Chris Holt

With Henny being firmly fixed as the idol at MSG, Montoya so highly touted and LaFleur also a high draft pick...what does the future hold for Chris Holt?

Has he been forgotten about? Has he maxed his potential and has that finnish prospect at Hartford even blocked his chances in the AHL??

Lots of questions, can anyone answer?

I'm not so sure how high his potential really was. He will most likely be in Charlotte.

In a trade, could he fetch much? a couple of seasons ago he got to back up (very briefly) in NY so i thought he was highly thought of, but was that merely a case of lack of numbers??

Worst case scenario - I suppose every club need some depth in the minors

I don't that he has any trade value. He's an average player the kind that pretty much every team has his in their system. Plus, goalies don't have much trade value.

I dont think he as any future in the NHL

I think leaving college early was a huge mistake for him

I thought he was pegged as pretty much a career minor leaguer.

Be a good idea to trade for another goalie prospect, or someone to just stay in the AHL. Maybe Sean Burke?
Valli will start at Hartford, and Holt at Charolette. Lafleur, Im not sure.

Lafluer will be back in the Q, he'll be there for at least two more years

Right now, its Lundqvist and Valliquette on the big squad

Montoya and Wiikman on Hartford

And Holt on Charlette

I guess Hartford will probably just sign someone else and stick him in Charlette

Depending on how Wiikman works out, Holt is either stuck in the ECHL or playing backup in the AHL. I can't imagine him as more than a career AHLer, though I'm sure at some point with some organization he'll get an emergency start or so. I don't think there's any real NHL potential there, and certainly no trade value. Goalies of his skill level are a dime a dozen.

Don't think Fort Holt was ever more than a career AHL man and that on a good day. If the stars align, he may get an NHL start, but in whose lifetime.

I hope it would be in his lifetime!

The Fort is the kind of player who, on his very best day, could probably play a game in the NHL. I doubt he's good enough over an entire season to even really hold down an AHL starting job. As I recall, very little was expected of him in the first place, though. He doesn't project as an NHL'er, but really hasn't done that badly.

Perhaps he has a future in broadcasting?

Most likely, the ECHL.

Holt might be able to be a backup in the distant future. He is still relatively young and I don't think he has totally tapped into his potential but obviously he will never be the type to push for a starting job.

At last year's training camp I spoke to Chris at length about broadcasting and he is very serious about doing that, after his playing days are done. As goalies generally take a lot longer to develop than players at any other position, it is hard to know at this point where Holt will top out. However, I believe that he may still become an AHL regular netminder. We should know much more by the end of this season.
