Losing because your team simply can't score enough is frustrating for sure, but losing because your clubs goalie can't make the basic saves just kills everything.
Valid point. And truthfully with rielly looking poised to be an NHLer sooner rather than later, personally i could jusitfy trading Gardiner for the reasons you gave. But TO manegment made it pretty clear that Gards is staying put, so it will be interesting to see what we give instead.
