Devils 7-2.

Hoping for Blackwood to start again and help us kick KK to the curb.

Why the KK hatred?  Schneider's been far more of an issue than him...due to that, KK's been overused, and even on days where KK was supposed to be a backup, he couldn't ever take a true mental day, as Cory had reached the point where you didn't know if he was going to make it through so much as the first period, let alone the whole game.  

If there's a criticism to be leveled at KK, it's that based on the last season and a half, it's hard to know exactly what you're going to get from him...he's been awful for some stretches, terrific in others...and that's both as a backup AND a temporary #1. I think if we've learned anything this season, it's that KK should never be seen as anything more than a decent backup who may be able to fill in ably (short term) should your #1 have issues...but you definitely can't count on that for sure.  

Two big questions:

Can Blackwood play so well that the Devils have no choice but to think of him as next season's #1?  Because that domino would obviously knock over several others.

Assuming the Devils would consider buying Cory out, what other UFA goalies are out there that could come in primarily to back up, but can also step in should Blackwood either regress or get injured?  How expensive would a KK replacement/potential upgrade be?  KK should at least not cost too much, in terms of term or money.  You could probably get him on a two-year deal.  

Anyway, LGMFD!!!
