Then lets make a deal! i am mainly a Montreal fan.
My one condition, in any deal, i dont want any goalie coming back,
we open a new thread for it?
I'll save you the trouble. Hab fans would be demanding Kessel and Gardiner, which is insanity but Price to Toronto? Yeah, that's not something any Hab fan wants so they're not being reasonable about it. /also supports the Habs.
Man that was fun. I love disproving you guys. You made it too easy though. Thanks for playing.
So you use the excuse that guys are younger and makes them better, but then don't mention what guys are older? By the way you mentioned Fleury had a Stanley Cup, did you check his stats during that playoff run? .908 and 2.61. Does that sound like he was the reason they won? Goaltending is one of the most inconsistent positions, so comparing last year stats as your only statistical comparison is very shortsighted. If use career stats or the fact of how much experience Luongo has over a much bigger sample size would be a much better analysis. I know you did not put much time in that post, so I guess we should not judge your hockey analysis skills based on that, but if we did what does it look like to you?
Maybe we could add the mention that i would also rather run with a cheap 1 800 000$ Quick. Or a 2 000 000$ Smith than a Bryzgalov or Huet.
just for fun, did you took a look how 7 000 000$ Rinne is doing in the KHL ?
His save % (.900 over 20gp) is not even in the top 30, he lag behind name like Mikael Tellqvist. Erik Ersberg, Karri Ramo, Brobovski, Khudobin, Jeff Glass, Ari Ahonen, Michael Garnett
Varlamov is leading the league with an astonishing 0.951 (but 12gp..so not really significant)
of course its only a small sample of 20gp, but still....
I'm confused why put Quick in that list. Yes he is at 1.8.. for 1 more season until his cap hit (5.8) surpasses Luongos. You can shoot for sub 2M goaltending but the chances of that guy being a Conn-Smythe winning, elite calibre goalie are slim.
