what a joke, from now till christmas the schedule is crazy.
Now to after the game against the pens on Dec 23rd
-15 games total
-9 road, 6 home
-3 back to back sets
-a western swing with 4 games in 6 days
-5 games against division rivals
-7 games against teams with records equal or better than the SENS (NJ x 2, CBJ, SJ, LA, BUF, PIT)
Why would we trade for a goalie? It's only a month, and we don't exactly have a ton of cap room. Are we going to sign some guy just to waive him a month later?
Isn't Carolina doing this when they signed Manny Legace after Cam Ward got injured.. I could be wrong.. cause we obviously don't know what they are gonna do with him after Ward is back.. but they already had a SOMEWHAT decent back-up with Leighton/Peters duo.. but went out and got Legace
the schedule over that time is brutal, except for a couple of games, it's going to be tough.
Great timing. Like others have said, bad luck or no luck, Leclaire's got it all.
I think Elliot is cabable of getting us through this stretch, but as long as he doesn't get overwhelmed with the task at hand, and just gets the mindset of "ya gotta do what ya gotta do" and does it like he can.
