    What to do when you have too many goalies? One more.

    So now we have 6 goalies on contract when Neuvirth & Lyon come back. I don’t really get it.

    I think Neuvy is gone. Yes, i get they had an open roster spot, but given all the goalies they currently have under contract, you'd have to think that at least one of them is gone for good.

    Damnit! I like Pickard but I think this spells the end for Stolie.

    Maybe if we fuse them all together we get a super goalie?

    Did we get a special league dispensation to be allowed to play more than one goalie at the same time?

    Can we strip our goalies for parts and make a Frankenstein abomination to hold the net until Cart is ready? Is it illegal for someone with extra limbs to play in the NHL?

    EDIT: Chinatown and I are on the same page!

    I’m not shocked. Hextall took Pickard to the Worlds 2 years ago, so his eye has been on him and clearly there is an opportunity here.

    I don’t know if they put Stolarz on waivers or not but Neuvirth & Lyon should be starting the season on IR so you’d have to wait a while on them.

    I imagine Neuvirth yelling "And I'll form the head!", then trying to climb up the others and falling off due to a muscle tear.

    Makes sense.

    NHL - Elliott, Pickard
    AHL - Hart, Stolarz
    IR - Neuvirth, Lyon

    If Stolarz actually played hockey last year, i'm guessing they'd have went with him as backup and then picked up an AHL backup off the trash heap. They must not be comfortable with him as NHL backup since he missed so much time last season.

    I'd like to see them go with Stolarz to be honest. Let him finally prove himself or play himself off the roster.

    Pickard’s really not good so he’ll fit in well.

    Stolie could get hurt at anytime and Neurvy is finished. Hart and stloie need to be the goalie in the ahl and Pickard can hold his own but probably not here. Hopefully Elliot can stay healthy.

    Interesting to see how this shakes out. Maybe Neuvirth's injury is worse than first anticipated or maybe Hextall is ready to say enough with him. If the G situation improves, they can just put Pickard on waivers again. For those who have seen both play, is Pickard better than Lyon?
