In the end,that maroon just ruined the confidence in both our goalies. Props to Carlyle for doing the right thing now and just running with Gus.
Reimer got 2 straight shutouts to start February, the first one coming off a back to back, before he really started to stink it up. Can't really blame Wilson for starting Reimer to start the month. You aren't gonna sit a goalie shortly after he just got 2 straight shutouts.
I will agree with you and say that Wilson did make an error by sticking by Reimer for too long. By that time, Gus was cold and back to his terrible play.
Part of this is on Wilson as he should of platooned both goaltenders more effectively to keep them both sharp. But, part of this is on Gus as a good goaltender should be able to stay sharp without playing. It's what makes a good goaltender.
