Who, oh who, should Yzerman take? Tell us, dear readers.
The Capitals and Ovechkin are peaking at the right time as they look to solidify their grip on the Southeast. Will the Jets find the consistency to challenge?
While the top teams in the Atlantic and Northeast build impressive leads, the Southeast Division title remains a dogfight. The Jets and Canes are battling for every point, while the Capitals continue their push to sneak in to the playoff mix.
Steve Yzerman talks about what he wants and what he can get to upgrade the Lightning in goal. What are the implications of these public statements?
I think everybody's trying to find somebody that's an elite guy. A lot of it is that there's probably five or six elite goaltenders in the league, and then there's a group of good goaltenders, and then there's a group of teams that are really searching for that guy to lock up and not worry about it for the present and the future.
I guess my philosophy is I'm trying to find that Hall of Fame goaltender, and good luck trying to do that; it takes time. We'll find that through the draft or unrestricted free agency. That guy isn't there at this time.
Steve Yzerman and the Lightning staff have a tough decision to make regarding the goaltender situation in Tampa Bay. This decision starts with their assessment of the talent currently in the system and gets complicated quickly.
Ward out, but you'd never know it; Mr. Panther Stephen Weiss; Caps are done; Jets control their fate. The week that was in the Southeast.
