You can't even replace that all-star with a semi-capable player, because your goaltender consumes so much of the cap.
Crawford and Emery's stats are near the top of the league. Chicago has proven, as they've proven before, that they don't need outstanding goaltending to win, they just need someone who can hold a team to 2-3 goals (or less). This year, both goaltenders have exceeded those expectations.
Why not, instead of complaining about Crawford, do you not enjoy the statistically dominant season he's having, while knowing the Hawks are only using 2.66M against the cap to get that kind of production from him. Crawford's been great this year. He's let in a few stinkers. Who cares. The team's 34-5-5. It's clearly not effecting them.
Sharp for Rinne? Where do we sign? Any day, everyday all day long. Plan the parade route
