Aren't Vernon and Barrasso near Hall of Fame goalies, who won Cups again at the pinnacle of their careers...
Look at the last Stanley Cup winners goalies...
Khabibulin (top 5 IMO)
Brodeur(#1 in the world)
Belfour (hall of famer)
Hasek (hall of famer)
Richter...at the time he won, was one of the NHL's top 5 goalies
All i'm saying is that teams like Philly and St-Louis have always addressed their goalie situation with quick fixes, those can get you into the playoffs because you have good teams, but it's only a matter of time before you crash and burn
