The Goalie as a Performance Evaluation

This column is kind of interesting. According to David J. Neal, a coach’s fate rests in the hands (or pads) of their goalie. In other words, bad goalie=fired coach.
I don’t know, though.
Maybe bad coaches make for bad goalies.
Neal also has a nice piece on Jay Bouwmeester and how Florida’s first-round draft pick is adjusting to his first year in the NHL.
Mostly he’s just working out, but his game is getting pretty good, too.
