You also have to factor in that we really haven't had any good goalies that were polished under Lavi.

I'm not against getting rid of Lavi but that reason (if you could even call it one) is far down my list of reasons why to.
To support your point, there is also the finals run we made in 2010 with Boucher and Leighton, the worst tandem in the league most likely. That Laviolette team protected their crappy goalies, dominated puck possession and gave them ridiculously clutch goal support like I've not seen since. Ah **** Leights you spotted them three in the first period of game 7? We got you. This team was a monster under Laviolette when he had (almost) all the horses.
