I think LGW experience time travel during the two day lockout because most of our avatars reverted back to the ones we used two years ago.

 

Did the league agree to our terms?




#2653003 XO Recalled

Posted by e_prime on 14 February 2016 - 10:49 PM

 

I've always been impressed with XO's passing ability. He had one really nice play where he faked a shot only to pass the puck over to Helm for a goal.

On the bad side, he had a bad clear which I think led to the Trotman goal, but that happens.

 

Overall I was happy with him. I like him and Marchenko as a third pairing.

A bad clear that lead to a goal?  Don't let the Kindl, Ericsson, Smith haters know!  :D

I got this feeling it's going to take 7 to win.. Jesus that's gross to say sometimes.

I'd like a hatty from somebody please...  Would be my first free curly fry since returning to the D.

The difference is that Rask has been Boston's #1 all year long, for a few years now. Not so for Mrazek in Detroit. 

 

And by all means, criticize away. I did earlier - it seems like he isn't focused. All I'm saying is I like what Blash is doing, trusting his #1 and showing the world that he IS the #1.

Point taken.  I don't think it's a horrible thing for Blash to let the young goaltender work through some issues either.

I'm not sure anyone is going to question who the number one is at this point. Even the best goalies get pulled, there's still no doubt they're the best.

Hasek never got pulled did he?  He never had an off game did he?  Did we ever criticize him or his play?  Never.  Right?  ;)


OH!

The thing is, if you put in Howard then suddenly the questions start again: Who is the Detroit goalie? Is this a timeshare? Is it a 1a, 1b situation or is Howard still the backup? I think Blashill is showing great poise and judgment in allowing his goalie to work through a bad day. He knows what the consequences would be of throwing the goalie situation back into doubt; instead, he's making a statement about who our #1 goalie is and that he has confidence in his ability to figure it out. I like it. It's a bold move.

 

Was that Pasha's goal? 

If we use that mentality, is there's now a question if Rask is truly Boston's number one?  I don't think so.  You dress a back-up so you have a goaltender that's having an off day, they can be replaced.  Sure, the situation in Detroit has been tenuous at best this year, but I don't think pulling Petr after giving up five goals on less than 20 shots means that you're questioning his starter/#1 status.

 

Also, I don't think just because Petr is the number one it doesn't mean that we don't have the right to criticize an off game.

Luckily our offense/Rask is keeping us in it. Don't get me wrong, I am not turning my back on Mraz, he is our goalie. Just not his day.

Monster is now in goal and will probably shut the door on us.

 

Like I said earlier. It's on Blash to switch goalies. Mrazek clearly has been off. 

...but it doesn't mean us couch coaches can't comment.  #saythatfivetimesfast

 

NEVERMIND.   Petr's the best again!

DEKEYSER!!!!!!

It's really not that bad.  A couple weeks and you won't even notice the changes...  until they change it again.
