Anton Khudobin Needs To Start


Recommended Posts

So far Ward has only started 2 games after the break but at weird times. One the first game after the break and one after Anton only started 2 games after Ward's first.

Yea, right now it looks like they are splitting. Hopefully it changes back over to Ak getting 90% start type of stretch

Well I mean they're gonna showcase Ward if they're trying to trade him.  He's just making himself look bad.

We should've traded him 2 seasons ago when he still had value.

Well he was coming off a season when he played 74 games and still had his best year ever.  Also a season when we just barely missed playoffs.  Also a season when Ward broke down at the end because 74 games is too much for any goalie to play and PETE DAWG was pretty much an auto loss.  The thinking was a better back up would have gotten us in so they signed Brian Boucher lol

 

He should have been traded after the lockout year.  We were out of it by the deadline anyway.  Dobby could probably get more as a rental now.  fug, trade them both idc.  Suck for Ekblad.  Trade the Staals too.  Semin.  Ruutu.  Actually give Lindholm some meaningful time since you decided not to keep him in Europe for the year when he clearly wasn't ready.  Fire JR, Muller, Francis, Daniels, and all those other former players they gave fuging cushy jobs to.  Maybe we could use that money on some fuging scouts or something jesus christ.  Our European scout lives in Raleigh. Thats fuging stupid.

2011-2012 is when he played 68. Our last chance to trade him with some good compensation was last offseason after the lockout (2012-2013 season).

All three goalies are on the block, Ward still has tremendous value in a trade. It's just about finding a team willing/needing him for two seasons with it being a team that ward would agree to waive his Ntc for.

Wont be able to move either of them now.

 

ummm, why not?  The keys to Ward being traded has been reaching an extension with AK and Ward waiving his NTC. So I'm confused why they wont be able to move either of them? There's still quite a few Ward rumors circulating right now as well.

His play has been just south of dog poo.  He wont get an extension worth nearly as much as his current deal, so waiving the NTC wouldn't even be necessary.

 

Sure I'd love to see him go elsewhere, but do I think it's realistic?  No.

Yea, but the play in front of them has been south of dog poo as well.  They have to play lights out to give the team any semblance of a chance at winning.

Looks like Ward is now the starter again. I know he's played well the past couple games, one against the worst team in the NHL, but it's only a matter of time before he reverts to his old self. I've seen this story play out over and over. Way to support the goalie that should be your starter going forward after 1 bad game. How about looking at the entire season? Oh well, done with the Canes this season.
