Stop, Harding Time!
Again, forgive me for the cheesey title to this post; for some reason I think each post needs a flashy title to it. Anyways, Josh Harding has won the battle (if there was one) for backing up Manny Fernandez. Lemaire has indicated so, and Harding played the entire game last night against the Blues. Expect Harding to start around 20 games this year, mainly in games that are needed to give Manny a rest. I've only seen Josh play in 3 games, all from late last season, but he appears to be a very technically-sound goaltender who wore old brown leg pads. Word has it he has scrapped those old pads (which he wore in homage to the great goaltenders of the past) for a set of newer, lighter ones.
