I do agree that the Flyers have a very hard working team, and yeah, it's frustrating to see your #1 not play up to par, but I don't think making a comment like that is going to necessarily help the situation either. As a Rangers fan, I'd consider myself pretty lucky having a guy like Henrik back there to depend on, and I'm sure that helps the team's confidence as a whole. I can see your argument regarding his play having an affect on the team for sure, though.
I gotta say, I didn't catch the Breezy article calling out his defenders. I'd actually like to check that out because it makes things prettyyy interesting if both sides are taking little jabs at each other.
Judging simply from the game on Sunday, he had legitimate chances to save the 2nd goal (Gabby), 3rd goal (Del Zotto), and 4th goal (Dubinsky). Again, I can definitely see the frustration that goes into it, but there's no doubting Bryz's talent. He's just taking a little longer to put it together.
I'm not trying to hate on Bob too much, but despite the good record, 2.70 GAA isn't exactly the greatest. I think he's done alright, but IMO, Bryz is your #1 despite all the lackluster play.
Dear Ranger fan, despite the fact that I hate your current Rangers team more than any previous one (and I hated Adam Graves oh so much), I agree with you that Timonen should not have called out a teammate even though that teammate did call out the defense in the past.
Bryz is paid to be a top player on this team as has been very few times this season. If fact, he has been one of the worst on the ice more games than he has been one of the best IMO. So that is where the frustration comes from.
Bob is exactly what a team would want in a sophomore goalie. He works his butt off to improve and has. I think he will be good enough to win a cup behind one day.
