No other position can mask other deficiencies as much as the goaltending position, especially when you have a superstar.

Sure, you can win a cup with an okay goalie, but that generally involves a very stacked team. There is no one player that can make up for a mediocre goalie, but a goalie can take a team on his back and go all the way. Montreal is a city that should know all about that.
Do I need to list the goalies that the flyers have passed over in drafts over the years ? The flyers are not proof that goalies are tough to find more like they made choices that showed that goaltending was less important to them as an organization (or they were incompetent at finding it).
