I'll pretty much take every first line forward over any top 10 goalie any day.
The theory that goaltending is important has gotten everyone nowhere since at least the start of the post-lockout era.
In fact, you can't even really be sure how much of an impact goalies had in the dead puck era because it was called the dead puck era for a reason.
You want to trade our best EV forward just because JVR is turning into something legitimate for a goalie that's not going to get you any closer and may even cost you a deep playoff run because of your investment in him both in terms of roster players and salary space?
Nope. Versteeg? Sure. Carle? Sure. Carter? Hell no.
Once again, the impact of goaltenders is highly overrated.
Wow. I thank the hockey gods that you are a mere fan and not the general manager. Every team has at least a first line forward but only 10 teams have a real bonafide goalie.
I dare you to start a thread to see how many Flyer fans would trade Carter for the goalies listed above. I don't think you'd have much support.
