The controversy surrounding who will be the teams concrete backup this season is back. Niklas Backstrom had surgery this off-season, and has looked good in the preseason, despite the controversy surrounding his career here in Minnnesota.

Darcy Kuemper has looked “shakey”, giving fans another headache, regarding the goaltending situation this year. Although we are very lucky to have Devan Dubnyk as the starting goaltender here in Minnesota, the back up situation may be a cause for concern if neither Backstrom or Kuemper can develop any consistency this season.
