Holy Under The Radar, Batman!

Looks like a situation where a guy has paid his dues and is ready for a gig such as this. Let's hope that is the case.

Sorry I'm an idiot. Read the Player card on nhl.com and I saw 31 right above height and weight and thought it was age but after a closer inspection, 31 is his number

He signed a one-way deal. This is the backup goalie.

He's older because he played all 4 years of college but he's not that old Dekanich is a very good prospect, but he's just that, a prospect. I know that several teams were interested in him because of his potential even though he's unproven. He's been solid wherever he's played. He just hasn't had a chance to make the NHL yet.

And Hugg is right. Dekanich can't go to Springfield without clearing waivers and he probably wouldn't. This is a one-way deal. He's the backup unless something else happens.

I asked a Preds fan on Twitter about him and this is what he had to say

His 2.02 goals against average was third among AHL netminders and his .931 save percentage was the best in the league.

Well let's all hope that Ian Clark is half as good as we all want him to be.

Well, I guess we get a competition between a goalie who's been slowly developed and one who got rushed.

Not exactly what I hoped Howson would do, but Dekanich has done well in the AHL and now has his chance to show what he can do at the NHL level.

I like it. Intriguing dude. Sanford has NHL experience behind him, which hedges on the readiness issue.

More money to maybe spend elsewhere?

Dekanich is awesome.

My sole reservation is his lack of NHL experience - the one time he played last year it was in the middle of one of the lower points of the Preds' season - Lindback had given up 3 on 9 shots, and Rinne was injured, so he went in and the Preds still lost 6-1.

Still, the guy's been absolutely amazing in the AHL. .931 SV%. I'm pretty sure he's ready.

I would've preferred Theodore or Hedberg, but I will gleefully take Dex.

Thanks, Howson, for cleaning up MacLean's toxic waste. Welcome, Kekalainen; let's get good things built!

Listening to the Scott Howson press conference, and he said one of the reasons the CBJ let go Garon and signed Dekanich was because Garon caught left handed (same as Mason), and Dekanich catches right handed.

It will be interesting to see how the goaltending works out this season.

This would be hilarious if it weren't true...

Quickly looked through the thread. Outside of the deal being one way has there been any information on the other terms of the contract?

Actually, it's one of the biggest risks Howson took today. He even admitted it in his press conference.

More on the new net minders. Actually makes this sound pretty decent. Might work out.

Only for the one year, though, and we can find another backup if needed.
