Some good quotes from Vanecek in here, sounds like he is coming in looking to take the starting job.

Yeah as far as motivation goes, there's tons of it for both Vanecek and Blackwood.  Both want to be the guy who can get 50+ starts, and Blackwood's playing for his next contract.  Both are approaching that crossroads where they're still young, but teams aren't quite sure if they're legit good #1 goalies.  Huge year for both.

I’m hoping that competition has both of them on top of their games. Then Fitz can make a decision on who he keeps

It’s 2022, we kinda need both as long as the contracts are not bad.

It’ll depend how much money Blackwood is looking for if he has a good year. And… You have to figure at some point the one playing less will want out.

Well that’s true. Let’s hope Blackwood plays well and it becomes an issue as to who is our starter.
