They know very well that the goaltending has been bad, but strongly believe that if the forwards and defense are so skilled and deep, then a mediocre goalie can be good enough to win a cup. I really hope that this year is a wakeup call, and I've been calling for a sacrifice in depth in other areas in exchange for a good goalie since I joined this board 4 years ago. But, until the organization changes its ways and I see it with my own eyes that they acquire a top goalie, I don't believe it will happen, as much as I want it to.
Last year should have been a pretty ****ing clear wake up call.

It wasn't.

I don't trust Holmgren to suddenly realize goaltending is our biggest undoing. If he had acknowledged it when we were playing musical goaltenders last year, we probably have a Cup by now and are on the way to another.
