I think with Emery's injury history, and the perception that this team is carrying whatever goaltender happens to be in net...I'm not sure Emery will get that great of a contract.
A few people have said it before. Crawford's confidence scares me. He is very Huet-like in that when the chips start to stack against him, he seems to let the whole deck of cards collapse. We've seen it over and over with both Huet and Crawford.
Is Crawford the better goalie when he is confident? I would say absolutely yes...but you're always a goal or two away from that possibly imploding.
