and a Conn Smythe doesn't make you elite. It means you had a great PO run. Nothing more, nothing less.
If we had guys like Toews and Kane on this roster, I'd be much more inclined to try to get a hot playoff run out of an ordinary goaltender. We dont, and won't anytime soon. So, Im much more inclined to take my chances with a consistently great goaltender on the roster.
