What I'm saying is that as a TEAM, they have limited the oppositions shots, quality scoring chances and yes goals...

Moving forward, I've said the it's likely that IF as a TEAM they were to move into a more offensive look, it would probably come at the sacrifice of some of the smothering defensive play and in turn they'd be likely to give up more shots, quality scoring chances and goals...

Absolutely not that still doesn't make either goalie an NHL #1 goalie. I've actually seen a player or two (other than a goalie) blocking wide open net shots, clearing pucks off goal lines and basically saving goals too!!!

LaBarbera and Ersberg are both UFA after this season. You think they should both be pursued?
