With Zemgus Girgensons returning to the Sabres lineup, there had to be an odd man out to make room. Two names were at the top of a potential move: Eric Comrie and Tyson Jost, and as we now know Jost was put on waivers.
Overall, last season saw Jost be a decent role player. He wasn’t much of a stand out player in any area, instead he was just more of a penalty killer who was valuable in helping his team keep puck possession. Nevertheless, Jost just hasn’t been consistent which is why he was put on the chopping block.
Although Eric Comrie still has a spot on the team, there’s undoubtedly a clock ticking as the ice thins for him. Comrie is one of the worst goaltenders this season.
Comrie has allowed 23 goals on 168 shots, giving him a .863 save percentage and a 4.01 GAA in 7 starts. His poor performance makes what was a very strong training camp more obscure, as it goes to show just how much of a false perspective training camp could give.
