very short into the season, but he has outplayed Tbo so far. It's too early to cut bait with him yet.

Besides, even if Fleury backed-up Caron, he'd still play more than 20 games and earn $3million.

If Armstrong, Surovy, and Ouellet cleared, Caron will sure as hell clear too.

With atlanta's goalie issues with all of them being hurt, how about trying to work a trade with caron to atlanta for some help either on Offense or Defense? Mabye even package another one of players along with him. This then would mean we would have to keep Fleury around and give him a chance to prove himself to everyone in the league but more importantly to the team to realize he should be our starter.

We may need to keep Caron around more as insurance for Thibault than for Fleury when all is said and done.

That said, I don't think there is much fear of losing Caron to waivers. And a trade would have to entice the other team with another good player, prospect or pick. Otherwise, why would they want Sebastien Caron???

No offense to the Caron family.

I don't think Caron would clear waivers.

When TBo is healthy, send Fleury back down to get the large number of starts he needs. We can always recall him again later when injuries occur.
