bottom line: Bryz is NOT good with the puck. some NHL goalies are not. and even Marty [arguably the BEST with the puck] made 5 errors this series.

I know he's not good & you know he's not good & Timonen knows he's not good.

what is asinine is to not recognize that were TWO aspects to that play and TWO mistakes:

in chronological order:
1. Timonen, who wasn't really under much pressure and had at least 2 or 3 other "out" options, passing to his own goalie, then letting Clarkson go in on Bryz free and clear.
2. Bryz for not freezing it. [do not want him trying to play it, anywhere, needs to freeze it, just in case Timonen needed a stop - in which case Timonen needs to yell GET A STOP or FREEZE IT - something to tell Bryz what he was thinking.]

let's stop with ignoring the facts.
