And like the other guy said, we have Giggy & Varlamov. Get out of our Koolaid when it comes to goalies we are happy with what we have FOR ONCE IN YEARS since Roy retired.

He struggled a little bit at the start of the year but the kid had a MASSIVE amount of pressure on him after the trade on top of the plane crash that killed a lot of people who was very close to. He finally calmed down and Giggy had a big part in that. Anyone who watched Varlamov the last half of the season will tell you one of the key factors for us even being in playoff contention was Varlamov and he also played absolutely lights out in the Worlds for a Russian team that plays a pure offensive style.

Tournaments like that are usually nightmares for goalies because of all the open ice and the collection of talent. He absolutely shut the door and was one of their best players.
