Re: Two goalie system


One of Esposito's Vezina trophies was shared with Gary Smith. It was almost a two goalie system that season, but Espo did play about 2/3 of the games.

Re: Two goalie system


As a goalie, you always have to be focused. However, in the '70s and early '80s, the play was a lot more hap-hazard. Goalies were always on edge because surprises and breakaways were much more common - so the two goalie system helped take the heat off your number one goalie. Kenny Dryden and Bunny being the prime example (possible Habs bias).

Nowadays, the play is a lot more fluid, skaters are prepared for anything. So I think by chopping and changing goalies - they will lose any momentum they've built up. If your 'star' goalie needs a rest, sure, bring in a solid back-up. Yet, I think it's best to get your number one goalie in as many crucial games as possible and use your back-up when it's absolutely necessary.
