Personally I think Hedberg covered Turco's slumps quite nicely last season. However, I think it's about time we brought up one of our goalie prospects; let's see how many games Smith plays this season. I'll say 15.
Lucky the Hurricanes didn't feel that way about Cam Ward or Ottawa about Ray Emery. Backups have been known to save the day in the new NHL.
It's not like the teams spent any money or time thinking about their backup goalies. Sure, they stepped up great, but it's not like they were important parts of the team before they started in the playoffs.
