Beyond a great game for the kid last night, Isles brass seem to love what this kid brings...now Athur Staple, the team's beat writer, is suggesting Halak may never play another game for the isles, and they will roll with Berube and Greiss next season...Kings fans, is this kid really as good as he looks?

Speculated by @stapenewsday on twitter...

Cites cost, injuries, work habits...

I know Berube was beauty in the AHL for Manchester, but want to know what Kings fans think of the kid...

Would Berube have been the no 2 if not for the Enroth signing? Begs the question- why did they sign Enroth?

Not the best choice- I would have gone with Sorokin

Don't know who Sorokin is. Only googled your ahl team and who is their most used young goalie.

For real. A high 2nd is way too much to give up for a glass goalie.

Berube is very average at best. Was just average at the AHL level. Sure he won the Calder Cup behind a strong Manchester squad, but posted a sub .900 save percentage in the process. He was a middling .913 goalie in the American League for most of his career. He has played strong for NYI it seems so far, but I don't think he'll last as an NHL goalie. Goalies can be very variable over short stretchs so I don't much into his limited stats this year.

He was the Kings 4th goalie this year in training camp. Unfortunately both #3 (Patrik Bartosak) and #4 (Berube) are no longer in Kings plans.

Was gonna say the same thing. The thread title was somewhat misleading...Greiss could take Halak's job next yr and Berube would be Greiss' backup in that case. Either way, I doubt that happens.

That's how it will go I'm sure.

This is a bit premature. If anything it would be Greiss.
