If anything, today's goaltending advantage is having 2 capable guys and riding the one that's hot instead of relying on, and ultimately burning out, your go to guy. It will be interesting if a team like Tampa can parlay that into post-season success despite having the worst team goaltending numbers in the league.
Interesting point of view and recent history shows you might be right. Still I don't think Hank will be or should be burned out this spring, Biron has been good enough to give him the rests he needs.
