Lassila, and it doesn't take much thought, for me. His goaltending instructor is the same one that worked with Kiprusoff, and I think Lassila could be another Kipper-esque keeper. Finley...as mentioned...reminds me of Mike Dunham, and I don't really think that's a good thing, because we had enough problems with inconsistent goaltending our first five years.
I still have hopes for Finley, but Lassila could very well be the better of the two. Personally, I have only seen Finley play a few times, and never seen Lassila....However from what I have heard, Lassila has really stepped it up, whereas Finley is just now revving up his engines after all the seasons lost to injury .
Dunham = total freaking loser/cry baby/injury proned ... why would anyone want a clone of that? *shudders*
You're partly right that was one side of Dunham ... the other side was the keeper that allowed the Preds to stay in the game for several years. A big guy that made a difference behind a team that didn't have much else to offer
