As in 2011-12. Let's see what Carey does next season. If he is solid enough, Desjardins will be a good backup.
Based off what? I think we should wait and see how he does in his first NHL games before considering him a good backup. Personally I'd feel better about Desjardins as a backup if he played better in the playoffs, but he lost the job to Sanford as soon as Sanford came back from injury.
