I think people are still spoiled by the days of Hasek and Roy and until recently, Broduer.
Goalies today, albeit great, are much more up and down than 10 years ago.
Miller, Lundqvist, Thomas, etc., nearly all the current top goalies have thrown either a complete stinker of a season of at least a rather mediocre one to follow a Vezina-caliber one.
I don't know the extent of Ryan's injury, none of us does.
But regardless of that, the guy needs a capable backup.
And again, bottom line... All these guys are rather unfortunate to follow the days of Dom, Roy and Broduer and look just plain mortal compared to them.
