Obviously you need more than just goaltending, but there are solid pieces in place elswhere(Markov Subban Gorges Emelin Cole Pacioretty DD Plekanec Eller) and a few more need to be added.

Phillie has never been able to overcome poor goaltending, that's why their last cup win was almost 40 years ago.
Well said!

It drives me nuts when people dismiss successful components of sports teams. People need to realize that we have a much better core than Nashville and it is their template that I suspect Bergevin is following. The difference is that we can afford to pay and keep top offensive players as we are not a budget team.
