    No way it happens but I would like to see Holtby in there. I recognize he is the relative unknown of the group but what I like in my goalies is play being elevated by emotion. Holtby proved time and time again to jets fans that in big games he is going to step up and give his team an opportunity to win. I don’t see that from price or luongo in recent play.
