Maybe Holmgren could send Boucher to Adirondack to be a player-coach.

Bobrovski is now

9-2-1 | 2.09 GAA | .931 Sv%

He's sixth in the league in Sv%
7th in GAA
And second in the league in Wins

Seriously, If Holmgren really does, The mob may be comparable to when he traded Gagne for a pile of dog crap.

The only real option I see would be to waive Boucher, and more than likely he would pass through. Which sucks because I love boosh.

This would be akin to sending Giroux down at this point.

Waive Leighton when he comes back and send him to the Phantoms. Maybe next time he won't conceal an injury before signing a contract.

Well now, that's impossible seeing how Leighton has more shutouts than Bob.

Lavi has already made this decision for Holmgren by riding Bobo the past few weeks.

What should happen:

Leighton will get a conditioning stint in the AHL and IF he plays half decently will get called up and be Bob's backup. Boosh will stay on the team until it is found out whether Leighton can be a decent backup or not, at which point Homer and Lavi will decide whether to waive Boosh or Leighton.

This period (which should last no more than a month) of decision will give Bob a nice break as Leighton and Boosh 'battle' for the backup spot. In a 4 game week I would assume Bob gets 2, Leighton gets 1 and Boosh gets 1, for example. Then Bob can take the reigns fully back at the start of '11.

I don't know about all this. I think Leighton will get the conditioning stint like you said, but once he shows he is 100%, I think he gets the call up and Boosh gets sent down. At that point I think it will be a 1a 1b situation until one of the two starts to drop the ball. My guess is that it will be riding the hot hand type of situation unless one of Bob or Leighton really plays poorly for an extended period of time, at which point the other will get the nod as the starter.

Normally I would agree with you, but Lavi rode Cam Ward all the way to the Stanley Cup in his rookie year, he has a track record of disregarding past performances and going with a hot hand.

Just look at now, did anyone think Bob would start 8 straight games? (and go 7-0-1 in them, I might add)

I'm not sure what Lavi riding Ward has to do with anything. It's not as if Martin Gerber had a stellar regular season or a track record of being a playoff sensation. Wouldn't a more comparable situation be what happened last year with Leighton and Emery? Once Emery was healthy he started the next 7 games even though Leighton 4-1 in his last 5 starts.

However, my concern is that unlike Leighton and Boucher who had played 40+ games in their careers at some level, Bobrovsky has not. I only hope that come March and beyond that the rigors of an NHL regular season (not to mention the playoffs) don't take its toll on him.

That is an interesting point with Emery and Leighton; however, the difference in talent is immensely apparent between Leighton and Bob. Also, isn't Leighton pretty comparable to Gerber in alot of respects?

I am not too concerned with Bob breaking down, either, to be honest, with a work ethic like he has.

I won't argue with you about the talent level because that is clear. But, in the end, I wouldn't be surprised if Lavi gives Leighton the opportunity to play in a stretch of games. After that stretch, let the competition begin and whoever is winning games gets to play.

Yes, Bobrovsky has a great work ethic, but he's going to go from playing 30-35 games to potentially 50-60. That's a lot to ask for a rookie goalie. Using your Cam Ward analogy, he only played in 28 regular season games and look how good he was in the playoffs. Mind you, I don't want Bobvosky to only play 28 games, but I also don't want him playing 60 either.

I would think if you have a goalie on a hot winning streak, you don't make ANY changes until he loses 2 in a row.

That isn't what Lavi did last year. As soon as Leighton lost 1 game, Emery took the reigns (until he got hurt).

He is making my fantasy hockey team look pretty good right now. Bobrovsky is showing some super ability, I will be interested to see how he is after game 25 considering he has only played in 35 games in a season previously.

Emery has a lot more talent that Leighton does. I don't blame him.

I'm also not sure Leighton has enough talent to get through this injury. if it hampers him in the slightest way, he's done.

I think everyone's making a bigger issue of the amount of games Bobrovsky has played than what it really needs to be. If you look at Jonathan Quick, he played two years at UMass-Amhearst and he played in a total of 54 games. When he went pro in 2007-2008, he played in 60 games that year. So, it's not as if it can't be done. If Bobrovsky appears in 45 to 50 games this year during the season and then is the starter come playoff time, that's perfect.

I think we've officially witnessed the end of goalies playing in 60+ games a year now and that you only want your starter to play 50-55 games a year in order to be fresh come playoff time.

I still think Bobrovsky is going to need a break at some point. I was pretty shockedhe played in every game in that 6 game in 10 night, and 3 games in 4 nights stretch last week. I know Lavi is riding the hot goalie, but at some point I would think he needs a break.

He'll get a break soon enough. I think he's playing as much as he is because the coaching staff has zero confidence in Boucher getting the job done. People can build up Boucher all they want, but fact is, the team in front of him plays well enough to win and he'll give games away.
