Likely Buffalo starter: Jhonas Enroth – If Patrick Lalime had a more accurate title than “backup goalie” in Buffalo, what would it be? Would it be unofficial extra goalie coach, professional Ryan Miller buddy or what? It just seems like a silly situation, but maybe there’s more than what meets the eye. (Source.)

Likely Anaheim starter: Dan Ellis – Unless Jonas Hiller unexpectedly manages to get back to full health, Ellis should get most – if not all – of the starts in Anaheim for the rest of the season.
