Who Is The Goalie?

Dale Hunter has been flipping goalies all season long.  At one point Vokoun was the man.  Then he was benched a few times and Neuvy took over.  The Vokoun again.  Then he got hurt.  Then Holtby became the man.  Remember I don't know much about hockey, but I don't see this being a good thing.

Vokoun has had a nagging injury.  Will he be well enough to be in the lineup if the team makes the playoffs?  Neuvirth gave up 4 goals against the Jets, a home "playoff" type game.  Then the next "playoff" game Holtby comes in and gives up 3 and gets benched.  Both these games were at home, and huge, and the goalies couldn't come through.

So who does Dale Hunter go with if they make the playoffs?  The sometimes shaky veteran who may be flat or injured.  The middle guy who has been giving up 4 goals in game after game?  The young guy who plays well a few and then plays terrible in a few?

My vote:  Varlamov
