No, he just wasn't ready which was pretty apparent. I mean, I've defended Nodl on here to Jester in particular, but he could not cut it in 08-09 and didn't do anything this year either.
What is? His +/- back then? Because that shows exactly what kind of player he is now right?
Frankly I'm not surprised you don't know all that much about Nodl's development.
Out of curiosity, what are your sources for Flyers' prospects development? Do you go to AHL games? Do you sit in the pressbox? Do you go to NHL combines and interview prospects? Do you talk with agents?
I mean, all I see right now is a guy who couldn't hack it in 08-09 and then did well in very limited PO minutes. Have you seen 30-40 Phantoms games that show differently?
You're right, because I was so wrong when I said that the team matters more than the goaltending. I love how people put words in my mouth saying, "goaltending doesn't matter." Sure, you need a goalie. You can't play the game with six skaters at all times.
The reality is though that a vast majority of the members here, yourself included, vehemently overrate the impact of the position, particularly the difference between elite, above-average, and average.
All that happened since people started calling into question my credibility, was that I was proven correct.
I find it funny that you're still questioning my credibility. Who are you to question that? I'm not saying this as a staff member, I'm saying this as a peer on this forum right now. Who are you to call into question my beliefs and my theories and my analysis when my track record so far is probably near spotless on everything various people called into question my credibility on?
Really, what makes you so much better than me?
We just lost the Stanley Cup Finals because a goalie (who you supported) absolutely blew ass, sucked, and lost several games for us singlehandedly, and we "overrate the impact of the position."
So the impact of Leighton blowing the Finals for us is insignificant?
