Continued: Wild unlikely to reach high for a goalie in draft

“It wasn’t always the simplest way to go about things and wasn’t always pretty, but we got good enough goaltending to do what we did,” he said. “If all three of them get hurt at the same time or we run into crazy issues again, we’ll have to react.”

Last year, Fletcher had several Plan C’s (and D’s and E’s). At one point, he nearly brought back Jose Theodore. He eventually acquired Bryzgalov.

“There are usually more goalies looking for jobs than there are jobs, so historically there will be options during the season if something happens,” Fletcher said. “I like our goaltending. I recognize the concern. We all share it. I think even the goaltenders share it.

“But Nik’s in a much better spot. Darcy has another year of maturity under his belt, and we’re hopeful on Josh. We’ve got to bank on two of them being able to step up and play.”
