Another goalie: Bobrovsky. They play a more defensive system, yes, but they didn't have much great defensive talent. They spent extending amounts of time, sometimes practically whole periods, in their own end because they couldn't get the puck or because they couldn't get it clear. Bob was often tested hard with prime scoring opportunities...the difference is that he actually stood up and bailed out his team to keep them in the game. By comparison, if the puck got stuck in the Flyers zone for an extended period, there was only a small chance Bryz would weather the storm if the opposition started generating good scoring chances.
As Mason showed during his short stint in end of the regular season we need to find a goalie whose good at playing the puck to take pressure off the defense.
