I recall one time when Vokoun was dissatisfied with his play--he sent himself to the minors. "I sit on bus." (Or something similar.) I can't remember for sure but seems like he was backup to Dunham at the time. It really did him a lot of good. I think the key is knowing that it is your own responsibility to improve. There may have been valid reasons for not getting a save that results in a goal, but ultimately it is the goalie's job to stop the puck.
Lindback has to take control and fix the problems. If his teammates aren't helping him out, he must tell them what he needs for them to do...and when. If he isn't seeing the puck well, he needs to figure out if he needs contacts or if his hair is getting in the way (ha! That happened to Logan--he had this long shock of hair on one side of his face because it was oh, so cool, and couldn't see the puck from that direction. Once he figured it out, the hair got tucked away.)
He's the one getting paid the big bucks...he needs to fix the problems.
