Let me restate:
At Halak and Price age, almost every goalie improve.
Goalie who does not improve are the exception not the rule.
Anyone has a good argument to prove that Halak or Price will not improve?
Altough Price lacked consistency, I have seen games of him that were off the charts. Consistency will come with maturity and age.
About splitting the games, let Martin handle this.
That's his job.
There was only one complain by our goalies this season: Halak was benched for a month...
What I understand: we have two great goalies, let them compete to win number 1.
One will play 47-57 games and the other will play 25-35 games.
Seems obvious to me with goalies who just turned 23 and 25...
And the one who plays 25 games will see his trade value decrease greatly, especially if it's Price, so that would make 3 consecutive strugglish years.
I just can't believe how people around here don't feel the necessity of dealing either one while they're still young, relatively far from being UFAs, and while we have HUGE weaknesses around the roster in front of both goalies.
You really want us to rely 100% on goaltenders one more year without taking the chance of actually having a great goaltender back there, and an important player giving us a good 82 games in the process?
The best way to improve this team right now is by dealing one of both goalies and by getting some good player(s) in return, to make our team deeper and better. Because we just CAN'T hope to win it all with the team we have currently. We're a very good 2nd tier team (1st half of the 2nd tier of the league), but we're still not a 1st tier team. Halak played like a freaking beast all playoffs long and we still got beat up in 5 against Philly cause our players were NOT capable of adjusting to the opponent's style of play.
Having two great goalies is luxury. And that's a thing we can't afford with all the glaring weaknesses around our lineup.
