See man.. that's where I think you and I completely differ and disagree. It could certainly be that what you say is true, and that Blackwood isn't good or isn't ready... but my point is: ...with this defense in front of him, (or ANY goalie)... it won't matter if he IS good and IS ready because he'll still get walloped. I wouldn't be surprised if Vasilevsky, Bobrovsky et al would all have sub .900 SV% on this team at this juncture. So how can we tell? How can we reliably evaluate goalie play for our team with such awfulness in front of them?
