"Currently we have one goalie under contract at the NHL level. I know Antero Nittymaki is approaching unrestricted free agency on July 1st, a priority for us will be to have a 2nd goaltender there. I think everything has to be assessed, but you need two NHL experienced goaltenders to start.

"When you’re facing (Ryan) Miller, (Martin) Brodeur, these type of guys, if you think you’re going to go through a game and get that one shot and score a goal, you might as well not even go on the ice. You've got to go on mentally where you’re going to throw the puck on net, go to the net, wraparounds, quick shots. Don’t take a big slap shot. "These guys thrive on teams that try to pick spots. The best goalie in the world will tell you, the quicker the shot, the more garbage around the net, the harder for them to play; people in front of their faces. When you think you're going to go down the wing all night and and take that one big slap shot and go top shelf on these guys, you’ll be waiting all night with that. You've got to go out there and throw everything at them, whether it’s a wrist shot, slap shot, a quick shot, wrap shot, everything has to go out there with a flurry of people in front of them. That’s the only way you can consistently beat these guys."

Head Coach Rick Tocchet -- remarking Monday on facing elite goaltenders.
