If I were the coach next season, I'd play each guy 41 games - unless one shows himself to be clearly superior to the other.

And, in case you're wondering, I'd alternate the goalies in the upcoming playoffs. If the Kings have them both under contract, and don't want to favor one over the other, then give them both starts. There doesn't seem to be an expectation of doing much damage in the playoffs, so why not?
Lot easier said than done.

I can't ever recall where a winning goaltender didn't get the start in the next game. Could be a recipe for a disaster and possibly a termination of the coach.
