A goalie who handles the puck "well," still handles the puck horribly. It's a sliding scale. Personally, I have no envy about that. Smith isn't going to be responsible for many goals for this year, but he will be responsible for many horrible giveaways, and if I were a Yotes fan, three or four times a game where my sphincter closes. So, no thanks. Granted, goalies like this are good for disrupting forechecks, but the best teams aren't usually dump and chase, and if they are, they're smart enough to dump into corners. My biggest problem with goalies that handle the puck "well," is that because they're confident, they overhandle the puck. I want my goalie touching the puck as little as possible.
