Alright so how do we get this world class goaltending. Hell who is this world class goaltenders?

Picking top notch goaltending in this league is impossible most of the goalies seem to be headcases. Hell the Leafs just made the friggen playoffs with Reimer and Scrivens. Buffalo is failing hard with the graces of Miller who was once seen as a top 5 goalie. Calgary hasn't done much with Kipper over the last 5 years.

After Lundquist & Rinne there aren't many goalies that teams can count on in this league. But look at the Rags they are barely hanging onto a playoff spot. Hell look at Chicago they have Crawford and Emery.

So not sure what you're going on about but the fact is its who can build the most complete team in today's NHL. Even though we have offensive palyers we have large holes everywhere from forwards to defense to goaltending.
