Leclaire, finally, is re-signed.

Tuesday, July 18, 2006

Pascal Leclaire re-signs for a two-year deal. Terms undisclosed

Not like this wasn't going to happen. I'm a little surprised it took this long, though ... I wonder just how much cash MacLean doled out for him. Either way, a two-year deal seems just right when you consider how long or how short of a deal he may've been looking for. Since this will be his first year as the undisputed starter (hopefully), it makes sense to sign him to something that doesn't keep him here forever in the event that he bombs (which I really hope doesn't happen, of course).

Now we can go back to playing with our crystal balls and taking guesses at which goalie will be the backup and which will be the reserve backup. My guess? Conklin will actually start as the backup while Norenna gets plenty of playing time down at Syracuse, and if he shows he can translate his good Swedish League play to quality play in the AHL, they'll call him up and send ol' Conks down to the Crunch. While that might sound a little loopy, Norenna doesn't sound like a guy who'd prefer sitting on his hands if he can be down with the Crunch getting in play time, even if it is in the minors. Conklin, meanwhile, will probably take just about anything after last season, backup or otherwise.
