greatest need in order to make playoffs is a goalie
Reimer is better than scrivens but neither one is consistent enough
to be #1 at this point in their career.
Look at our collapse last year- we blamed it on Wilson - yet we were something
like 10 for GF and 29th for GA
We had to win games 5-4 every time. I didnt like wilson and was glad when he was fired but maybe he knew the only way to win was to score 5 goals a night.
Now we fixed that problem by hiring RC but its same old same old we still need 5 goals a night to win. Now some people on here will blame the D all the time but in each of our last 5 games our tenders have let in at least 2 bad goals a game.
If we are in no rush to make the playoffs then by all means play reims and scrivvy
but if we want to make the playoffs then that is our most pressing need right now.
so is our's man. Played just 1 extra game but they've let in only 1 extra goal compared to us. 89 to 90.
Agreed, but I think the Leafs have a lot more NHL defensemen in their organization than the Lightning. Sustr would be buried in Toronto, but could actually get some games with the Lightning this year as they fall out of playoff contention. The same reason why Toronto was able to sign guys like Bozak, Hanson and Irwin.
