Question, what is Quebec's goaltending situation for next season?? Will lacasse start or be backup?? Is the current starter back??
No, their current starter is gone. I don't know if they have any other goaltenders in the pipeline, or if Lacasse will get the starter job. If they traded for him, I guess that's because they see a need and think he can be the answer.
Oh my god, I'm happy for him! I remember that Roy was very interessed in him on his LHJMQ draft year, but he was chosen before he could draft him.
He was dreaming to play for the Remparts and for Roy, and now he gets a chance. Playing in a good team will sure help him a lot. The last time he had a good team behind him, he had two lost in the season (unfortunately, it was in the very last game of the season in the last tournament)
But it was something like 5 years ago, so it's not the same thing. I hope he will have a last year in LHJMQ before entering ECHL or AHL, cause he'll proves he's a better goaler than a lot of person think.
That's good and bad news.
Drummundville will be one of the best, if not the best team next season. They have a no1 goaltender but you always learn more on a winning team..
Not if you ride the pine most of the season, guys his age need to play consistently to develop properly. If he has to be a backup somewhere, I'd much rather see him sitting on the bench in the pros than doing it in Juniors; at least there he'd learn some of what the life of a pro is like.
