no one expects williams to do anything, and he still gets bitched at. plus, his shot is the one part of his game that isn't total garbage, so he won't whiff on wide open nets all season long like filppula does.
you're obviously not bright enough to realize that the 2 players have different expectations.
Wait so Filppula is a good player with a s***ty shot so his goal scoring has higher expectation than the s***ty player with a good shot?
You're contradicting yourself. You say Filppula sucks but he has high expectations? If he sucked wouldn't he have low expectations?
Obviously the underlying premise here is that s*** happens and player miss nets, it has nothing to do with their caliper or skill. Anyone remember Hossa miss the net in the winter classic last year? Is he a s***ty goal scorer? I'm not saying Williams or Lidstrom SHOULD be bitched at, but that Filppula shouldn't be. No one should, really. Is it disappointing? Yeah. But that's about it.
