Well, you see, the thing is, I try to have some faith in the bright minds of some of my hfboards brethren. And there's this guy, Jester I think his name was...and I was complaining big time about this team not keeping Niitty...and he was telling me how much more faith he had in Boucher than Niitty. So, you see, sometimes I try and put some faith in stuff like that and hope it might have been a somewhat reasonable thing to say. It is for reasons such as that one that I'd like to think Boucher will not go out and post a few terrible starts.
I have no problem with Boucher as a backup...still don't. But I'm not going to crucify him if he sucks when he goes out there because...he's been getting paid to sit on his butt during games and stop practice shots...not exactly what prepares you to play in the toughest league in the world. I also didn't have a problem with Nitty as a backup...he got games, and when Biron was getting overplayed I was complaining about that.
That was also due to a hot goalie and lack of trust in Nitty...similar to now.
