I forget who said it, but Halak really is a guy who blocks shots.
Yep. Halak lets the puck hit him. He has no elite goaltending skills and many times does not even know where the puck is.

With all his inconsistency, injury problems, and whining to the media, he still is our best goalie by a fair margin when he settles in.
Ok, who suggested going with Allen/Elliott?
