What do they do with Rittich next season, do they re-sign him? They have to put Schneider somewhere and Parsons is eligible for the AHL as well if I'm not mistaken. Its too bad we dont have a legit starter on the flames or Rittich and Gillies could battle it out for the backup spot next year.
Edit: unless Johnson is our legit starter?

Is it ridiculous to consider Rittich for a spot start in Calgary? Elliott's stats for the year are awful and even looked shaky in his win streak. He is getting starts based solely on his reputation right now. Would it be crushing to start Rittich for a game instead of him?
^ Has Rittich really only played 12 games? Might be a little quick to pencil him into the Flames lineup next year.
This is an interesting point. With the new West coast division in the AHL, it might be harder to develop and/or guage goalie development due to the relaxed schedule, whereas NHL goalies are subjected to compressed starting stretches
