Id rather have a guy like that than one who is steadily crappy.
i actually think its the other way around.
do you remember that game against philly last year, where weekes made this incredible save on i think forsberg or gagne. when he shot at point blank and he gloved it down, only to lose the game in overtime after 5 seconds or so.
or do you remember the california dreaming? against anaheim and san jose early in the season?
especially against san jose weekes was spectacular. I dont think valliquette wouldve won those 2 games.
so i disagree, weekes is, in my opinion much, much better than valliquette, who, if you are honest hasnt really been tested cept for one game.
