However, I don't see how Bowman can rationalize going with the same awful tandem after this next year. He was in the perfect position to go out and sign or trade for a 1b goalie at the very least. Harding, Vokoun, Thomas, Schneider, Bernier are all possible targets. Why wouldn't we wait it out, see who is available and for how much and then go after them?
It's not like Emery is going to be gobbled up quickly by some team this off-season... if nothing else works, fine, go with Emery. But, ****, I wish he would've just given the market a chance. Everyone and their mother knows that our goaltending is our weakest link, Bowman should've recognized this and fixed it.
Unless he has something up his sleeve going into next year, there's no way I can justify showing such blind faith in those two on the same team. One of them HAS to go. Risking this same type of year again is unacceptable. I'm very quickly going to start losing support for Bowman if those two are our goalies next year.
Maybe if everyone wasn't so god damned happy with Emery all year, he would not have resigned him, and by extension kept Crawford as the starter. We get what we asked for.
