    well Sigalet will be back in Providence next season, he looked pretty solid, like Raycroft pre 2005-2006 season however keep in mind Sigalet is already 25...and is stuck behind Toivonen in Boston.

    Best NHL potential out of all thoose goalies IMO is Shantz. He'll be in the AHL next year for sure... he's a big, quick, butterfly goalie. If he can eliminate the weak goals he lets in from time to time and get a little more consistent, he could be an NHL goalie. He's gonna get stiff competition from other Florida goaltending blue-chipper, Tyler Plante, however.

    Tyler Plante has the more potential of the two. Shantz may become an NHL backup, but i doubt that he will ever become a starter in the NHL. We need him to develop now, with the developments in the Luongo story.

    I think that LaCosta is slated to be the back-up tender for the CBJs AHL affiliate Syracuse Crunch. Thomas Popperle should be the starter.

    McElhinney's top potential is probably a decent NHL backup, he will be back in Omaha next year, and depending on what happens with Krahn and the backup job in Calgary he could end up starting, but will likey just split time with someone brought in.
