For better or for worse, the value of a good goalie cannot be underestimated. Craig Custance and Pierre LeBrun look at which teams are flourishing and foundering because of their netminders.
Custance: ... So if you had to pick one—who makes the playoffs this year, Florida or Toronto?
LeBrun: Well, I picked neither to make it in September, so why bother changing my mind now...
