but Bob was in net, so we can focus on the poor D, and make no 'comparisons' of the D to Bob & the bad goal he let in vs NYR, and 'expectations'

now that Bryz was in net, that same exact poor defensive coverage results in you saying 'that's what you get' 'It sucks, but it's reality' 'the expectations are different' .... 'compared to Bryz .......'

it is clear you are bitter that they didn't sign Vokuon. as a result, you'll even accept bad D coverage, because it is 'more acceptable' than a bad Bryz goal after 9 days off ....

it is NEVER acceptable or understandable for a guy to be THAT wide open in an NHL game

The only thing that is clear is that you have no idea why I wanted Vokoun. I wanted Vokoun not because he's my favorite goalie or anything; in fact, I didn't think he would be as skilled as Bryz. I wanted him because his contract and cap hit would be cheaper; yet he was still good enough that the drop from Bryz's skill level wouldn't be terrible. I had/have zero emotional attachment towards Vokoun, so there is no bitterness.

I'm also not bitter in the slightest towards Bryz because he was signed. I am bitter at Snider and Holmgren for giving him that demented contract, but that's not really Bryz's fault. I would absolutely love to see Bryz succeed and be excellent here, because that would be great for the team.

But no, please, do go on believing that everyone who dares criticize your Bryzgalov for his very underwhelming and disappointing season is part of a grand anti-Bryz conspiracy who irrationally hates him and wishes to see him go down in flames. That makes a lot more sense, sports fans routinely hope for their star players to be terrible, right?
