It's Crawford's job. Emery is playing well but he's not going to keep up this torrid pace.

I was waiting for this reaction. You folks are naive if you think for even a moment that the tandem we have, have proven anything when it counts.... and we are still one injury away from being screwed back there. We were lucky that CC was not badly concussed (at least that's how it seems).... that luck may not continue. And opps are well aware - don't be surprised if teams run our goalies on a regular basis.

And you're naive if you think Bernier is any better.

I agree that we could do better but if the team plays like this, you could put anyone in there. That may change come playoff time, hopefully not.

You complain that Crawford isn't athletic enough, then complain that Emery won't be given a chance in the playoffs (despite being less athletic) and all the while want a smaller version of Crawford in Bernier? Alright..

It's kind of funny when people talk about the playoffs and our goaltending and then say, "We should get Bernier! Or Markstrom! Or Lehner!". Yeah, because that's what Chicago needs to win a Cup, an unproven goaltender with no playoff experience!

Right, that never works. Disagree with him, fine, but at least think about what you say first.

Crawford/Emery haven't proven anything when it counts, so you want to get Bernier, who hasn't proven anything in the NHL at all?

Crawford just had an injury and we were so screwed we went 4-0.

Antti Niemi was 26 and played behind one of the best team's in Chicago Blackhawks history.

Cam Ward got hot at the right time.

How many other rookie and/or unproven goalies with no playoff experience go on to help teams win Cups? It's extremely rare.

It's not a matter of disagreeing, it's simply dumb to put your hopes for a Cup on an unproven goaltender.

goaltending is fine, we have a guy as #3 that could be our #2. If we would want, we could trade for a goalie. I'm sure ANA would give us Hiller for the right and still fair price with the way Fasth is playing. Still think VAN would like to have their "problems" solved rather sooner than later

He's looked pretty good to me .... If nothing else it's an insurance policy to get a young goalie in here that can play now and in the future. I doubt that's Karllson.

and Bernier would play in the AHL, right?


Crawford just was 1st star with a SO and Karlsson just comes off a 2-1 win against the Wolves being the #1 star of the game stopping 23 of 24 shots. Why waste assets again?

2nd shutout in his last 3 starts if I remember correctly. Goaltending is no longer an issue for us. Only question mark at this point is will it last in the playoffs?

Then it is somewhat of a question mark.

We have a goalie that can play now and in the future, his name is Crawford, Corey.

Based on watching at least parts of every game this season I would say his assumption is closer to coming to fruition than yours.

Please shed some light as to why Emery is better than Crawford, from your perspective as a goalie?

As big of a backer as I am for Emery, he isn't better than Crawford.
