We do not have an NHL caliber goalie

Mike Smith is not a #1 goaltender, no matter how much Jay Feaster thought he was (Brad Richards for Smith?? WTF). Dan Ellis is a possible solid backup, but cannot be relied on to play 40+ games.

 

So Boucher's system is attack, attack, but they have no one in net that can stop the puck when it comes back the other way. No one in Norfolk is standing out in goal either, so we are stuck with these two turds for the rest of the season. Vinny's contract is really handcuffing Yzerman's ability to make a deal and stay under the cap. :JawDrop:

Still a chance that Ellis and Smith get moved as well, with Desjardins brought back up as the ....backup. Rolo led the Oilers to the Finals not that many years ago, so ths is a definite upgrade. Wishart may still develop into an NHL defenseman, but doesn't project as a #1, especially considering he was a 1st round pick. More fallout from the Dan Boyle salary dump trade :(
