but Morris coming back is pretty big. The team will be deep and experienced enough, it will just be a matter of what it always is, a few people stepping up and pushing the team forward when it needs a push.
is not a high demand position these days, where there are fewer and fewer early round G picks. But this is important for next year.
wait another year.
the rule in the NHL is that a guy needs to be minimum early 20's anyway before he gets it - and a lot don't get it till 25 or so. The tough part is that he does need to see some rubber, so maybe a little more splittig with Cale is in order.
way when it comes to mental preparation, so this is just my off the cuff viewpoint about next year, but I'd like to see the goalies rotate time in net fairly equally.
We know what Morris brings. We suspect St. Cyr is also a high quality goalie, and I'd like to know that for sure because he is expected to shoulder the entire load -- or 90% o f it -- as a senior in 2020/21. I think by giving Morris 50-60% of the starts, he will certainly stay sharp, and I've noticed a handful of teams going the two goaltender route. And by giving St. Cyr a real workload, he will use that to his advantage the following season.
The expectation of course would be that once the post season rolls around, Morris is the man. And if for some reason one or the other just totally outshines his teammate, this can be re-imagined of course. But this way, we end up potentially with a true battle-tested goalie in St. Cyr for 2020-21.
in the professional leagues and even in the CHL more games are being played and it's throughout the week, so you can do this. Just playing 2, for the most part Fri and Sat, makes it much harder to do that kind of split and still give the lead guy enough rubber and time in net. It's not a position which benefits much from practice. I'd see maybe a 67-33 at best.
