    Why would you be looking for an excuse to put your goalie of the future in the AHL?

    Because he'll get more games in net in Iowa vs what he will see as the backup in the NHL.

    Why would you play an entire season with a tandem of Dubnyk and Stalock?

    Why would you wait 3 months to put Fiala on the ice in 3v3 OT?

    And to be fair, nothing has actually happened yet, either way, regarding the 2020-21 season.

    That was probably a big reason why Boudreaux was fired. I doubt Guerin agreed with that. And, you’re right; Lahkonen could technically play in the NHL this year, I just don’t see how given our roster unless the AHL leads to an expanded roster

    At a certain point, being a NHL backup makes more sense than continuing to play in the 3rd best league in the world.

    Guerin decided that this was going to be "an evaluation season" and then decided not to evaluate his 23 year old potential goaltender of the future? That's about as dumb as it gets.

    Except Guerin did evalaute him and it seems he doesn’t think he’s an NHL goaltender.

    I would be a little too, but I don't actually think it reflects much about Kahkonen.

    Signing Talbot because Kahkonen only has 5 NHL games of experience, doesn't say much about anybody's thought about his NHL future.

    Talbot has nothing to do with it. If you thought Lahkonen was the goalie of the future you wouldn’t start him in th AHL when he has nothing left to prove there. They haven’t done that yet but that’s what Lahk’s new contract makes it seem like.

    Or it's just flexibility, built on leverage, that nobody here should be complaining about.

    It can be flexibility but you don’t start the goalie of the future as the 3Goalie in that situation. At least I wouldn’t, but again, what do I know?
