We have good backup goalies at the ready, that's for sure. But our starting goalie situation seems a little tough right now:
Niemi hasn't practiced since before having that minor procedure while the team has been practicing without him for the past couple weeks.
Nitty is out for 3 months after having hip surgery (I'd say he's either gonna be traded but that's not likely considering his injury history, or more likely he'll walk as an FA next summer.
It's been a while since Greiss has played here in SJ; he's not completely worthy of the starting job.
Sateri and Sexsmith don't seem to be ready for a full time position on the roster yet.
Heemskerk and Anderson are at least a couple years away from even getting their first call-up.
And of course, Stalock won't be even practicing again until past the season's halfway point (February). If only he hadn't been reassigned so soon after his debut, he would probably be on the ice right now. I hope he recovers quickly and that his injury won't impede him from getting his A-game back, because like most of us if not all, I consider him to be the future of San Jose's home-grown goaltending.
Anyone else have concerns?
