Honestly, I don't the Flyers need goaltending. Bobrovsky has been very consistent and they've put faith in him and I think they're going to stick with him. You don't need amazing goaltending to win the cup and Holmgren and the Flyers know that, otherwise they would have already traded for a tender.

Same with the Bolts. They've found their goalie in Roloson and yes, you CAN win with someone like Dwayne Roloson. But they need a defenseman or two.

As for Boston, I don't think Recchi is a problem for anyone lol. I heard they're looking for a d-man, not a forward. They have very balanced scoring, like they always do, with 8 players in multi-digit goals, and at least 3 more that will finish with at least 10 goals in all likelihood.

I could see the Flyers trying to fill the hole in net, but I will say I think Giguere will end up in Washington or Detroit when the smoke clears.

I have to disagree with the statement that Washington is built to win the cup. Yes they are very high on offense but have a lot of work to do on team defence. They have no "rock" on D and they dont have a number one goalie. A lot of their forwards "float" instead of back check their asses off. They are a team built for the presidents trophy not a cup run. I think the reason they are struggling so much is that they are trying to play a team defence and haven't made it around the learning curve. I dont think firing Boudreau would solve much except put them back to square one. If they have an epic fail again this year then I can see Bruce going to you have to stick with him for the season.

I completely agree to that you can win with D Roloson. If I had to pick a goalie to go into the playoffs with he would not be even close to the top of the list but you could be in a waaay worse position. He was huge in the Oiler run in 06 and he has shown that he can win some big games.

Speaking of goalies....where will Vokoun get traded to?

Since Edmonton, Roloson has found his way onto some very weak teams. Now he gets another chance with a stronger club and he's already posted a few shutouts with them. Roloson is a fantastic veteran leader to have in net for a playoff run. He is one of the few goaltenders in the league you call "clutch." Cam Ward is another.

Well put.....If you want to go with "what have you done for me lately" then I guess Niemi is your top choice as every goalie but one "fails"
