The way this game is played in the NHL now days there's not much to chose between goalies. Too many are unpredictable because the skill has been taken out of the position. It's really just that now.. a game of position.

I read Vancouver was all over us and we deserve to lose. Yet no one is saying Luongo crapped the bed by letting us in it.

Goalie's job is to look big and block shots. They make the occasional save but they're rare. It always saddens me to see what used to be the most exciting position in hockey now become the most mundane.
disagree, different goalies have better strenths. Smaller athletic vs. bigger positional guys. Both are effective but it seems like a good combo of size and athletics is dominating, Quick, Thomas, henrik, and Kipper are 6 ft range (give or take) and athletic but these guys don't grow on trees...
