If this year wasn't a strong enough reminder, we got another reminder from Price and Miller last night that goaltending is THE MOST IMPORTANT position on any hockey team. Let's hope that Anderson is the real deal, and that we take more steps to shore up the goaltending prospects during the off season.
I played hockey for a long time and coached hockey for 11 years, and it was always so clear to me how important having a great goalie was, and how much confidence great goaltending brings to any team. Why did it take so long for us to do something about the series of sieves that we have had in this town? Yeah I know... we tried... Trying sucks!!!
We have spent so much time and energy on this site speculating about what forwards we should pick in this draft, and it's worth mentioning that if Anderson gets hurt next year, do we have anyone who can step in? Will we have a backup who can carry a team that probably won't score alot of goals?
