One has to wonder if Kenny would have done this in the first round with Mrazek what would have happened...

Oh well, being so damned conservative doesn't always work.

We would have lost in 5 games. It wasn't a goaltending issue, it was a goal scoring issue

Wait, which situation are you referring to, Gibson over Hiller or Jones over Quick? If the former, the Ducks are an elite team and Gibson is the #1 goalie prospect in the world, so I dunno if we can really relate. (For what it's worth, the Kings had Gibson beat at least twice, but his teammates bailed him out. Specifically, Kopitar's wraparound which Fowler had to stop and that one where Gibson was dead on the ground and Getzlaf - who's become one of my favorite players - stood tall in net.)

 

As for Quick-Jones, my armchair theory is Sutter learned from the Sharks series that if the opposition is causing problems for Quick in his kitchen and he's showing signs that it's throwing off his game, you remove him from the equation right away and then say whatever you have to say in your pressers to convince people that it's not about Quick at all, it's 100% about galvanizing his teammates, who are supposed to be going to war for him in the defensive zone but were, obviously, not getting it done. So, pretty much what Roenick said, except I do think Sutter was protecting Quick and that that was actually the primary motivation. I'm not sure any real parallels can be drawn between all that and our Boston series. I suppose there could've been more to the whole flu thing than we were led to believe.

Gibson > Mrasek it's not even a discussion Gibson just absolutely stole the show in the world juniors and then went on to improve his game. He may not be ready yet but once he is this kid will be the next BIG starpotential goaltender.

Lose in five, unless Mrazek turned into a sniper.

It's one game in the NHL.  Not discrediting Gibson because I like him but it's again one game.

I'm not saying he will be the starter or great at the moment, guy for sure needs more time in the AHL. Boudreaus is playing a difficult game here, if Gibson gets blown out today does he go back to Hiller or Anderson ?

I'm really excited to see John Gibson doing so well.  He grew up in my neighborhood and his family goes to my church.  I saw a woman decked out in all Anaheim Ducks gear and was like "Who the... ohhh right.  That's his Mom." lol  She flew out to LA yesterday to be at the game tonight.  Hopefully she's not a jinx. lol

Game 7!
Think for yourself. Question authority. Throughout human history as our species has faced the frightening, terrorizing fact that we do not know who we are or where we are going in this ocean of chance, it has been the authorities, the political, the religious, the educational authorities who attempted to comfort us by giving us order, rules, regulations, informing, forming in our minds their view of reality. To think for yourself you must question authority and learn how to put yourself in a state of vulnerable, open mindedness, chaotic, confused vulnerability to inform yourself.
