eddie lack


Recommended Posts

I would keep him and bring in a competent goalie who can split games. He's clearly not ready for a big workload, so find him a mentor who can handle 35-40 games and let's see what happens.

Agree with everything but the notion of bringing in a mentor...that's the role that Rollie the Goalie Coach plays. IMO, Eddie is a lot closer to being in a leadership/core role than being in a role where he is being groomed (other than the technical stuff that Rollie is there for).

I'd like to see the Canucks bring in a guy like James Reimer to share the net for the next couple of seasons. Reimer, because he's young, has been through the Toronto pressure cooker, been in a starting role, have played in some big games, big and athletic, could probably benefit from having someone like Rollie coach him, and seems to be a guy who Eddie can mesh with.

I don't know enough about Markstrom (and I'm probably tainted by Tortorella's opinion of him - "he's just not ready"), but I'd rather see a Lack-Reimer combo than a Lack-Markstrom combo.

Benning said he is open to getting an upgrade in net what does that mean for eddie does he get traded does he backup or does he start he is a great guy and is an up lift to the team.

It means that he's willing to sign or trade for a more experienced goalie if the price is right!

I have no idea who the 2 who voted no were, but I cannot fathom why. He would have to be part of some great trade.

there were originally 2 different poll questions, posing the exact same question with opposite wording. i answered no to both.
