The hunt for a backup is on

10 Jun

Sutter (I don’t even care which one anymore) confirmed that $4M backup Vesa (Hey I can score too!) Toskala will not be returning. Yes Darryl, we assumed that.

So who do we look at know? Thoughts are that maybe Leland Irving may be ready to make the leap. But I doubt it, since I assume they are grooming him to be a starter. Matt Keetley is on option, but not as promising of one as David Shantz. Shantz carried the Heat of Abbotsford last year in the AHL, and is pretty likely to amount to an NHL backup. Why not now? The price is certainly right.
