Sparks was the teams best player last night.

Pitched a shutout recently too.

I don't care much for either goalie but Sparks' stats this season are considerably better than Bibeau's (albeit in less games). They were better last year too, but again in less games. With the goalie situation with the Leafs and Marlies now a lot clearer I'd like to see Sparks start to get a larger share of the starts for the Marlies in the 2nd half.

Stats wise: Sparks > Bibeau
Goalie form: Bibeau > Sparks

To me, they're both jockeying to be backups at best. Woll is the Dubas of the goalie corps.

Bibeau's micro adjustments are an interesting wrinkle, as much as you'd look at the two and peg Bibeau as the more technically sound, his constant micro skating adjustments seem to leave him facing shots without being "set" as much as he could be.

It's probably what really hamstrings him every time there is even a minor scramble in front of him.

That being said, the micro-adjustment habit is between the ears and can eventually be coached out.

Sparks seems to be more reactionary (a la Reimer).

Sparks I'd put closer to a Quick purely in terms of style, it's just balls out throw everything at it to make the save.

Hopefully one of them can figure it out this year.

Nice thing is we probably have two more years to see if one or both of them pan out
