I didn't mean to imply Denis was the right fit for the Nucks (they can't pry him from the CBJ anyway). Posters here are right, if the Nucks move for another goaltender, a vet with good playoff history would seem to be what they would need, not a talented, but playoff-unproven young guy.
But, on the subject of durability, Denis easily is an upgrade on Cloutier. Statistically, Cloutier is slightly better, but has played less games in the last few years and is behind a significantly better defense, so I think that point is a wash at best. My point is that I don't think Cloutier is that much better than Denis, if at all. If Denis had been in the pipes for the Nucks the last few years, I don't think they'd be worse off.
My REAL point though is that I came into work early today. And I'm bored.
