'I think the goaltender position is always the most challenging because it is the key to every teams success. This challenge isn’t just with the Sabres, but each NHL team. If you look at the Stanley Cup Finals, both Khabibulin and Kiprusoff played integral roles in their teams success. You always have to keep in mind that your best forward plays 20 minutes a game while your best defenseman plays 25 to 30 minutes a night, but the goaltender plays 60 minutes. It is also far and away the most difficult position to play.'
