Better goaltending and we may win game 2. Game 3 may go differently if we get avstop on the second goal.
Disregarding that fact, Brian Boucher isn't going to lead you to a championship. I don't care how deep you are, and that is on Holmgren. Unfortunately, this was an obvious problem 9 months ago.
Neither is Leighton, and neither is Bob (as a rookie).
I know it's been discussed, but people should give props to Yzerman. On January 1st, his team was in first place in the SE, but he knew that there was no chance his team was going anywhere with his current goalies. He traded for Roloson -- something Holmgren should have done two years in a row -- and it's proven to be a difference maker.
Holmgren's inability to see his goaltending's weaknesses -- or at lest not do anything about it -- is so damn frustrating.
