My only concern with that is ice time... you have two young guys who need it to develop but when they are splitting it between the two it's unfair to both. At some point this season, not saying it has to be soon (although I would prefer it), I believe they have to commit to one or the other.

If Sergachev isn't sent back then I believe the writing is on the wall for Koekkoek as I don't see this coaching staffing willing to sit any of the vets to play him. If it were me, I would sent Sergachev back down, get the 2nd round pick and play Slater. They need to see what they have in their former 1st round pick (if they haven't made up their mind already) before writing him off.

I think it would have been better for us to not have that penalty at the end of the third carry over to the OT, to where it became a 4 on 4 for nearly four of the five minutes of overtime. With more open ice, I think we are a better team being 3 on 3 than 4 on 4 and would have prevailed in overtime. But still kinda OK getting a point on the road in the 2nd of a back to back, and 3rd game in 4 days.

No, I'm not. I'm comparing him to a standard for competent backup goalies that I wish we had. I thought all of the first three goals were soft. Y'all can make excuses for the guy, but just remember who's been sounding the alarm about Boooodaj since he first got here. It's like Nabokov 2.0.

The last one wasn't great either, he had kind of awkward positioning on the inital save which led to a juicy rebound.

Why is it so fucking hard to find a decent backup?? Plenty of other teams regularly have no problem.

At some point you need to question the team playing in front of the backup. Our defense has been worse this year. If we have the same starter as probably 25 teams I'm not sure we have more than 2 wins. Vasi is making this team look a lot better on defense than they are.

We had one of the best backups in the league in the past couple seasons. Then we made him the starter.
