While there’s only nine teams currently in the league, not all of the NLL goalie issues have been ironed out. What happens when we expand to 11, and beyond? Do we have a talent pool that can sustain longterm elite goaltending, as the game’s best continue aging.
Each week of these early NLL games gives us more insight as to what’s really going on in this hyper competitive league. You can make an argument for any team in the preseason (I certainly did!) but as the results pour in the facts start to settle away from the conjecture, and all we can do is enjoy it.
We got to see two NLL games in Week 2. Both of them were fun to watch, and told us a lot more about four of the nine teams vying for a title in 2018.
A handful of NLL goalies hit some serious milestones already this season, let’s give credit where credit is due.
