Miska has been a solid tandem option in net for the Colorado Eagles. He’s been particularly strong of late and, arguably, is the best goaltender in the AHL on an AHL (only) contract.
We’re gonna have to find another goalie to wear that crown (and hint: there aren’t many goalies in the AHL not signed to NHL contracts). This is a market efficiency the Avs are taking advantage of, picking up one of the best goalies in the North America not signed to an NHL contract.
As it stood, the Avs were 3 goalies deep, for all intents and purposes. This signing gives the Avs a 4th strong option they hope they never have to use.
