I think the net time will go 50/50 for the most part for the rest of the season barring injures or bad stretches. Similar to Coleman/MacDonald a while back. With Dale we might even see more switches half way through games like Friday.
Our tandem is very similar to Coleman and MacDonald..aside from the fact that both of those goalies had arguably the best D group in the OHL in front of them. Once Mark realized he couldn't win with that tandem he made a move...I think you'll see something similar this year..and the move could be getting someone they don't even have to pay for. Bailie and Patterson aren't going to lead you to the promised land as a tandem.
