Kaapo Kahkonen is making the Wild's playoff goaltending decision tougher

I thought Kahkonen looked great again today at the Wild's scrimmage.  I realize he played just two periods (and OT) total in the two scrimmages but he's looked as sharp as anyone.  I give my thoughts on what that could mean for the team heading into its play in series against Vancouver as well as how it could mean for the future of a certain veteran goalie.  Enjoy and discuss.

I am thinking , that Kahkonen would be the best choice as a starter goalie against Vancouver. He was great in both Wild's scrimmage games(did not allowed any goals in his net) and really merit be a starter goalie. Second choice is Stalock  after the first game if we loose.

Well, I'll tell you who it shouldn't be - Dubnyk...  His GAA (3.25) and Save% (.890) are by far his worst numbers in his 6 seasons there...

I agree 100%.  Dubnyk looked the same in the scrimmage as he did during the season.  Sub-par.  But I heard he's going to split time with Stalock today against Colorado.  Not sure why...

Surprisingly, Dubnyk was not too bad against Colorado, which we lost with a score 2:3. He did not allowed any goals in that exhibition game in comparison to Stalock who allowed 3 goals in our net. Unfortunately, they did not tried Kahkonen to see his potential in that game.

Colorado wasn't attacking as hard.  He still had some fumbles with the puck and at times I saw him struggling to track the puck moving around the ice.  IMO, keeping him as the backup is a sign the country club is still in effect with this Wild team, sadly.
