It absolutely does, but, regardless of the system, a good goalie will still make the basic saves and will still be able to steal a game or two for you.

I'm not expecting a good goalie to come in and win all of our games for us but the difference between a #1 goalie and what we have now is about 6-8 points up from where we sit.
