What the hell happened to Poulin and Nilsson? Both with 3.00+ GAAs and 90% or less SV%. In comparison to other goalies in the AHL thats pretty miserable numbers.
Poulin and Nilsson's regression is a major concern. One of them should have played well enough to be the backup this year with the probability of being the starter next year. The idea is to get better not worse during your stay in the AHL. And if the defense is the problem then get one of them into the NHL (probably Poulin) before their confidence is destroyed.
