We've had to do rent-a-goalie a bunch of times this year too. Not only is it stupid expensive, but the caliber of the goalie you get is super unreliable.

Last time, our spare was the goalie that subbed for Price in the Habs team skills competition thing (he works in their marketing department). And guess what? He sucked too!

I've stopped short of paying for goaltending but I assume that may come up at some point. I was fortunate last week that the kid who was going to ref our game found out we needed a goalie, wanted to play (the rest of the season, minus a few games), and switched his ref duties. I didn't think he could do it this week but he could.

The goalie who'd played most of our games through January had something pop when he was stretching out for a save. He was already dealing with some groin/muscle issue and that seemed to kill it.

I'm counting down the games until the season is over. I was planning on not running the team this summer but the high likelihood of moving at least gives me an excuse other than "It's the largest source of stress in my life and it's not worth it."

More exciting goalie news: The guy who agreed to fill in for the rest of our games (who is great) just got out of the ER, so he won't be able to play tonight. So I get to ask around last-minute for a goaltender again. I was really hoping to NOT HAVE TO DO THIS AGAIN EVERY WEEK.

I lined up a goalie. We're going to get killed but I found a goalie.
