ML got cut NO slack because his cap # is low. NONE.

we ALL criticized him for blowing our chance at the CUP.

NOBODY said: "It's OK, i know we lost the CUP, but his cap # is low"

no. he got criticized just as much an any goalie would have & should have. Even higher paid ones.
Your argument is poo poo. Leighton stunk. Bryz stinks, so they're similar in that regard. Difference comes in when we could afford better skaters with Leighton than with Bryz.

Even though we won the trade, Carter had to be dealt in order to afford Bryz. I was never a Carter fan, but he did more for the team on a nightly basis than Bryz ever has.

I'm not against paying goalies big money, by the way, but it has to be the right guy. It's just frustrating when we obviously had a gem with Bobrovsky, but ****ing Snider wants another Cup before his heart stops working, and we all have to suffer for it.
