Default So... who are our goalies next season?

We have an intermission to sit through, so... who should we target for #1? #2 will be an easier call, but we absolutely need a flat-out #1 next year.

I completely got behind Elliott in the last half of the season, but he's had a terrible last two games. In addition to that, the somewhat harsh reality is that a goalie making saves in the first month and a half of our season would have meant home ice against a weaker team in the first round, instead of this gong show.


Edit: Also, that may have been one of the worst run-on sentences I've ever written, and I don't even care enough to fix it. That's how pissed off I am right now.

Anyone at this point. Just holding out for one of our goaltending prospects to pan out to take the starting role.

I'm hoping Bishop is the starter.

Elliott would be fine if he didn't have so many gaping holes in his body. It's like he's been shot by an anti-tank calibre gun and the holes widen as the games become more important.

I bet they go after Ben Bishop now... hope they don't overpay.

It has been a long time since a goalie we drafted and developed became a #1 in the NHL. Mike Vernon may be the last one.

IMO they will trade for MAF in the offseason as the two remaining years on his deal are perfect as by then they will hopefully have Gillies ready by then to challenge for a starting job. I would only be okay with Bishop if he would accept a 3 year contract or less.

As long as it's not Elliott or Johnson next year, I'm pretty much fine with anyone. Target a guy like Grubauer or Pickard.

Humour me for a second... What if LA signs Bishop and puts Quick on the block?

This, don't want Bishop on a long contract.
