playing with house money means that he has nothing to lose. if he has to play and stinks it up, you think that was nothing to lose?

you are just wrong on that account. if ovechkin scores 8 goals in the first six games of the playoffs and the caps lose 4 games to 2 because holtby couldnt stop a beachball, do you really think thats house money?
Yup bc hes a young goalie who should be in the minors right now. Last month he was our 3rd goalie and now he gets the keys to the caps playoff run.

If he plays well he can earn the job for the future
If he plays bad he was the 3rd goalie playing in the playoffs before he was developmently ready forced in bc of injury.

Worst case is holtby is goalie 2 next year just like the plan always was, hence houses money.
