Like the signing.

Best goaltending tandem we have ever had? (Slightly depressing thought, although at the same time think what the rest of the team can do now net is sorted at least for this year)

Sportsnet has had Mathieu Garon as having signed with LA for 20 minutes now.

Uh no.

Decent signing for a backup.

Ok maybe a slight exaggeration

But still not by much, apart from the cup winning Khabibulin Grahame combo I cant think of a better tandem.

I mean certainly post lockout this is the best goaltending we have had heading into the season.

Roloson is already the 10th winningest goalie in lightning regular season history! 2nd if we are talking playoffs!

It's still wrong. Sportsnet needs to get INTENSE!

Great signing, he played well for Columbus when Mason was struggling.

Tampa fans should be thrilled. Oilers fan here. Watched Garon closely when he was here as i am a goalie coach. this guy could be one of the best goalies in the league on a team like TB. He is unbeatable on the ice and many have said he has the fastest feet in the NHL. The strongest part about his game is also his weakest, he plays so strong down low in his crease. But he forms a habit of not stepping out of the blue paint. He IS also the best shootout goalie in the league. ANOTHER great signing from Stevey Y.
i wonder if he had any talks with kevin lowe, especially since he traded for ROLI. Best of year to the bolts(my second favorite team.)

P.S. trade us Stamkos for RNH?

Apologies if it was already posted elsewhere, I looked but didn't see it. Here's Garon's new Lightning mask:

Coming up on two months after the fact. They just don't care.

70% also think it was a good signing.
