I'm not going to rail on Rinne yet, I feel just as confident in him as I do with Lindback so far. But it's not just 2 bad starts, I really don't think he's looked sharp yet this season. Could be the injury, or he's not comfortable with the pressure yet, but Pekka can definitely play a lot better than he's shown so far. He's not reacting as fast so far, and he's rarely covering the post.

Having said that, it would certainly be more of an issue if the Preds were losing by 1 every night and it was on mental errors from Rinne. But when we're losing games in this craptacular fashion it's a whole lot more than just the goalie being a bit off.
