Wizards Goalkeeping Situation

Kevin Hartman played every minute of the Wizards 34 games this past season. One of the only players in the league to play every minute of his team's games. The number 2 position is still locked up by Eric Kronberg. With the drafting of Andrew Kartunen, the Wizards look to have filled their number 3 keeper spot for the upcoming season.

Hartman's not getting any younger, but is Kronberg ready to step up? I haven't seen enough of him to know for sure if he is or not. It's most likely that he won't be challenging Hartman for the number 1 shirt this season. That said Hartman does turn 34 this upcoming season. The Wizards have to be looking towards the future in net as well. Right now that future appears to be Kronberg.

Kronberg needs to get some first team minutes this season, even if it's in the open cup. If he's in the Wizards plans to one day have the number 1 shirt he needs some time.
