definitely not trying to contradict you because i agree with the idea you're getting at, but i'm pretty sure the last two off-seasons would have played out much differently had we been in chicago's shoes.

for example, if carter buried that chance with about 1:20 to go in game 6 (or even if niemi just didn't make a good play on it) and the flyers pulled out G7 on the road, all the talk of carter choking would disappear and suddenly we wouldn't be in the market for a big-name goalie at the cost of either richards or carter.

edit: on a side note, i'm glad this thread coincided with studying for finals so that i didn't say something that would make me look like a fool months later when the improbable came true.
