In Topic: Holmstrom: Should he have come back to play?

Believe it or not, one of the guys on another BB I'm onactually claimed that Homer was at fault because he was "admiring his pass" and should have saw the hit coming and avoided it.

In Topic: Capitals' Semin kicked off Team Russia

The Hockey News.com has learned Washington Capitals star Alexander Semin has been kicked off the Russian national team, prompting Semin's agent to refer to the fiasco as, "the most bizarre situation I've ever experienced in hockey, ever."

Mark Gandler, who represents Semin, said the Russian team's decision to remove Semin from the team because he arrived hours after the team's first practice was unreasonable and far too harsh.

"I don't understand it…there is no explanation for it," Gandler said. "Alexander did nothing wrong, but even if he had, the punishment doesn't fit the crime."

Seems like the release of Semin is hard for his agent to swallow...

Despite what some may think of Iggy, they'd love to have him on their team.

He's an awesome player. But he's got to get his team together for game 3. The Flames are a dangerous team, but they need to play smarter and help Kipper out a bit more.

And also, the Wings have been doing a great job of putting that old "The Wings aren't tough" talk to bed. They've certainly been very physical in this series so far. Babcock needs to keep them moptivated and keep doing that.

The Wings, so far, have been playing much smarter than the Flames. If Calagry ( wink.gif Couldn't resist) get's their heads screwed on straight it could turn out to be a much different series. They have the talent.

Can you name a goalie that always stops top shelf/high glove? I don't think so. That is by far the most difficult shot to save. It may look easy as you watch it, but it's almost impossible unless you get lucky a few times here and there or if the shot isn't a very good one.

Being a goalie (and not anywhere near an NHL calibre one, just a beer league schlub) I can say that almost every shooter expects a goalie to do down in a butterfly because almost all of them do.

Hence, the high glove side shot most of the time.

Osgood does it on almost every single shoot-out shot.

He's too predictable in that scenario.

If he were to, once in a while, stay on his feet when he challenges a shooter, he'd get scored on less glove side high.

Two words.

High glove side.

Ok, that's three.

Watch his shootouts. Almost every goal that is scored on him is the same thing. High glove side. Scorers know how to beat him.

He does the same thing. Drops to his knees on every shot in a shoot-out. They go high glove side, they beat him.

It's a fact. Watch the games.

In a regular game when he gets support, he plays very well. When it's one on one, he's beatable.

Need proof?


Almost every shootout goal he's given up has been carbon copy of this.

But yes, I like Ozzie. He just has to stay on his feet on occassion. Butterfly isn't always the answer.
