oh that crafty Mario - Disco Dan might be on a short leash?
I would think Disco and Fleury are on a short leash in 2013-2014. They both have to be successful. Disco put a heavy emphasis that MAF is and will be the starting goaltender for the Pittsburgh Penguins in the fall. If Fleury fails to live up to performance standards and Bylsma keeps playing him, then I think it is a bad mark on him. I see Disco staying around for the entire 2013-2014 campaign. If the team falls short again, I predict he's gone.

My guess is Vokoun will be the backup entering camp next month. He will compete with the younger goalies. Can the younger guys overtake him on the depth chart? I'm not sure. But I just hope Vokoun has another great year as a backup. Remember Brent Johnson had a nice year then followed it up with a poor one. Hope Tomas does not follow that trend.
