REV-G Posted August 25, 2022 Share Posted August 25, 2022 It's interesting how what once was a strength could become or has become a weakness and how what was once our weakness now seems to be a strength. Marc Bergevin said it's very hard to find centers. Nobody's giving them up he said. They're hard to find. Kent Hughes found some. Now we have a plethora of centres and it seems like it will not be a weakness for us for many years. We seemed to be getting older a few years ago and now we are a very young team slowly moving out or losing veteran players we once depended on. Goaltending has been our strength for quite a few years. Now when we look down the pipe we see a void, a lack, a weakness perhaps. So my question is what do we do with our goaltending. I don't think this coming year is a problem since it will be a development year and if we lose and have a chance at the first or second pick, better yet while our young guys develop. But there are some teams around the league, Toronto being one, who never seemed to solve their goaltending problem and personally I think it's going to be a major problem for them this year. Great forwards but goaltending could be their archilles heel. We have to find our goalie of the future. Is Primeau the guy? Is one of our drafted prospects the guy. Or are we still in the hunt? How do you think we turn this weakness into a strength? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
