It's painfully obvious that the 67's are going to have to go out and find a goalie. Sure, the team in front of them is weak, but neither of these two goalies has distinguished themselves this year despite plenty of chances to do so.
When you look at the 67's roster, it is pretty clear that they are trying to tank. They have failed to take their maximum number of 20 year olds, playing only one instead of three. 20 year olds are key to providing you with some scoring depth and some physical play. They are unlikely to be your leading scorers (if they were, they would be playing pro) but their experience is invaluable. If you are trying to win, you have them.
They are playing one import short as well. In fact, their one import, and one 20 year old, are the same guy. The 67's have obviously decided that the best course of action is to be as young and as bad, as they can be, land Sean Day, and start the rebuild next year. Jeff Hunt can't be too surprised, though, that no one wants to make the trek to Scotiabank Place right now to see a team that he and his Coach/GM have deliberately decided to make as bad as possible.
