Anyone else getting a bad feeling about goaltending?

Kipper won't be putting vezina like numbers this year, but at the same time, once he finds his groove, he won't be costing the teams wins either through poor play. A far bigger priority should be getting the defense in order, which as a whole, has been awful in the first two games.
The Canucks might have one of the best run and gun teams and their goalies do fine, Niemi was able to post better numbers than Kipper when on Chicago both aren't 1-1 comparisons but Kipper's play before in offensive system is worrying as he doesn't do well when he sits cold for a while he needs constant shots. Bryz still put up better numbers then Kipper in Philly and that Defense wasn't great last year, I am not saying the sky is falling but I am saying we should be cautious as Kipper hasn't shown the ability to thrive in offensive systems.
