Mike Smith is not the answer. If we go after anything from Phoenix, it needs to be their goalie coach, Sean Burke. He took Bryzgalov from a very good backup to a star goalie who left for a huge contract, only to be exposed as an average goalie who benefitted from his system. He then took perennial ball of suck Mike Smith and made him look like a star. Without Sean Burke, neither of these guys are star players.
