Yes. They hung Smith out to dry plenty of times, but even LOL's was making those saves vs the Ducks. I think they need to alternate Smith/Labarbera each getting one game till Smith gets his **** straight. Even if Labarbera can't hack it either, Smith sure hasn't earned a cemented #1 status. Make them fight over the job.
I would start Labarbera on Saturday if I were coach Tip.
Going into the start of the season, Smith was coming off a fantastic year and Labarbera was coming off a ****** year (statistically at least). Now that we're halfway through the season, Smith has had about an even split of good games, average games, and bad games. Labarbera has been good when he's been asked to fill in or even start, and so has Chad Johnson.
I'm not wanting to start a goalie controversy here in Phoenix but I think it's just a smart move. Give Barbs the start Saturday, if he does well, keep starting him until he has a bad game. Might send a message.
