Congrats on this once in a life-time experience! That'll be something to tell the grandkids one day... Be sure to save all the press clippings and any footage you can get.
Exactly. To me, the case and point of why they had a non-NHL goalie was the Getzlaf move where he circled the net and roofed it (the best move of the night IMO). An NHL goalie (or maybe even you without being told not to poke check) likely would have taken the puck from him when he was in close, before he circled the net.
So to me, that goalie did exactly what he was supposed to. Anything less and they might as well have shoved one of those cardboard cutouts with a five hole and the four corners free into the net
