I feel erratic goaltending can come with costs in the playoffs ( Tim Thomas)...Hasek was like that too, but he was amazing at it. Probably my favorite goalie outside of Tretiak.

Chad Johnson actually has that calm, no extra movement goaltending. He has starter potential down the road.

BTW, that Logan Couture..what a hockey player. Wow.
Are you serious? That guy has even struggled in the AHL to be the starter and might not even be re-signed as a RFA. He'll be lucky to ever be a real backup in this league.
