How will Colorado fill hole in net?

Losing a future Hall of Famer won't leave Colorado goaltenders looking like Swiss cheese, but it's unlikely the Avalanche will hand over the starting job to Swiss backup David Aebischer now that Patrick Roy is retiring. Aebischer has played in 69 career games and only one playoff game in a mop-up role in three seasons with the Avalanche. His 32-25-3 with a 2.19 goals-against average and .917 save percentage is respectable but remember that he usually played against teams from the bottom of the standings while Roy played the big games.
