Cujo Decides Today

As reported, today Curtis Joseph will make his decision on what team he will join.  It appears that the San Jose Sharks have dropped out of the running, while the New York Rangers have replaced them as the second most likely team, behind the Calgary Flames.  It is believed the Toronto Maple Leafs still have an outside shot as well.  The Rangers need a mentor in a sense for Henrik Lundqvist as their backup is a journeyman netminder in Stephen Valiquette.  Calgary would be the logical sense for his family as it is a wonderful city, but can Curtis deal with Iron Mike Keenan for another season?

Cujo Coming to Calgary?!?!

There has been speculation that Curtis Joseph has narrowed down his short list to two teams, the Calgary Flames, and the San Jose Sharks.  Both of these options make sense as they have starting goalies who have the bulk of the load, and un-proven back ups who are not ready to play in the show yet.  Kipper has been overworked all year, which I believe is why he has not been in his previous Vezina winning form.  That being said, Keenan has traded Cujo and he is a hard coach to play for as a goaltender (King of the Yank).  As a Flames fan I would love to have him fill the void of noodles (who we should never have gotten rid of in the first place).  As bad as Jamie Mclennan was, he was a good influence in the dressing room and at practice for Kipper and I think Mr. Joseph could do the same.  Hopefully I can soon welcome Curtis to the true hockey city in Alberta. 😉
