You clearly don't watch the Dallas Stars. Anderson could not do what Lehtonen is doing for this team.

Don't get me wrong. Anderson is a great goalie right now, and a very respectable 2nd place. But the Stars give up so so so many grade A scoring chances. It's not a coincidence we give up 7 goals the night he gets pulled. Bachman isn't a bad goalie, it's just that goalies can't make the saves Lehtonen is forced to make every night.

Lehtonen is an amazing goalie. The defense in front of him is one of the worst of the league and yet he keeps them in games consistently. I'm not sure there is another goalie in the league that can do what he is doing right now behind that Stars D.

Hopefully the Nucks can vent him tomorrow night to put some more space behind Lu. Though Schnieds will probably be playin for us.

I can see you guys tearing him up. You're so offensively talented compared to our defense especially.

Other than Anderson playing great, you have no idea what you are talking about.

Well Keri fans, it's on now! Anderson is now behind a defense that is arguably worse than Dallas' now with Karlsson out. Let's see how the next 30 games play out.

Meh, its kinda offense by committee. No one stand out player, just a bunch of above average producers.

Similar talent on defense, but I still think your guys play a lot better and are more disciplined. We play solid defense for a little bit, then just fall apart and let plays happen randomly. We also spend an absurd amount on the PK. If Anderson keeps up his numbers though, I'll take back my statements. I sincerely think Lehtonen is just the best goalie in the world as of today.

Lehtonen has always been amazing, but he just happened to get injured a lot when he was on his McDonald's health regimen during the early years of his NHL career.
