Uhhh, just about every goalie who had a fast start and was overworked. When you have a goalie coming from a lighter workload, you ease them in. We burned out Emery last year (though it turned out he had a severe issue) and you can go through and see what happens in the postseason to 90% of goalies who start around 70 games.
Bob might be able to keep this stretch of play going right now, but it could cost us in the stretch run of the season. You play to win every night, but you don't compromise the future either. Boosh is still on the roster and needs to be ready to step in whenever. Doesn't hurt at all to start him tonight.
