So all of our future goaltenders will be complete sieves?

ST. LOUIS – St. Louis Blues Executive Vice President and General Manager Doug Armstrong announced today the club has named former Blues goalie Ty Conklin as the club’s Goaltender Development Coach.

Conklin, 37, will work with the goaltenders with the Blues’ American Hockey League (AHL) affiliate Chicago Wolves and with goaltenders in the Blues’ system.

The Anchorage, Alaska native spent 11 seasons in the National Hockey League (NHL), including two seasons in St. Louis from 2009-11.

Conklin played in 215 career NHL games, registering a 96-67-21 record, a 2.69 goals-against average and a .906 save percentage.

He was originally signed by Edmonton as an undrafted free agent on April 18, 2001.

Wasn't Conklin the one who was absolutely atrocious on shootouts? Or was that someone else?

Blues goalies all start to run together in your mind after a while.

He was. I know it came up in flashchat that the reason the NHL created the rule that you couldn't change goalies between the OT and shootout (unless injury) was because Edmonton would pull him because he was so terrible. Not sure the truth in that. He was also almost as terrible even with a defense in front of him.

Well Corey Hirsch was nothing special as a player either. You don't need to be good to understand fundamentals and development of young players.
