Should bachman make the team?

Hey canucks fans, today i wanted to start another vancouver goaltending controversy. Willie Desjardins said that spots were to be battled for this pre-season and in my opinion bachman has outplayed miller. Shouldnt we give him a shot? Hes already been solid in the ahl and i think he deserves a shot over a veteran passed his prime. Plus markstrom is a number 1 goalie, and he proved it countless of times including his performance playing for sweden against russia. 

 

Miller would also be a better mentor to demko in the ahl than bachman.

Bachman is being kept for 1 reason..to be exposed in the coming expansion draft.

Demko has Rollie there, doesn't he?!!!  Bachman won't be mentoring as much as Rollie.  If you are not appreciating Miller, wouldn't you rather JB attempt to package a trade with him in order to land a solid forward?  I think JB has personally played the goalie situation fairly well.  Miller and Markstrom will share the load (equally or perhaps even more Markstrom in my opinion despite JB stating that Miller is the #1 to start the season).  This shores up the Canucks for 2016-7.  Demko gets quality ice time with the AHL and Rollie.  Bachman has shown that he's dependable to share the AHL load and come up to the NHL should JB want Demko to keep developing with Rollie.  The Canucks are rich in the goalie position as usual.

So bury Miller and his $6m contract in the minors?  Seems like a great idea, that free's up so much cap space too!!!  Wait, no, that's not how it works......Bachman has played some good hockey, but he isn't consistent enough to push either Markstrom or Miller out of their spots.

Despite your heresy, I shall not minus you.

 

Deplorable thinking.

I thought he hasn't played poorly.  Though your point isn't unreasonable at all, I wouldn't be surprised if JB finds a way to expose another goalie instead if possible.

To be exposed dont you have to have played some NHL games...which Bachman has.....Miller and Markstrom are safe.....so unless they pick up an experienced goalie sometime this season...it looks like Bachman to me..
