Goaltending was not a problem for much of that time as this team had absolutely no system at all when you look at the coverage on those goals.
You can't pick and choose what games to use, every goaltender becomes a top starter that way. Brodeur has been letting in more unscreened shots from the point then I ever seen and god help us if a forward actually tips a shot. The saves we remember are the ones that Brodeur creates himself but recovers on.
As far as a stopgap solution, we will see how long 41 and 40 year goaltenders will last, out of the NHL for a year and a half. 2013-14 is not going to be a pretty year for NJ. They have quite a few UFA's and RFA's that may not like where the team is going without a starting goaltender.
