Poll (Redux): Boosh or Bob?

Earlier poll closed before many got to vote.

Who would you start in goal if the playoffs started tomorrow?

IMO in the playoffs experience matters a lot and i trust boosh in the playoffs. people always rag on him but i think he's much calmer than bobs, as in i don't see boosh giving up a 3+ point lead nearly as much a bob would.

Boosh or rotation. Bob scares me sometimes.

Boosh, but on a short leash.

Boosh..but as some have said, don't be afraid to rotate if he goes cold.

I voted rotation but the thought of this broken record goaltending situation induces regurgitation

I'm glad Holmgren made it a NUMBER ONE PRIORITY in the offseason!

He re-signed Michael Leighton as soon as he could. He didn't even wait for free agency.

How much higher on the priorities list can you get?

Gotta be Bob, let the defense do what they need to do and have a goalie like Bobrovksy who is going to make the game changing saves.

I like Bouch and Bob to step in if Bouch falters. Boucher has been there before and is ready for this. Bob is a great backup in case we need it!

I'd start with Bob, and then go to Boucher if Bob falters.

Better to have a vet come off the bench than a rookie

Boucher can definitely do that, However.....most rookies start on the bench when they are splitting time and get to see what it is like before they are in it! Cam Ward did it with Carolina and I think Lavy remembers that. Seems very similar to our current situation?

Yeah I've thought about the Lavi-Ward thing a lot as well in regards to our situation.

I think ultimately it will come down to who is playing better after game 82

Cam Ward sat on the bench because Gerber was very good all year and played the majority of games. The only reason Cam came OFF the bench is because Gerber sh-- the bed.

It wasn't exactly a planned, routine strategy.

Yeah Gerber got a bad flu and lost like 15 pounds going into the playoffs.

I agree - I am good either way and I think the way Lavy rotates, he is good either way as well. I am just hoping the team in front of him gets back to playing a solid system and then whoever gets hot towards the end, gets the job!

They're both better than Leighton, who backstopped us pretty far last year.

They'll go as far as the team can. As long as they aren't relied on to steal games (which I think Bobrovsky has the potential to do, if not the experience) then they can do well. I think that was demonstrated last year.

I'm not saying they can win it all, but they can do well if the team regains its form from last spring....which at this point I'm skeptical will happen.

If the Playoffs started tomorrow? Boucher by a Country Mile

Playoff Experience
Better Puck Handling Skills
Better Communicator
Better Positionally
Better on Breakaways

Neither Goalie this year has shown true game stealing abilities but Bob's tendency to let in a softie 1-2 minutes after taking a lead and his zero playoff experience make this a no brainer in my opinion.

Neither goalie earned anything this week - that's for sure.

Yup nobody is picking up that "mantle" that Hitch and Holmgren used to say with respect to grabbing the bull by the horns and running with it...

Bob has made more of the hard saves than Boosh of late though... with the occassional flubber he should have had. I thought Boosh was wayyyy off his game last night. He was dropping to his knees and commiting too early often. It was actually disconcerting to see at this stage in the season...
