Yes, he will be the PO starter, but I believe Mrazek will be in WHEN Jimmy s***s the bed.
That being said, Jimmy has a ton to prove this playoff. $5M+ to lose ALL the big games is asinine. If/When Jimmy s***s himself again, he should be traded in the off season. NTC or not, he can be convinced to waive it. Re-sign Monster and he will back up Mrazek. Jimmy is the main reason they lost in Anaheim, and he was the reason they nearly lost in Dallas. s***ty goals given up when his team depends on him.
I don't know if I would go as far as all that, but there is some truth in there. Jimmy seems like one of those goalies who has exploitable weaknesses. They don't always show themselves, but when he does s*** the bed, it is usually with bunches of similar goals. Like high rebound control or blocker side in the shootout. It's like he has occasional lapses in his fundamentals but he isn't able to immediately plug the hole.
