DO NOT WANT!!!!!!

Considering that Emery and Turco are the only other options left, I would have to say "do want"...

But since a picture is worth a thousand words...

Covert Ops has its perks. You travel, make your own hours, and expense most of your meals.
The downside? Lots of people want you dead...

Like Holland said, Conklin is a "good fit".

Eh I personally would take Emery over both of them.

A goalie with a history of having a bad attitude, coming off a surgery so severe that he was nominated for the Masterton for returning to play afterward.

No thanks.

I don't know I think his time in Russia did him well.

Bad quality, but still an incredible save. I was at this game and still can't believe Peca didn't score, great save by Conks.

So glad it's not Turco.



I understand the "shine" that Emery has... Honestly, I kinda hoped for him, but I understand we're talking about Emery vs. a proven backup. A guy that's helped tend goal for several Finals Teams vs. a guy who had good time in Russia taking on his trainer/coach because he tried to put a cap on his head "rehabbing" his career.

Sorry, I like Emery... and maybe it was a good fit, but I'll go with the known commodity.

To the naysayers.... it was the fu<<ing Blues. THE BLUES. What did you think would happen to his numbers?

Imma let you finish, and your cap numbers are all good and all that, but imma let Kenny figure it out. Kenny's cap numbers were the best cap numbers this year.

im all about it, 750k for the year is a great deal. he was good in detroit i became a big fan when he was behind ozzie. if he plays 20-30 games in net i think he can handle that load well enough to get maybe 60% of them in the win column.

So glad it's not Turco.


Inside the Detroit Red Wings offices:

Holland: Okay, now that Ozzie's retired, we need to the address the backup 'tender slot. Whose available?

Some Guy: Conklin's out there. Ray Emery. And....well...giggle...Turco.

Everyone laughs for twenty minutes straight.

Holland: That was genius. Bonus for you this year. Now, lets take anyone off the list that's only won in our building once in like a billion years.
