So I know I won't take anything for granted.
As for the goalies, Patterson in my mind has been the #1 for nearly two months now. Bailie was good in the first period last night but let in 2 weak ones in the second, and one in the third. I like what he's done for this team but there is a reason why he is an OA while Patterson is likely to be drafted this year. I don't see any moves happening with the goalies and I think the Knights as a team are confident enough in both of them and are confident enough in themselves to play a good defensive game unlike last night.
When the WJC is all said and done is Mermis going to be a PP specialist and send Liberati in the stands or do we see a d-man (Raine) moved?
That is tough, I love what Liberati brings to the table the kid is not scared to skate with the puck. But then you have Raine who brings a solid defensive physical game to the table. If Raine is not dealt he should be suited up most nights but Liberati will be missed for sure. That gives us a solid back end next year though which I was afraid of not being able to have.
