Instead we have been chasing guys like Chad Johnson or Stajcer who really don't play a complete game, and from what I can tell, don't really have any potential.
To be fair, we really haven't had any goalies with significant upside in Hartford since the lockout aside from Montoya. I don't see what Allaire has to do with Stajcer, really.

That said, I do agree with you. What's with our inability to develop a goalie? We can't even give them credit for Lundqvist. He basically fully developed with Frolunda and came to NY already Vezina caliber.
