In a word.... NO!
I'd take any of the netminders we have had since signing JF, including Marc Gronau, over Vegas... if I had to put them behind this years D.
Admittedly Finnies stats would have been better, but look at certain results, Moscow (H), Nottingham (A) for instance, would we have got them with Finnie in net?
For me, Finnie was either a) spectacular, b) indifferent or c) bloody awful. Last season we got a couple of a's, (Sheffield H, 2-2) too many b's and quite a few c's (owt against Basingstoke.)
Sjerven and Hrivnak have the knack of coming up with the Big Save when it really matters, even if they are not playing all that well. It was a trick that Finnie couldn't pull off, IMHO.
