If this team had Quick, Lundqvist, Kipper in his prime, or Brodeur, do you think that they would be this bad? Probably not.
Yes. They still have horrible breakouts, below average D-core, small forwards. We still score 0 goals tonight no matter who was in net, and we'd still win nothing with the current roster regardless of the goalie, as well. The rest are not nearly good enough for ANY goalie to make up for. That blows the '80% goal-tending' theory out of the water, if anything does.
