1) Whine about the GM for lack of goaltending
2) GM fixes the problem
3) Whine about the GM for too much goaltending depht

Rinse a repeat. Some people just can't be satisfied with anything.

Great point.. new players, new coaching staff... system was non-existent in those first 6 games

Andy stats without those games would look very good

That said, as others have pointed out, we have one of the best goaltending situations in franchise history. We have 3 goalies who've all had a great 2012 and all look like potential starting goalies in the NHL. After waiting for so long for just this kind of organizational competition, why would we get rid of it right away??
Because we had to pay a lot to get it!

Elliott and two 2nd round picks! We can't afford to wait anymore! Let's trade them all fast because in 15 years they won't have any value left! Let's get more draft picks
