Not really that bad of a place to be a backup and hang out.  Even if you make it too the minors not a bad gig.

I am back in AZ now and love the place, good for him, and their AHL team the Roadrunners are just down the Highway in Tucson.

Me too and AZ generally protects their goalies better than most.

And would he have to clear waivers to be sent down to the AHL? My understanding is yes.

Yes to waivers, I meant on the chance he poops the bed again and actually clears.

I think the Leafs will still try to grab him for the Marlies

So do I, I think that's AZ's backup plan so they don't have $800K in the minors.

Doesn't this further reinforce the notion that the chances of Sparks having cleared were close to nil?
It's not denial...I'm just very selective about the reality I accept.

I don't recall anyone who thought he'd clear. Really a no brainer for the Leafs.

McElhinney #1 in Carolina, under 2 goals against in his last 5 starts. Darling waived.
