I doubt anyone agrees but I'm confident enough.
Count me in. Hiller is just not good enough game in, game out. I've been VERY impressed with Andersen. I think he's the real deal and I would love to see us move on from Hiller finally. I don't think Bob will be that bold but a goalie needs to be moved and the least deserving one right now is Andersen.

I'm not saying that all what he is doing is bad, but he has made quite a few noticable mistakes that are hemming us in our own zone.

With the rise of Lindholm and Vatanen, (and the eminent return of Souray), we have at least 8 quality NHL defensemen on the roster now. Someone should be expendable at this point, and in my opinion it's Sbisa.
I completely agree. Last night was a good example of everything I hate about Sbisa. He misses the net, all the time. His pinches are worse than Vatanen's. He left Sestito way too open for that goal. He fumbles the puck a lot. His outlet passes aren't accurate. He plays the body well, I'll give him that. But he's easily our least effective d-man right now. I'd much rather have Vatanen in the lineup. At least can get the puck up to the forwards quickly and provide some offense.

Basically down with Swiss!
