Now that The Kings have released Dan Cloutier (thank GOD). The Kings have limited the goalie problems to just a few. This preseason Labarbra has not proven yet to be a #1. Aubin is a clear backup. Bernier has proven that he is good. The only problem is his age.
As I see it. Labarbra will be used in a trade with a Kings prospect to get Gerber from Ottawa. I know the Kings won't give up too much and Labarbra will be a great backup for Emery. If that happens Im in the wrong business. Aubin could back up Gerber and the Kings could get through the season with a somewhat solid #1 netminder.
Also what could happen is the Kings could keep Bernier as the #1(Tough call for a 19 yr old) and trade Labarbra for another forward. He has played great this preseason.
Labarbra is a solid goaltender....He might just be the Kings #1 this year. The goals he has given up this preseason are not soft goals.
Let me Know what you all are thinking....
