As we all know by know, Dan Ellis declined the contract offer that the Hurricanes gave him and for the first time, JR spoke on the goaltending situation saying the following to Chip Alexander (Hurricanes beat writer)...

 

He (Rutherford) said there likely would be no trade for a goalie, noting the Canes "probably" would go with Justin Peters as Cam Ward's backup next season.

 

Carolina+Hurricanes+v+New+York+Islanders

 I wish we could go after Bryzgalov but that poo wont happen.  Think of the crazy Tripp Tracey interviews we could have.

Bryzgalov would be nice, but I'm a huge fan of Ellis' especially after all that he has gone through to get back to the NHL.

 

I personally think a combination of Ward/Ellis would be a pretty good tandem. 

 

Ellis seems to be a better overall player than Peters, and it's not that I don't like Peters; but I think he is more of an AHL starter than an NHL backup.

 

Ellis also played some really good hockey when his primary role was backup net-minder.

According to Pierre LeBrun we offered Ellis a contract but he informed us that he is headed to the free agent market.

 

I'm not sure how reliable this info is as LeBrun is the only person reporting this.

Ohhh lord please sign someone else.  Back up goalies aren't that expensive and Peters blows chunks.

Peters showed flahes this year, after being thrown to the wolves.  He could turn into something.

 

Ellis is at his peak now, which is just OK.  He's not someone worth getting into a bidding war over.

 

I'd rather see if Peters can be a star, than go with a mid tier back up who has no further upside.  We can get someone of Ellis' level if Peters ends up busting.

I didn't think he would be back with how little Carolina could offer him with the team being cap strapped with other needs.

Yeah, I don't see him coming back.

We're still screwed no matter who the backup is because the FO is in love with a mediocre starter.
