In Topic: Jimmy sucks in a shootout Howard

11 December 2014 - 08:44 AM

I like Howard as a goalie but I have been watching him since he first joined the Griffins years ago when i was a season ticket holder and his biggest fault has always been that he cannot stop a breakaway or a shootout goal. Those hoping he will work on it and get better, sorry but he has had years to work on it already. We have one of the best goaltending coaches there is and that hasn't helped much either.

 

Granted I also think we need to score more goals in the game itself so we don't go to the shootout and if we do then score more than zero or one goals in the shootout. Ultimately I would like the league to get rid of the skills competition for deciding games anyways.

 

Does anyone even know what the rules are about changing to a goalie that did not play in the main game? I am sure that it is allowed if there is an injury or something but not sure if they can otherwise. It sure would be a way for Babcock to send a message to Jimmy that he needs to improve in that fashion.

I had to look up the song to understand the meaning as I had never heard it before. Makes sense now.

 

I also came across this pic http://en.wikipedia....inn_Toronto.JPG on the wiki page for Pat.


In Topic: Nestrasil Waived / Claimed by Hurricanes

I am ok with Nesty going down to play and learn but Weiss will not play in the D and probably not play more than 2 or 3 games in GR. He is a career "I'm hurt, wheres my check" player. He will continue to make a living off watching games from the stands. Pretty sweet gig really.


In Topic: Trade deadline fast approaching - who should we target?

29 January 2014 - 09:35 AM

Are there any "veterans" who are about to retire or who have retired in the last 2 years that we can dump Tatar, Nyquist & Jurco for? That would be the only trade I can see Holland making. He doesn't even try anymore.


In Topic: So what DOES a drunk goalie playing in a Czech REC league look like?
