Condon played great. What a game. Losing Methot really stinks assuming he's not around at the start of the playoffs.
Honestly, a case could be made to re-sign Condon and protect him over Anderson. Have to think longevity here. I'd hate to lose Condon for nothing (UFA to Vegas or expansion draft), and have Andy retire in two years. Thoughts?
Yeah, I don't see that ever happening. I don't see Condon as a starter. To me he's a good back-up thats having a great year behind a team that's playing a good defensive game.
Im not sure that translates every year. There's too many things about his game watching him that I feel could turn against us. I'd like to resign him but if he wants to bolt for another opportunity let him do so.
Imagine we had ditched Anderson and gone with Hammond as our #1 as Ev suggested? Yikes. Similar scenario here, although at least we can all agree we'd like Condon back as the backup.
He was also really solid in Montreal last year until the team collapsed around him. Even now, if Price isn't on his A-game the Habs lose. They're not a good team. They grossly overused him. This is back-to-back years of Condon being good, and he's shown that he can come off the bench and perform. I really don't think Vegas would pick up Anderson given his age and the number of good goalies that will be available to them via expansion draft and/or UFA pool.
