    Well, I'd go with Cam and Gus in first 3 every time.

    Elvis was good in the SO - Drouin’s move was sick - and he had no chance on the tying goal. Good game Elvis. You did your job.

    Not premature. I said in my book, if I could choose a number 1 to ride for the foreseeable future it would be Elvis. I have seen enough of Korpi.

    I don’t think either guy has played well enough (or consistent enough) to be the #1 guy. That first goal was as bad or worse than anything korpisalo has given up, and I’m not a korpi guy.

    I think Elvis earned the next start, but that’s as far as I’ll go. He was pretty good tonight by and large in a tough environment.

    Second straight year Korpi can't take over the #1 spot for good.

    That is your opinion, you are entitled to it. I think his play tonight spoke volumes.

    Exactly. Winner winner, chicken dinner. When you have the opportunity to take over the #1 and don’t..... then you aren’t a number 1 then are you?

    If he can play consistently I will be with you. I just can’t get there yet, especially after so little experience

    I want to see if Elvis can show he’s a #1 goalie. I have no idea whether he is or not. But I’m sure Korpi is not.

    Goalie has been probably the least of our problems this season . If we played defensively game in and game out like we did tonight , and had a coach that utilized his skill players , our record would be much better . Elvis was strong tonight , defense was actually sound , your not going to win many games with Wennberg, Jenner, Nash down the middle trying to drive offense.

    Oh, and you know those two players that looked like 2 of our best forwards tonight, and scored a beautiful goal , Bemstrom played 10 minutes, and Robinson 8 , Milano with 11 . One game closer to the citgo John

    The only way you get experience is by playing. He has the talent, find out what you have. I think you know what you have with Korpi. If Elvis is to have more upside, then why not play him more, thereby becoming the number 1 goalie? Give Elvis some more starts, see if he can get in a zone and on a roll. What other alternative is there? Korpi? A trade for another goalie?

    To be fair, at what point had Elvis been given an opportunity to be consistent? Korpisalo has had his chance. No harm in trying to ride Elvis for a couple of weeks to see what happens. Status quo ain’t working.

    For me goalie is a huge question mark and sub-900 save percentage is a problem. But I agree with your points on offense. Playing the 4th line under 9 minutes even strength when they were playing strongly and aggressively and not using Sonny in the SO was classic Torts handling of young players. “Die with the old dogs” is his motto.

    Nothing crazy about that, it's reasonable move, he's awful.

    Adapting during the game?! Torts?! He's not capable. He can't even do it between the games in PO.

    Safe is death Unless your John Tortorella who coaches like a coward . As soon as he marched that lineup out there on the overtime powerplay , I knew the game was lost . Playing Wennberg in overtime just to play defense is another example why this team is going no where under Torts . Someone mentioned a game earlier it’s not the coaches job to develop players at this level, tonight is a perfect example as to why they are wrong. Bemstrom has been our best forward the last 3 games, should have been out there on the powerplay in overtime , with all that space , he gets 10 minutes of ice time , yet was responsible for 50% of the offense tonight . He has confidence , he has a lethal shot , give him a shot to take the next step. Examples like this are why Torts doesn’t develop skilled players .

    The D played better tonight than they have in a while, it made Elvis' job much easier. It wasn't the half dozen 2 on 1s Korpi usually gets.

    Edit: Just a comment on tonight's D, I'm not fighting about our goalies.

    I think that was 2017-18. And yeah Torts rationale for scratching him at the time ~ "Cam forgot what kind of player he is" is the same rationale I'd use this time.

    Are you sure you saw the first goal?

    He earned another start, that's it. Nobody earns a number 1 job with one game.

    Watching him have 0 adjustments in the Caps series, up 2-0 on road , Trotz adjusts after that game extends his D out so we could no longer set up offense at point, and then a year later Boston makes the same adjustment , and Torts blows another series , No ... I’m not a huge fan

    Yes Mr know it all I saw the first goal
    It was soft, perhaps deflected
    Maybe a knuckle puck
    I don’t know
    Seeing as many of us have never played hockey I am certain that as the expert here
    You have the definitive answer
