nice goal. almost makes up for the double-bend on the PP.
btw, you don't have to send me a private message every time filppula does something, champ. i don't send you a PM every time he misses an open net...then again i don't think LGW would allow for that many messages.
Oh okay, so as long as you admit when he makes has nice goal, you can bag on him relentlessly and most importantly when undeserved?
And I only messaged ONCE today you because all you do is bag on him relentlessly and most importantly when undeserved.
Filppula has 780:34 TOI this year, Carcillo has 760:20. But Filppula also has 50 minutes of Shorthanded TOI.
But frankly your argument is stupid. Who cares about Carcillo? Plus everyone knows Filppula is never going to be a great goal scorer. I'd be surprised if he ever tops 25 goals.
At the end, when was the last time you could say that Carcillo carried his team offensively? Ummm...never, most likely. Definitely not this year at least. His only 2 points games came on a 5-2 win over Buffalo and a 7-2 trouncing of Tampa Bay.
When was the last time you could say that about Flip? Uhh..Saturday?
Filp has decent hands anyways. Putting him in the shootout was a pretty logical choice. If anyone didnt like it they can be mad at Babs, not Filp.
Or just don't be mad at anyone? Flip has shown great hands. NO one scores 100% of the time.
definitely. cause no one has been upset with Z's pathetic shootout attempts all season long. no one has called him out on this board multiple times. everyone gets a free pass except for filppula.
again, you're delusional.
If it was Franzen, Miller, Cleary, Lilja, Bertuzzi, Lidstrom, Rafalski, Hudler or Holmstrom went and missed, no one would say anything, YOU certainly wouldn't. Zetterberg is an exception, not the rule. Even then I don't think anyone would say "Zetterberg you suck ass". Maybe they would, I don't know. It's unfounded regardless.
I'm just telling you why Babcock picked Filppula. After Datsyuk, Williams and MAYBE Bertuzzi (though when was the last time he scored a goal), Filppula is the best option. Is he 1 for 5 in shootouts? Fine, but it's hardly the entire picture. Miller is 100% in shootouts. Maybe he should go first every time?
