Goaltending.

1. I think Moose is our #1 guy, at least for now. Normally stats don't tell the whole story, but in this case it's pretty damn obvious:

(Goalie, W-L, GAA, Svg.)
Hedberg: 9-6, 2.43, .921
Pavelec: 9-11, 3.52, .903

Just look at that. That's more than a goal a game against Pavelec. And having a 9-6-something record would be a lot better than the record we have now. Just look at the standings: everybody in the East except for Carolina has a reasonable chance of making the playoffs. We keep dropping games like we have been this month, we're in trouble.

Starting him once a week or so, to give Hedberg the occasional rest, is fine. Starting him every other game isn't.

2. There's a chance that the Thrashers are gonna have to go through the whole breed-a-goaltender process all over again. Hedberg isn't getting any younger--he's 36--,Pavelec we already know about, and Lehtonen is a crapshoot. Anybody up-and-coming in case of a long-term worst-case-scenario?
