    Default Which backup is most likely to take over starter job?

    Other than Fasth, who is arguably now at least the 1b goalie in Anaheim (some may argue he's already the starter, although to me it's still a little too early to conclude this), which current backup is most likely to take over the starter job this year? Let's also exclude already 1a/1b tandems like Holtby and Neuvirth from the discussion.

    I'll start with one guess: Markstrom. Theodore is struggling and Markstrom has impressive numbers in the AHL. It's only a matter of time before this happens. Is the time now? (admittedly, Markstrom is not strictly a backup since he was just called up but hey, he's worth mentioning)

    Who else?

    I can't promise I'll try but I'll try to try.

    With the Panthers, I'd say Clemmenson has a better chance at that roll bc of past performances..if he still has it in him.

    With the season being so short teams should be riding the hot goalie. I could see Pittsburgh keeping Vokoun in if Fleury were to get lit up, especially since Vokouns had 5 games played already.
    10 team - Keep 4 - H2H Scoring:
    C(3)LW(2)RW(2)D(4)

    I'd say Flower would have to absolutely sh*t the bed for quite a stretch for that to happen.

    EDIT: Oh yeah, and Vokoun would have to absolutely stand on his head in the meantime.

    Luongo is elite, but Schneider is getting there, and I can feasibly see Luongo's time threatened this whole season.

    Elliot will not replace Halak as #1 because Elliot is not at the same level, and has played exceptionally sucky this year.
