Player of the Game & The Good, The Bad, The Redden: Game #50 @ Atlanta Thrashers
Player of the Game & The Good, The Bad, The Redden

The RulesWhat is the poll for?

You are voting for the player of the game - the one who put forth the most effort, who put the team on his shoulders, who contributed the most.

Do not vote for the player who had the best statistical game just because he had the best statistical game.

This does not mean you should not vote for the player of who had the best statistical game, but do not vote for him just because of that fact.

Who can I vote for?

You may vote for any player who dressed for the game and played at least one shift. If the player you want to vote for is not included in the poll, select "Other" and indicate in your post who you wish to vote for. In the case that I egregiously miss the player who everyone wants to vote for in the poll, I will count the votes in the thread.

What is this "The Good, The Bad, The Redden" nonsense?

It is my twist on the title of the famous spaghetti western movie, The Good, the Bad and the Ugly.

Since multiple players may have outstanding games and you can only vote for one player in the poll, this affords you the opportunity to recognize multiple players, or a facet of the team, for their commendable play ("The Good"). This also affords you the opportunity to rip players, or a facet of the team, for their particularly substandard play ("The Bad"). Finally, just as "The Player of the Game" affords you the opportunity to recognize the best, this affords you the opportunity to commend the crème de la crème of the worst, who delivered an atrocious performance, or whose singular (or multiple) bad plays directly led to the the detriment of the team ("The Redden").

Voted Boyle. It's unbelievable how good his season has been. It's now reasonable to expect him to score 25 goals this year.

Machinehead 01-22-2011 08:43 PM


The good: We got balls; another warrior-like effort, contained Byfuglien, Boyle and Zuc

The Bad: Two more goals against form in front of our net. We gotta clear better.

The Redden: More injuries, Byfuglien's ugly face.

Placid 01-22-2011 08:43 PM

The good : Again the W2 - Step - Zucc line in my opinion, they are easily our best line.
The bad : And again, the PP is really really bad.
The Redden : Additional injuries.. this is getting beyond ridicilous :/

DMPD 01-22-2011 08:43 PM

I'm giving Player of the Game to Boyle because he's the mega clutch.

The Good: w2-Step-Zucc, again. Henrik, the defense. Zucc in the shootout.
The Bad: More injuries!
The Redden: Even more injuries!

NyRangers88 01-22-2011 08:44 PM

Frolov award goes to Gaborik :sarcasm:

Speedtrials 01-22-2011 08:44 PM

I still can't believe the year Brian Boyle is having. Props to Slats, Torts, and Brian himself for living up to his potential.

mike14 01-22-2011 08:45 PM

Good win, fought back hard.

MOM = Boyle. Tied up, created some chances and was solid in all 3 zones.

Good = Lundy, Staal, Gilroy (really lifted his game), the Stepan line and the Whalepack guys

Bad = they weren't clearing the crease well enough, not scoring on the PP, especially the 5-3

Redden = injuries, WTF is going on?

we want cup 01-22-2011 08:45 PM

Tough choice, but I went with Avery. He was all over the place this game. Extremely effective.

I agree.

I thought Zuccarello had a great game even before the shootout goal. He may be the best passer on the team right now.

Loffen 01-22-2011 08:46 PM

- POTG: Boyle the saviour.

- Good: The defensive effort.

- Bad: Wasting chances. Stewart's goal.

- Redden: The ****ing injuries.

Groot 01-22-2011 08:48 PM

The Good: D-Step's line
The Bad:The PP
The Redden: The injuries.

WeWillWinTonight 01-22-2011 08:48 PM

Brian Boyle is the man tonight because of that tie goal beauty.

Really was happy with McDonagh, Avery, and Wolski tonight though.

Such a great 2 points to snag.

Vitto79 01-22-2011 08:49 PM

Stepan, Zuch, Wolski looking good. gotta like Wolski he's working hard.............2 more freaking games then hopefully some bodies get back

i'm praying for Cally , Dubinsky , Christensen by Feb7th vs Detroit because well i'll be at that game,:yo:

WeWillWinTonight 01-22-2011 08:49 PM

LMAO Zucc's interviews are classic. He's great.

Mint Berry Crunch 01-22-2011 08:50 PM

Hahahaha Zucc with the nice ass. :sarcasm:

McDonagh 01-22-2011 08:50 PM

meant to vote for Boyle

jas 01-22-2011 08:50 PM

Good - Winning on the road after losing Girardi and Prust

Bad - More injuries

Redden - John Giannone interviewing MZA

Groot 01-22-2011 08:52 PM

Lol at Zucc's interview

Mint Berry Crunch 01-22-2011 08:52 PM

Player of the Game: I gave it to Zucc, though Boyle and Hank are both deserving as well.
The Good: Rangers gut out another win, gotta love it.
The Redden: Drury and injuries. :facepalm:

Wraparounds 01-22-2011 08:52 PM

I love Zuccarello so much. :laugh:

"Sorry for my language."

EmpireStateofMind 01-22-2011 08:54 PM

I posted this in the GDT:

Anaheim wins in the SO!:handclap:

So that means we're a point ahead in the standings.
