Check that out, bgrif. It's telling that one third of the names on that list of goalies from 1924 to present played for the Bruins between 1990 and 2009. 34 of the 99 goalies in Bruins history played in the 19 years between the final years of the Moog/Lemelin era and the beginning of the Thomas/Rask. That's 34% of the goalies in only 22% of the time the Bruins have been around. The Bruins have averaged 1.14 goalies per year in their total history but had 1.79 goalies per year for those 19 years - that's a 63% increase in goaltender turnover - not a good sign, and that's not even comparing it to a period of prolonged stability like the last three seasons where they've had only 0.66 goaltenders/year (same two guys over the last three seasons). Aw, heck...just because it amuses me - Bruins goaltenders between 1990-91 and 2009-10 (guys who shouldn't induce a cringe in italics - though Potvin may be pushing it - and low-lights in bold): Alex Auld, Scott Bailey, Mike Bales, Daniel Berthiaume, Craig Billington, John Blue, Jim Carey , Jon Casey , Tim Chevaldae, Byron Dafoe , Matt DelGuidice, Manny Fernandez, Brian Finley, John Grahame, Jeff Hackett, Blaine Lacher , Rejean Lemelin , Joey MacDonald, Andy Moog , Felix Potvin , Bill Ranford , Andrew Raycroft, Tuukka Rask , Vincent Riendeau, Philip Sauve, Paxton Schaefer, Steve Shields , Jordan Sigalet, Petr Skudra , Rob Tallas, Tim Thomas , Hannu Toivonen , Kay Whitmore.
