I'm all for patience, but this team has a window (or rather had one) and patience and the wrong moves have lead us to where we are today. If you're suggesting we just continue to be a cellar dweller, then by all means, stick with average, inexperience goalies. They've done us well so far.


Good thing the Bruins didn't take Kolzig instead as he was offered.
Yeah that would have been horrible re: Kolzig.

Platooning is fine but you will create a MESS with what you suggest. Luongo and Miller are not the type of "platooning" goalies you want. Getting a vet can alot of times undermine the confidence of a young goalie (Vokoun / Neuvirth).

Miller and Luongo would create a huge distraction and are signed for a million years.

No..what you want is to expedite the process and go get a high price name goalie to take over and be the starter for the forseeable future.

Thats what I call impatient. Holtby won't develop playing 15-20 games a year.
