It's plenty of fun without battling.  I've been a part of this LGW community for 10 years and the fun has never been about battling for me.

The evidence is where he is on the ice. If he didn't chase Raymond, exactly how did he end up so far beyond his own net facing the back boards?

Also, it's not a fact that it was a weak effort. It was your opinion, which is contrary to video evidence. If anything Mrazek gave too much effort and was overly aggressive.

And if you look, I was critical at the time, and still am. He blew it and gave up a bad goal.

But gave up on the play? please.

Cool.  Again, not looking to battle, just my opinion.  I've never have seen a goalie chase a player with possession of the puck behind the net in the NHL though.

It's a moot point because Mrazek didn't give up on the play.

Watching the replay, he played the initial shot well. It was a three on two and the puck carrier had a lot of room to work. Mrazek came out to play the angle.

Unfortunately the shot hit him and it sounds like it caught part of his mask, and rebounded right back to Raymond. Instead of retreating to his net Mrazek is overly aggressive and chases Raymond beyond his own post.

It was a bad play on his part, but he was great the rest of the game. The idea that a goalie would give up on a play leaving a wide open net is absurd.

Your opinion.  I've watched 10 times now and see no evidence of "Mrazek is overly aggressive and chases Raymond beyond his own post".  He chased Raymond?  If anything it looks like a half hearted attempt to get back in net.  By that time Raymond is in celebration mode.

Absurd a goalie gives up on a play???  Umm, that was the huge knock on Bryzgalov from multiple GM's.  He'd give up on plays.  "Absurd", not really considering we've seen goalies do this.  Unusual, or not typical, yeah...you'd like to think since it's the NHL.

 

Done analyzing one play.  Differing opinions on the play which is cool.  The defensiveness of some of the responses on here was a bit surprising, but hey...whatevs.  I just stand by the fact that It's was an extremely weak effort (effort may be a stretch). It bugs me as I want to win the Stanley Cup this year, and whatever that play was....won't cut it.

Thought about it for 10 seconds, concluded that his rookie goalie made a not so costly mistake, and then moved on to more important things...like helping D. McCarty kick his crack cocaine habit?

 

Or did you think that Scotty never had any issues with players?

No, my point is that Scotty had plenty of issues with players.  Did Scotty know Darren had a crack problem?  Maybe he did, I don't know.  I do know that Shanny got benched for a game cause Scotty thought he "dogged" it on just one shift.  He stated this in an interview with Pierre Mcguire a few years back on Sirius/NHL channel.  An entire game for one perceived lazy shift....one of the best players on the team.


Jesus Christ dude.  Tell us how you really feel lol. 

I know right?

You would set a record for a coach that lost the locker room the quickest ever if that's how you think to handle things. Scotty was old school, this is a new generation of players, they don't handle that well anymore.

 

I bet your an all star at your job, you can't do anything wrong.

Job???  What job??  I was so good at my job that I quit trying and I still get paid.  They refuse to criticize or discipline me.  I don't even show up anymore!!  They know I'm a "new school" type of employee who wouldn't take well to criticism, reprimands, or disciplinary action, so they just let me keep doing what I do.  They may need me for a big client presentation in April, but they're not worried a bit.  They know I'm tough on myself so it might go okay if they do need me.  This is awesome!!
