    Default Richard Bachman

    I have him in the league in my sig and I keep wondering if he's worth holding on to. I don't care about the fact that he's in the minors for now, even with Nilstrop there, but does anybody think he'll ever be a #1? There's a few decent guys on the WW and if Bachman doesn't have a legit chance of being a #1 then I'd rather take a chance on someone else. What do you guys say?

    I have never seen a future #1 goalie in Bachman. Never been overly impressed of him. I said in the summer than Nihlstorp will be tough competition for him and look what happened.

    Bachman will at best be a backup goalie in NHL IMO.

    How is this up comming season shaping up for Bachman? Is he the true back up or is he still battling with Nilstorp? Anyway he gets traded to a team with more starts avaialable?

    Unless Nistorp got traded to Edmonton without anyone knowing it, I'd say no.

    He actually signed as a FA with the Edmonton Oilers last week. He will battle with Jason Labarbera for the backup position in Edmonton but knowing the contracts signed, Bachman will more then likely start the season in the AHL and be an injury call up.

    thanks. i missed the edmonton signing. I guess he is looking like a number 2 back up goalie for a while now. I have to release him in my league, i was hoping for a more promising future sooner rather than later
