How many games do you think Harding will play next year? I've recently started to follow Minnesota and I think they have a very bright future. I know Lemaire liked to juggle between Roloson and Fernandez the past few years, but how many games will Harding start now that Rolly is gone? How long do you think before he's their #1 goalie? Thanks!
Barring an injury to Fernandez, he'll play at least 10 and no more than 15 games. However, he'll face Rolston and Gaborik everyday in practice and learn alot riding the pine. He'll be pretty solid when he plays ... He's going to be playing against St. Louis, Columbus, Pittsburgh and etc. Occasionally on back-to-back nights when Lemaire thinks Fernandez needs a break. I project that Harding will have a winning record and a respectable GAA.
