    Is this the goalie who didn't speak any English and had to wear Fleury's pads for the half a game or so that he played in? (The computer I'm on won't let me open the link to see.)

    I don't know how he makes it behind Curry and Thiessen. Unless there is another trade in Shero's back pocket.

    Yes. He looked pretty solid in that game too. I'm biased though, I like Russian goalies for some reason

    I don't particularly care much for Curry. I don't see his skillset as a goalie as anything that's overly impressive. His lateral movement isn't as quick as you'd like neither are his reflexes... I mean that guy has "average at best" written all over him. His save percentage last eyar was pretty horrific at .867He'll be 27 this February. time to bring in youngsters. That's why Pechurski was drafted and Thiessen was brought in as a UD.

    I'm excited to see Pechurski get a chance in WBS. Kid is only 20 years old and he handled emergency spot duty with the Pens fine last year so if an injury happens to MAF or what not, I'm fine.

    Thought about the trade thing right after I clicked off...

    The rumors have been swirling about a trade with the Pens to get a winger, free up some log jammed space on the bottom lines ... Could see a prospect or goalie who is old for the minors like Curry get included

    Curry tho Christ. Maybe he is better than think he is but from what we have seen from him with the big club, he doesn't look like an NHL prospect at all. If there is anyway to move him, they should do it IMO.

    i hope hes not considered a prospect at 26-27. I'm not even sure if he's considered a realistic backup option for the Pens in the near future bot with BJ's extension

    Any reason why? I know his save percentage was laughable for a starter but not sure if it were anything else. His GAA suggest he wasn't facing many shots

    I thought he looked pretty good to for being so, out of place, for lack of a better phrase. I just wanted to make sure I was thinking of the same guy that the thread was talking about =]
