35 save shutout for Rittich. I didn't watch the game yet but if it's anything like the games where I have seen him, he's simply too good for the AHL.

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?

It's probably not out of the realm of possibility that the Flames re-sign Johnson and then let Gillies and Rittich battle it out for the back-up job.

Johnson now 0.922 - 13th in league amongst goalies with 10 or more games played.
Rittich now 0.936 - 3rd in AHL amongst goalies with 10 or more games played.

We have our tandem for next year!

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?

Yeah, I'd be okay with Johnson as our #1, and Rittich as his backup. Gillies was better before he got his hip fixed. Tree may have his eye on another #1 though.

Rasmus has been quietly having an excellent season, with 31gp 2g 16a +18. Can anyone comment on how he's looked, the role he's been playing and if fitness is still a concern?

I'm not sure that's true.

His competition has been a lot harder since the hip surgery and he had a year off.

He is winning games and has a shutout this season. He's a rookie still - I don't think he's regressing.

Guy missed basically an entire year. Hopefully he improves a bit in the 2nd half but a step back isn't a giant surprise the first year after a major injury.

AHL transactions says the Heat have signed Keith Aulie to a contract. He was previously on a tryout with the heat.

^ 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

Heat are up 2-0 on SD. Goals by Jankowski from Morrison and Mangiapane and Klimchuk from Bailey

Kisker reports an interesting stat, that since Kylington left for the WJC on Dec 26 Stockton's PP has gone cold going 3 for 20.
