Nice! (I suppose this could go in the affilliates board, but this is a big award so I posted it here)

The cool thing about him is that he came through Wheeling as well.

Wendel Young baby! 87-88 winner...

If Caron isn't going to step up and be a solid #2 to stay behind MAF... maybe Dany boy can do it...

I still think we need a solid goaltender for Fleury to develop BEHIND, but that's just me.

Well... That was supposed to be Thibault, but that didn't quite work the way it was planned.

Yeah, all the great goalies developed behind someone, Dryden, Roy, essentially all of them.

Nothing like developing while sitting on a stool in the Igloo runway where you can't even see the other goal.

It doesn't mean he would only play 10 games a year. Splitting the ice time with a solid "on the way out" vet would take pressure off and put a solid mentor with no need for "gotta win a spot" mentality going on.

By the way... he Pens backup doesn't sit in the runway. Just a little fyi for ya...
