Which was misguided...because we went from the 5th best SVPCT in the NHL, to the 18th so far.

And the injuries matter...inability to remain healthy means you're inconsistent. Look, he's hurt again (clearly, despite what Holmgren is saying if he's not getting in net tonight against Minnesota).

And there's no way to make a logical argument that Biron was "really bad." 5th and 8th in the league in team SVPCT. The Biron/Nitty tandem was quite good.



So has Emery. So has every goalie in the NHL.

Last year Biron turned it on down the stretch and was a big reason why we even made it to the playoffs. The year before he got us to the ECF pretty much on his own (with a bit of help from Umberger).

Why was there a "goalie controversy" at one point last year then if Biron did that good?




Anyway, to get away from Biron yet again... (I dont think he will be back)

I would love Pekka Rinne on this team. Maybe even Harding.
