#1 Problem: Goaltending !

Ha - yeah I read that yesterday - Tocchet telling it like it is. Earlier in the article he talks about hating the shootout - I notice you left that part out (!) - but whatever - I still find it hard to agree with him. You're going to burn a roster spot for a guy who's specialty is Shootouts? So he can win you (maybe) 4 or 5 extra points a year?

I guess it would all depend on what else this "specialist" could do on the ice, but the way Toch describes it you'd think he was okay with the guy riding the pine for 65 minutes and only going in as a shooter. Is that really practical? Dress someone who sits game after game, and every 2 weeks gets a crack at a shootout?

Hold on, let me guess, all Holmgren has to do is shake the old "goalie tree" and out will come a 1999-2000-esque Martin Brodeur?

Oh, and I heard 29 other teams were blowing up Holmgren's phone begging for the services of one Ilya Bryzgalov.

Always insightful as usual Quigly.....

HF: good sig! I never thought the shoot out was a good idea.

A couple of months ago I posted here supporting Bryz and said he needed more time to acclimate and would come around and be the goalie we paid for...

That doesn't seem to be the case. What goes better with crow: wheat or rye bread?

Bryz is 5-3-3, 2 29, .920 since january 1

If you can't make 2.29, .920 work for you as a hockey team, it ain't necessarily the goaltending...

Easier to blame 2 people than 21.....;)...got to be the goaltender....

...forwards are suppose to score and the defenseman are suppose to ahh...

...are suppose to ah...do something i forget they're role...

While those numbers are certainly good, if you can stop only 2 out of 10 shootout shots, then it aint necessarily the team. Just saying.

That 5-3-3 could be 7-3-1. Certainly more reflective of a 2.29 / .920 goalie.

True - but the shooters scored just once in those shootouts.

Maybe it's not just the gosltending :-)
