I disagree. If he doesnt have any confidence, then what good does it do to sit him on the bench? I'd let him play through it and see how he reacts and what he learns from it in the long run. If he cant handle all the pressure and the losing attitude around him, then you know what, maybe he's not cut out to be an elite goaltender.
I would go with a true platoon in net if I were the Islanders. That way each goalie knows when he is going to play. It doesn't matter who the opponent is. Let them switch off every game. That way, there is some consistency and no game is more important than the other.
