I am fine with the Flower.... but I think as an organization, they need to start working on the replacement.

That being said, he was outplayed thoroughly tonight.

He had a few good games and a few terrible ones as well.
Lundqvist never makes those plays.

I think it depends on the goalie's style. If they depend on athleticism and quickness then I think it hurts them.
