One thing I must say about Holtby, is I think he's much better than Brodeur when it comes to making good decisions with the puck.
Brodeur seemed to have major brain farts in that regard at least once a game during the playoffs against hard forechecks.
I find it weird for Backstrom's injury they are talking about checking it out in Montreal tomorrow... I'm pretty sure every NHL arena has the ability to do x-rays on site and then on top of that why are they flying out tonight?

Holtby's puck-handling decisions have improved, but that area of his game, for now, remains a liability. I'm sure there doesn't exist any data that quantifies the positive effects of goalies helping breakouts and so on, but I very much doubt that those positive effects outweigh the few totally unwarranted goals those goalies give up when they don't make responsible decisions.
