Anderson, Fasth, Crawford, Bobrovsky and Rask are league's top 5 goalies at this point... All could very well be 15th-20th best in a year .. All were not in top 15 last year.
Unless we are getting a Lundqvist or Rinne there are no guarantees..
Dubnyk keeps us in games ala Crawford\Rask etc and it is up our stars up front to deliver..
The Detroit model for their last win wasn't "a bunch of star forwards and mediocre goaltending", though. It was "star forwards, bad goaltending, one of the three or four best defensemen of all time, along with Kronwall, Rafalski and Chelios on the back end beside him".
