Miller is in a league of his own with his dumbazzery. He says some of the stupidest things ever.

Brouwer is like Miller-lite but he does back it up on the ice with some scoring and bringing a consistent physical game.

Laich does talk but nothing inflammatory for the most part or blatently stupid.

Actually if you recall...Carey, Kolzig and Dafoe were all young promising goalies. Sorta like what we have now. The more you have the more chances one turns out to be your franchise goalie.

Carey and Kolzig both won a vezina and Dafoe was a solid NHL goalie.

Carey just didn't love the game and true he tanked. But thats the beauty of not putting all your eggs in one basket and waiting for them to hatch

Would I prefer to pay a goalie north of $5-6 mil a season? Hell no. Would the Caps benefit from the upgrade to a Luongo (who I've suggested in the past)? Hell YES.

if you're a defensive/coin flip team, averaging a soft goal a game kills you.
You know at one point Luongo was a prospect...some great GM out there decided rather than letting him develop to go out for a new shiny toy.

All the goalies in the league were prospects at one point. You have to have patience with young players or you will be likened to Mike Milbury and his parade of impatient trades.
