Good consistent goaltending is always always better than one hit wonders. As far as Mike Smith is concerned, he's a one hit wonder until he can prove otherwise. He's already 30 too, he's at the plateau of his career, he could potentially improve, but he's not a prospect anymore. He's an aging goaltender who played a very good season in front of a team known for inflating goaltending stats.

Those are the facts.
The fact that players like Brian Elliot and hell, even Brayden Holtby are even in the conversation to be between the pipes in Sochi shows what a mess our goaltending situation is.
