We need a goalie..

Holtby is either not ready or not good enough. Neuvirth is average. Trade for a vet goalie and build the team from the net out. Once we have a good goalie who is reliable, we can think about other changes... BUT GOD DAMN IT, FIX THE GOALIE ISSUE NOW!!!

Why? How many teams are successfully based around a franchise goalie nowadays? Build from the defense out if anything, not the net out

Whoa... that's actually not all that crazy. I mean, it is in the sense that they should just embrace the tank at this point, but for some reason he didn't even cross my mind this year.

We haven't had consistency at G since Kolzig.

Tank is a waste, just make some trades for a goalie and a winger... Team should not be in need of high draft picks to change this around.

If there's one thing GMGM should be most accountable it's giving the goalie duties over to the rotation that's been here the last 5 years. Too much inexperience, no good vet for those guys to ever learn from. That's where the development problem has been. Trial by fire hasn't worked GMGM. Imagine if we had a world class goalie to go with the President's Cup contending years...

We need help at O, D, and G.

The current situation reminds me of the advice we techs would give other techs, when working on certain models of televisions:

Me: "Take the knob off... and replace everything underneath it."

Goalie should be number 1.... can't you see how all these bad goals are killing the confidence of our team...

Somebody explain why Holtby will turn out to be an above average goalie.. Might not happen.. Don't waste any more years of our core Mcphail.

Still can't recall anyone thinking Neuvirth and Holtby were better than Varly.

McPhee should trade for a vet... Trade noyvy away and keep Holtby until the point when or if he matures into a stud..

I do.. Many people were making these prognostications that Holtby was the future kolzig and Carly would be injury prone.

Our defence is the problem. Braden is a stud prospect so is neuvirth.

Anyway, although McPhee won't trade for Lou, although I disagree, we need another cheaper vet to bide our time. If Holtby proves to be an average or worse goalie, we can make further plans for a stud vet.

We need a miracle not a goalie.

Almost 25% into the season - go full tank mode and get a top 5 pick.

We just need an average NHL level goalie, no need to sell a farm for Luongo. But we do need him fast - like tomorrow. The team clearly doesn't believe in Nervy-Holtby anymore. Mental aspects are very important in hockey, and playing with an empty net really messes with you.

tanking might leave us waiting years for the pick to mature while ovie gets slower and older, not to mention backie
