While Bob is well deserving of the Vezina, I question that he can continue this over a long season. It looks bad right now, and I'd rather he be here than Bryz, but goaltending is so volatile, we won't feel this way if he comes back next year and puts up a .901 sv%. Although if he puts up anything over ~.915, then it's different.

But I also have trouble scape-goatting Holmgren for that one, because we all know he had marching orders from Big Ed to do what he did, because he wanted someone who could be Tim Thomas, when Tim Thomas wasn't even really Tim Thomas. Wonder if he feels any different about the Bruins seeing that they're back in the finals with a goaltender they were patient with.

And he can say what he wants, we know he picked Bryz. What has happened since the end of 2011 should be getting people fired, but Ed isn't going to fire himself.
