I care who is at fault. *g*

And I didn't comment specifically on Smith. Just said I wouldn't be surprised if he was better than Turco. People confuse my ragging on the defense with a love of Turco. I can take or leave Turco, just like I can take or leave Stephan. I just loathe the defense right now and believe significant changes need to be made back there if this team is to succeed in the future, not just this season. If people are going to harp on the goalies every game, I figure I can harp on the defense too.

And, again, I don't have a problem with Stephan playing. I just think using the logic "Stephan is a better option at goalie than Turco, therefore he should play" is incredibly faulty. I don't think the coaching staff trusts him, however. Whether that's good, bad or indifferent is up to you. But I think it's pretty clear at this point that they don't see Stephan as someone they can turn to in a pinch.
