To dismiss it by saying the team in front of him was lousy is a little odd because, by definition, it was a playoff team he was playing for and those stats come from 2 different junior teams plus his minor pro team in Providence. So all 3 teams were lousy even though they made playoffs?
Several people here have dismissed the stat as insignifcant, but I was made aware of it by Pierre McGuire on the radio, and heard it brought up again on Sportsnet, so clearly there are hockey observers that think Raycroft's total lack of success in 'pressure' games could be a factor.
As for the person who felt the need to 'apologize' for this 'idiotic thread' give your head a shake.
Since when is stating a fact idiotic?
Tell you what, look at these stats from the last time Raycroft was in any kind of playoffs and tell me it was his fault that his team lost.
GP - 4
W - 1
L - 3
GAA - 1.36
S% - .955%
Man talk about a choker!!!
