There are some really interesting things in here.

  • None of the top 10 goalies here have played for a pennant.
  • Three of the top 10 goalies were backups this year.
  • Three of the top 10 goalies played for Minnesota in this time frame.
  • Unless Manny Legace just fell off of a cliff this year, he deserves a shot at some work next year. His track record is too good not to have a job.
  • When Spector starts talking out of his ass about Horcoff's contract being the worst in the NHL the next time, someone needs to have him take a long, hard look at the deals that were given to Jose Theodore, Marty Turco and Evgeni Nabokov.
  • Jason LaBarbera never should have hit waivers this year. He deserves a regular job as well.
  • Miikka Kiprusoff is...on...the...long...slow...trip...to...outrageously...overpaid...backup. .923, .917, .906, .903...
