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.
As much as i agree. The whole team is playing terrible and with Eakins icing RNH's line against top lines night in and night out no goalie will stand a chance. I was looking at Lowlights of the Caps game and i've never seen a group of forwards so physically dominated in front of the net. It was so so bad.


I have seen first hand how goalies can go from almost out of the league to Vezina winner. BOB was wretched in front of that run in gun philly system, a system that no defeneman or goalie would thrive in, but once he was traded he almost led a Rick NashLEss Blue jackets team to the playoffs over detroit. That is how good he was
