You heard right friend. Ray Emery, the goalie that saved the Senators' season last year and backstopped them to the Stanley Cup Finals, will not play in the Sens season-opener against Toronto.
I guess this is simply Martin Gerber's opportunity to show that he is a #1 goalie in the NHL. If he does well, maybe that will raise his stock and allow him to be traded (something Gerber wants anyway). If he doesn't do well, then we can thank God that the Sens still have their starting goalie waiting on the bench or in the pressbox.
