Goaltending makes or breaks you, and the guys in that position tend to be streaky. It's sad for us, true, but what can you do? I don't think we could realistically expect to be much better at the goaltending position, from a franchise perspective. We have a top-10 goaltender on a cold streak. 14 other teams aren't even in the post-season. I'm not really worried about our goaltending. We could have improved the D, though, to help insure against our goaltender going on a cold streak. We didn't improve our D.
Very good points...but it always stings more when it happens to us I don't care about NJ or Dallas or Ottawa. I expect a lot from Theo. He is in a "small" market and he's getting paid his 6 million. He has to perform. Brodeur has 3 cups. As far as I'm concerned Theo has to play well, regardless of how everybody else is doing. He has to HATE giving up a goal and right now he's rolling over way too much.
