The debate is "WHAT IS THE PROPER GAME TIME?"

A 3.22GAA vs. a 1.65? An .880 Sv% vs a .940Sv%?

A win two out of three games beats a win two of five.

Rick has looked rusty....he needs time and he has an injury last year from not being cautious in returning (being overplayed). Slow it down and give the better performing goalie more time. If Rick deserves more time, his game will say so. It will 100% without question be better than Rollie's, which it has not been this year, even with the TB performance.

But the best man doesn't win on LI. The better marketing chip does.That's why we drafted Rick to begin with.

If Rick played three games to Rollie's five, just how awful would that be on the coach's part?
