Spoken like someone who has no clue about the importance and difficulty of the position.
The fact that Vancouver has been a perennial powerhouse and Cup contender since Luongo joined the Canucks is not a mere coincidence.
Lundqvist - Rangers
Rinne - Predators
Quick - Kings (and their pathetic offense)
Likewise, these bottom tier teams:
Mason - Blue Jackets
Roloson/Garon - Lightning
Reimer/Gustavsson - Leafs
Of course, the position isn't the be-all-end-all for success in the sport, but it is very damn well important, and *by far* the hardest position to fill.
Dallas has an elite, top 5 goaltender in Lehtonen. He's only 28, and easily has 7-8 years of elite hockey left in him. Lock him up long term.
