Yes. I also watched Neuvirth prove no one in their right *ing mind should commit their Stanley Cup hopes to him. The Caps ABSOLUTELY needed a goalie, and now they have one. Holtby is a non-entity for the Caps trying to win a Stanley Cup this year... and Neuvirth may be great in the years ahead, but he ain't anywhere close to being ready right now. Similar to the reasons why I wanted Vokoun here, he's the ideal guy for them to bring those guys along behind and release to full-time starter in a year or two.
In all seriousness, if you think what Neuvirth did was all that impressive, then you should be furious that the Flyers didn't just go with Bob.
