    Have to remember the inexperience of both goalies right now. Expecting more than what they've provided would have been a little optimistic, I think.

    I'm holding out on a decision on either, we really haven't seen enough to judge what they'll be at this level. But I think a stretch of games where Rittich could've held it to one or two and it ends up being four or five is indicative of a larger problem, and Gillies just flat out seems to always be in the wrong part of the crease.

    I guess in short, there's still time for each to improve, but unfortunately there's not the same amount of time for the team as a whole. I wouldn't trust either guy to get us to the post-season as of what they've shown right now.

    You have to take your lumps. A year ago Connor Hellebuyck had similar issues in the NHL to what you describe Rittich. Now look at him.

    If only Rittich had the pedigree that Hellebuyck does.

    I hadn’t considered that.
