Ramo Recalled

620 WDAE is reporting that the Lightning have recalled goaltender Karri Ramo from Springfield of the AHL. Ramo, a 20 year old 6th round pick from the 2004 NHL Entry Draft, is 8-3-0 this season with a 2.89 GAA and .911 save percentage with the Falcons. The netminder has won Bolt Prospects Prospect of the Week honors for the past two weeks going undefeated in four starts over that span.

All hail King Ramo! Its

All hail King Ramo! Its more than likely to sit a game or two behind one of the other two goalies but hey, it means he'll have hockey cards haha

I'd love to see him play, I truly believe he is the real deal and many of my overseas friends believe the same

Odd

The only reasons I can see him being called up are:

If they plan on playing him, which given the teams we play over the next few weeks, seems like a really bad idea.

If Denis/Holmqvist are hurt/sick. Which would make the most sense

If there is a trade coming.

The first reason almost seems impossible, cause I can't imagine them playing him against a Buffalo or an Anaheim, and I don't see the point in taking away time he could be playing in the AHL to ride the bench. I guess we'll all see how this turns out.

VISA

Erlendsson is reporting it's because of work visa issues with Denis.

Holmqvist to start Saturday vs. Ottawa with Ramo serving as backup.

I See

That's like a flashing a bright red new bike in front of a kid at Christmas and then taking it back to the store. Not cool.

At least Boutin will get some playing time this weekend.
