Gone are the days of guys starting 70 games and you can't throw away 20+ games on a bad backup goalie, the races are way too close. Your backup can easily be the difference between making the playoffs or not.

People act like having a good young goalie and a veteran is a bad thing. The Canucks and Bruins have been pretty successful with it in recent years.


then why is Vancouver trying to trade Luongo and Thomas reportedly is reportedly taking the year off because he did not want to be traded or wanted control of the situation?
Good goaltending is good however there is a problem when you have two good goalies and it never ends well until one is traded
