What's the goal here, to win Monday's game or to make the playoffs and maybe win a round or four? The bottom line is that we're not making the playoffs with Dan Ellis as our No. 1 goalie. He's hot now, and that's great. We got two points tonight that we probably didn't deserve, but that's a backup goalie's job. We're just not used to seeing it.

If we're going to do any real damage this season, we need Cam Ward to be a top-10 goalie. Cam Ward won't be a top-10 goalie sitting on the bench.

It's a "long view" vs. "short view" thing. Plus, Cam was 4-0 against Boston last year and stopped 139 of 144 shots. So I think Cam starts Monday. If he continues to fight the puck, then we have this conversation about Friday against Ottawa.
