However, look at what I just bolded from you. This mentality is flat out wrong.

In TODAY's NHL playoff hockey, you MUST cover everything down low and block as many shots as you could. No more of this risk goaltending.
Well, look at what I bolded. He clearly failed at it.

The reason I say "bail out" is because in perfect world, all shots are blocked prior to getting to the net and all the time is spent in the offensive zone. What separates a good goalie from a bad goalie if all that is asked is making a basic safe, as his defense got it all covered? Making that simple safe? Then I dunno why we're paying $4mil for goalies and paying $4 for the next 4 years.
