Don't get me wrong guys. Some of those games by Mase and Ellis were frustrating as heck to me.

But I am saying I don't expect goaltending to be a strength. I believe it's a fallacy to say "we sucked last year so we'll be better" since Ellis was a part of that inconsistency.

We'll be better in goal, but no way does Ellis reproduce a 92+ save percentage IMO. If he comes in at .910+ than it'll be a very good year, but it won't be what carries the Preds. I know nobody is saying that of course. But I don't discount what Ellis did down the stretch. It's not like our great scoring carried us in because the goaltending suddenly became only consistent.
