Cloutier/Hedberg. We have a goalie controversy now.
I'm assuming your wink guy means that you're kidding b/c I don't think there's a goalie controversy in Van. Having two good goalies going down the final stretch, challenging each other is a great situation for both the goalies and the team.
I'm fairly happy with Kiprusoff/Turek although I'd definitely rate Detroit's, Tampa's and San Jose's ahead of them. I'm not sure Garon is experienced enough to be able to put the Canadiens in the top 3. I like Cloutier but I don't think he's in a top 3 tandem either.
Best goalie tandem in the league for the playoffs:
Martin Brodeur and whoever the hell his backup is. Brodeur is bar none the best playoff goalie in the NHL.
But if you want them ranked based on both the starting goalie as well as the back-up, this is how I'd rank them:
1.) Evgenyi Nabokov and Vesa Toskala
2.) Curtis Joseph and Manny Legace
3.) Marty Turco and Ron Tugnutt
4.) Dan Cloutier and Johan Heberg
5.) David Aebischer and Phil Sauve
6.) Mikka Kipprusoff and Roman Turek
7.) Tomas Vokoun and Chris Mason
8.) Roman Cechmanek and Cristobal Huet
1.) Nikolai Khabibulin and John Grahame
2.) Jose Theodore and Mathieu Garon
3.) Martin Brodeur and Corey Schwab?
4.) Ed Belfour and Trevor Kidd/Mikael Tellqvist
5.) Andrew Raycroft and Felix Potvin
6.) Sean Burke and Robert Esche
7.) Patrick Lalime and Martin Prusek
8.) Rick DiPietro and Garth Snow
