Maybe I'm a bit biased as a [soccer] goalie myself, but it pisses me off how quickly people are to irrationally use goalies as scapegoats.
Scrivens has done nothing to even hint that he belongs at the NHL level as a backup. Maybe that will change in the future. Reimer at least as shown some success in the NHL.
