    he definately is ready for the jump i am saying keep elliot as a backup i dont think he has much more he is going to learn down in bingo he needs to play in the big leagues and he may have a high pulled ratio right now but he is a rookie goalie he is expected to play like one and he deserves the chance to be inthe big leagues and putting him down in the ahl may not give him the confidence he needs to continue down his great career.

    He has still performed wayy better than Shneider, POgge etc who are supposed to be the future of their franchises. Id rather have a slow but sure progression than a hot and cold (inconsistant) guy all season. That slow but sure progression is a backup role in a full season schedule IMO, not going back in the AHL after playing more than 15 games in the NHL.

    So do you see a 1/1a rotation of Leclaire-Elliott for next year?

    If so, how do you handle the Auld situation (i.e. trade)? And when? And what in your opinion is his market value?

    I see a pretty hot and stable tandem between Leclaire and Elliott next year. Auld's contract is very well priced and Murray should have no problem trading him. It could be a good play for Murray to try and use him to get another pick or move higher up than 9th. Murray is a pretty sly negotiator so I can see him working something out that makes us happy. :D:

    OK, but to who? There are a lot of backups out there for a million or less.
