‘When pressed on the status of the team’s backup goalie in response to the overall health of the team, Darcy defended Patrick Lalime. “I think Patty [Lalime] contributes a lot in different ways. Obviously, you’re talking about playing and he’s not playing and that’s what you sign on for. If you sign up to back up Ryan Miller, you sign on to back up in the case of Brodeur, or [Vancouver Canucks goalie Roberto] Luongo or players like that, that’s the deal. Your responsibility is to be ready to be called when you’re called on to play as frequently or infrequently as that might be.”‘
