I'm never going to play hockey again.
 
I played a game this morning. I was a goalie.

After the game, the coach came to congratulate me. He said that I have nothing to blame myself for. He said that I made 7 or 8 great saves and let in 7 or 8 soft goals, so in total it's 0-0. Everyone was staring at me.

That's it. I'm done.

Come on, I'm a tender too, one bad game is not a reason to hang 'em up. Review the softies in your head, find out what you did wrong, and work on it next time you're on the ice. If every goalie quit because they had one bad game, there'd be no goalies at all...

Poor excuse for a coach. In 15 years playing hockey I have never heard a coach say something like that, to a goalie no less.

I played goalie more than a few times in my younger minor league days and never heard anything close to that. Believe me, I had my share of really bad games.

Don't give up. A bad game is never fun, but as another poster said, you can learn from it. Everyone has a bad game now and then, don't let that or a jackass coach make you give up the game.

I'm never going to play hockey again...
 
... For the Montreal Canadiens?

I wonder if that's what Tremblay told Roy to make him demand a trade.

Twist and Shout 02-10-2006 04:45 PM

Everyone has a bad game, but these jackass coaches seem to be few and far between.

dbbourn 02-10-2006 04:57 PM

Do not quit. It is obvious you are a goalie because you have the #1 trait all good goaltenders must have... I can't quite explain it, but it borders on irrational and nutty. Exactly what goalies need to decide that they intend on standing in front of that net to block shots.

FLYLine27 02-10-2006 04:58 PM

What a jackass your coach is, tell hiim at the end of the season "Well coach good job, it was obvious you had no idea how to coach a team but we won you a couple of games by our play and no help from you, now go back to coaching squirts"

Grave77digger 02-10-2006 05:32 PM

well atleast your better than the goalie we played against on wednesday... he let in 12 goals on 22 shots

Polska 02-10-2006 05:50 PM

Man, this is like a suicide note. Don't do it! You'll bounce back man. I'm sure if you stop playing for a while you're gonna miss it and come back to it. I always do.

Millions Livio 02-10-2006 05:50 PM

Let me tell you this, DO NOT QUIT....

I was seriously injured in my last game, I got checked from behind very badly and the stick hit my tailbone and inverted it..

I couldn't even walk for a month..

I'd kill to play hockey again, but I cannot take the risk, please, do not quit playing this wonderful game just because one bad game, you'll regret it big time..

The Tikkanen 02-10-2006 06:13 PM

2 touchdowns and a field goal you guys would've won, you gotta look at the bright side.

Jacob 02-10-2006 11:17 PM

I've had my share of bad games and ******* coaches but I've never heard that before.

nic29+ 02-10-2006 11:55 PM

Don't quit. Your coach should have never said what he did.
You learn from your mistakes and get better.

Pizza 02-11-2006 02:06 AM

Sometimes you have to let the A-holes in life motivate you. Your coach is a moron and he insulted you. Consider the source and move on.

hfboardsuser 02-11-2006 07:11 AM

Hey guys, Bob Gainey's not that bad.

Suck it up and get ready for the next game.

It is constructive criticism from the coach. He is telling you the truth but don't take it the wrong way. Improve your play and don't let it affect you but take it as a challenge for the next game.

Exactly

Did Jose Theodore quit when he let down Montreal with a series of playoff exists? NO

Did Jose Theodore quit after all the scandals surrounding his family came to surface? NO

Did Jose Theodore quit after the Montreal Canadiens drafted a goalie with their 1st draft pick in 2005 as an obvious sign that they planned to replace him? NO

Did Jose Theodore quit after all the trade rumors surfaced that he was being shipping out of town? NO

Did Jose Theodore quit after not being named to the Canadian Olympic team? NO

Did Jose Theodore quit after being blown out in several consecutive games and letting in 18 goals on 63 shots to end the month of January? NO

Did Jose Theodore quit after being accused of using a masking agent to cover up performance enhancing drugs which is commonly found in hair growth pills? NO

Did Jose Theodore...

Hilarious post. But yeah, stick with it. One stupid coach shouldn't end your career.

Masao 02-12-2006 07:51 AM

I know what you guys are saying, but in any case my knees are completely shafted anyway and I'd better just quit before I start needing a wheelchair. The only reason they made me play goal was because I can hardly skate. I just stand there and hope that the puck hits me... no fun. :shakehead

Lindros_for_rizzle_ 02-12-2006 07:55 AM

Haha, cool coach, gotta love him. :biglaugh:

You can do one of two things:

You can work on your skating and/or your goal-tending

OR

You can quit.

We can't make the decision for you. It all depends on just how much you want to play the game.

There is always someone who had a worse game or a worse experience but things will get better. When I was peewee my team played an All Star team and we lost 35-0 (I kid you not). Shots on goal were 108-2. I played defense and probably blocked another 30 shots by myself. Our team actually won games in our own league and we could actually play a little. The other teams coach comes in our locker room after the game and tells us we are the worst team ever to lace up skates. He is single and has no kids. Here comes the silver lining part. About 8 years later I end up coaching this guys step son (he married the mom of a kid on my peewee team) as a peewee and he has no hockey skill what so ever but a lot of heart. I turned the kid from a bench warmer into a terrific grinder who skated a regular shift. He saw how much that changed the kids whole life and remembered back to when he and I first met and apologized to me 8 years later and we became pretty good friends.
If I would have quit hockey that day, none of that other stuff would have happened nor most of the rest of the great things I have in my life would have happened. I met my wife coaching her brother. We're divorced but I owe my great kids to hockey in a way and my son plays now too and loves it.
Don't quit because of some knucklehead. If you love the game, then just play for that and be happy about that. You never know what it might lead to later.

JeffW 02-12-2006 02:20 PM

I'm goalie coach for my sons team and that jackass of a coach you have should be removed from the bench for making a comment like that. I seriously hope he was joking.

I hope you don't quit. When I have a bad game I use it as motivation to work that much harder to improve. Don't let a bad game or a dumb comment from an ignorant coach drag you down. Draw strength from it.

And maybe you could remind the coach that it's his job to instruct you in proper goaltending technique. :shakehead
