Sens Add One More Playoff Victory To Goalie Ranks


With the signing of Alex Auld to be the "backup" to Martin Gerber, the Senators now have a total of 2 playoff victories spread between their goalies.

That's 2.

Deux en francais.

Dos for those of you who hablo Espanol.

With 4 playoff games in his career, Auld makes Gerber look like a grizzled playoff veteran with his 12 games (one victory).

Regardless, this is a solid signing by Bryan Murray but it does nothing to address the need for a true number one goalie. With Chicago signing Cristobal Huet, does that open the door for a Nikolai Khabibulin sighting in Ottawa?

Well, I'm not Eklund so I won't pursue that false path but here's a prediction:

Auld supplants Gerber as the number one goalie by January.

100 bucks says that Auld plays more than 35 games this season. Gerber is useless.

Yay, another goalie potential controversy. I can't wait!
