Kevin Weekes is a good friend of inGoal Magazine and one of the nicest guys you’ll meet in hockey. So when I saw a campaign starting (via Preds on the Glass) to have him signed as the Nashville backup this year, I had to share it with our readers. Jeremy Gover at Section303.com wrote a nice piece on the idea and if you discount the fact that Kevin has been off the ice for a year, much of it makes sense. I know that for most guys that year would be huge, but Kevin is a fitness fanatic and I have no doubt he could strap on the pads today.

This is no Rory Fitzpatrick all-star write in campaign. Jeremy is quite serious. What do you think?

    I’d vote for him, anything to get him off the air. He’s a great guy, a decent goalie, but not a great commentator at all. I’m sure I’m not the only one who feels this way.

    He was always an entertaining goalie to watch, but contrary to Jase’s opinion … I love him on the air! I like that a former goalie is on a major sports network broadcast team and is relatively ‘new’ and younger(thinking of and comparing to Darren Pang here). I especially love that Weekes brings a bit of the kind of random and nicknaming humor to a broadcast similar to John Buccigross and Barry Melrose had when they did NHL2Night.
