    I'm a little embarrassed I voted for an AHLer (currently) to be our starter. But after last year, let's shake things up! Let's also let all the kids and only new guys run the PP, couldn't hurt.

    Johnson, but on the condition that he changes his number to 85, and refers to himself as OchoCinco

    Who it #1? Who it should be #1? Who it will be #1 at the end of the season? 3 different questions with potentially 3 different answers. What are you asking?

    I don’t think it’s a question as much as a way to voice his preference for Husso.

    Not gonna vote until the rest of the team can fix themselves. Just what we need to do, throw Husso into this hell hole and screw up his development.

    Hmm 2 of the 3 has actually played in an NHL regular season game. I’d go with one of those.

    It'll either be Jake or the fourth guy that Ranksu failed to make an option for. No way Jake is leaving unless he is shipped out for another starting goalie. Nice try, Ranksu.

    Well with no guidance given...

    Who is #1? Obviously Allen. The off-season moves, the interviews from Army and Yeo, everything points to giving Allen a legit chance. It will take a very poor performance over a lot of games to dislodge him now.

    Who should be #1? Still Jake. We should have made a move to give ourselves a better option but that time is past. Jake is the only one with the skills and experience to be a #1. Husso doesn't need the pressure at this point. Johnson doesn't have the skills.

    Who will it be? Husso eventually. Husso needs 40+ games in the AHL and 10 or so in the NHL for 50+ total this season. That will give him a starter's workload and NHL games. If he handles those, he can be lined up for next year as the 1a or 1b to Allen. If Jake struggles this year and Johnson is good, then give it to Johnson while still grooming Husso properly. But regardless of our NHL situation, I do not deviate much from that plan with Husso, unless Husso is just lights out in his 10 NHL games. I doubt we are winning a cup with a rookie Husso, so just call the season a loss if you can't snag a goalie in trade.

    You can vote when 10 games has gone or change your vote.

    Use your head.

    It's Allen's net this year. The Blues have said that multiple times. Like him or not he is the guy, with 3 years (counting this one) on his contract left the Blues have a plan in place for him and his successor.

    Now in a year or two down the road....

    I don’t want Husso to be the starter, that would mean the Rampage are stuck with either Jake/Binnington or Johnson/Binnington. Why would you wish that on the Rampage??? First year AHL affiliates, please don’t screw them over the first year, lol!! <sarc>
