Wake With Elias: Demko enters Vezina conversation, DiPietro stuck on the sidelines

The Vancouver Canucks goaltending situation can be categorized into three commonly-used categories.

  • Good: Thatcher Demko has been one of the best goalies in hockey over his last 12 starts. He has a 7-4-1 record and a .939 save percentage since February 13th. The only goaltender with a better save percentage over that same span is Minnesota Wild rookie netminder Kaapo Kahkonen (9-1-0, .940 SV%)

  • Bad: Braden Holtby has been a massive disappointment this season in Vancouver.
