What do you mean by that?
It means he's fine with Laurent Brossoit as our backup.  The two train together in the offseason.

Ahh got it, wasn't sure what he meant by the familiar part. Didn't know they trained together.

Good to know. Perhaps that's part of why he was signed.

While his career numbers thus far are not good, he's played on some pretty craptacular Oilers teams. His one good season also happened to be the year they made the playoffs. Although, he only played 8 games. His AHL numbers are decent enough.

I have no idea how the backup situation shakes out, but this is a good, low-risk signing for the Jets, IMO. Maybe Brossoit is ready to take that next step as a backup in the NHL.

Comrie (hasn't been signed yet) & Bros will certainly put together a meaningful battle in TC.
May be wrong ..... but neither can move between Moose & Jets without going to waiver wire this season.

Meanwhile Iles, with Greis & the Rangers who have Lundqvist ...... do not have anyone listed as a backup goaltender on Cap Friendly.
Soooooo a few teams are still deciding on their goaltenders ....... with the pickings slim on experience.

I've heard some speculation about bringing Mason back... he got paid for his contract and is a free agent.  I don't think he's getting $4mil anywhere, would be hella weird... possible, but I don't think its worth it...

Ideally this will be Comrie's last year in the A and I hope he explodes and can be our sure-fire #2 next year. But this year I don't think he's ready based on what I've seen.

That wouldn't necessarily be a bad idea for the right price. Maybe 1 year at $2-2.5M...?

Looks like five RFAs have filed for arbitration: Dano, Hellebuyck, Lowry, Tanev, Trouba.

I don't mind Brossoit getting a shot to be the regular backup. He's spent his entire career behind one of the leakiest defenses in the league, and the only year Edmonton was any good, Brossoit actually put up pretty good numbers. He's been good in the AHL, he was phenomenal in juniors, got good size and athleticism and a lot of times goalies take a while to develop. Brossoit is only 25, so he's still got room to develop.

Pretty much where I stand on Brossoit. Well said.

It's still a massive risk. The fact remains is Brossoit is an unknown.

Of course it is. But it's also a fact that's the case with most of what's currently available on the market.

That's why I suggested the strategy in post 12 of this thread.
