I think people are really overrating Gerber here. He looked decent, not great. If Smid doesn't knock the puck out of the air, then that's two bad goals in half a game last night. He's a good insurance policy, but I'd rather go with either of the young guys in the NHL at this point. I think Dubnyk's looked solid, and JDD is what he is; an athletic goalie who will get caught out of position once in a while but can also make saves few goalies can. His numbers weren't that bad last year either, I think he proved he can play in the NHL.

I think this is another case of fans warming up to the shiny new toy and choosing to overlook any of the negatives. I'm guilty of it too. We did it with Cole, POS, Lupul, etc etc.
