hypothetical situation...

Lets say hypothetically Henrik got hurt for the rest of the season and Valiquette took over as the starter. Lets say Valiquette took us into the second round of the playoffs and maybe beyond. Would you support him as the starter next year?

If he took us to the cup, I would say definitely. If he made it to the playoff off, Id be extremely happy with him, but thats a tough call.

lol if that happened vally would be a legend in my book but in all seriousness let's just pray hank doesn't get hurt...

hopefully if we make it to the playoffs everyone will feel the pressure and play as hard in front of hank as well as they have been in front of vally so we can all stop throwing our franchise player under the bus for a team not helping him at all ever

How the hell did you manage to spell Valiquette correctly.

no, i wouldnt support him for the starting job.

Ive been as big a Vally supporter as there is out there. ive been clamoring for years for him to get a backup spot on this team. but there is a reason i want him as a backup, and not a starter. he isnt good enough, end of story. he doesnt make the spectacular save. he doesnt bail his team out. Vally does what hes supposed to do, win games when his team plays superb in front of him. but he wont steal games for you, and Henrik most definitely steals games.

Its not even a discussion. Vally could win us the Stanley Cup, and I would still give Henrik a huge contract and the starting job next year. Henrik is not a bum, or a flash in the pan, if youve even been remotely paying attention the past 2 and a half years, you should know hes a spectacular goalie. Lateral movement easily among the top 2 in the NHL, down low about as good as humanly possible. His only flaw is his play with the puck on his stick.

Hes an elite goalie who just isnt getting the help he should be, and is being compared to a level of play that he showed earlier in the year that was practically inhuman.

I agree. I have a lot of respect for Vally and he is a good back up to have. Hank is the one that can completely steal games for us. I just wish our guys played hard and smart defense when hank is in net, like they do with Vally. If they did, we would have plenty of more wins.
