I am hoping that what he brings is an ability to NOT lose games. I see the goalie's job as not giving up the bad goal that breaks the team's back. I don't expect him to win games, I expect him to not lose games. I think he cannot be as bad as the goaltending was in the playoffs (is it even possible to get worse goaltending?).
@ $5.66 million I expect him to win games. At $1.7 million I expect a goalie not to lose games. We had a goalie who didn't lose games for us already.
