I never said anywhere that Desjardins is better than Ramo. I do, however, think he's better for our situation. If Price is going to play the majority of the games then a cheap backup like Desjardins next year ($500K) would help. To get a guy like Ramo over here, I'm almost positive we'd have to off no less than $1.5M-$2M which just isn't feasible for a backup goalie.
And sure, you can bash the defense. I never said they were good so don't try to put words in my mouth there. I simply stated that that their goaltending was horrendous too.
Hornqvist? Seriously? Ramo looked like crap. Marc Denis?
Smith started to turn the tables when he came aboard.
In Ramo's second season, (which is the one you've taken the defense from), Mike Smith posted; 2.62 GAA, .916 SV%.
In Ramo's rookie year, he had a better defense with Kuba & Boyle also in the mix.
Desjardins is not an NHL calibre goalie so any idea that has him as our #2 is a bad one. Right now he is TB's #4 goalie and their goaltending is less than envious.
