I'd hang up so fast and chuckle like I am now.
Thank you!! Was getting worried that Flames fans were going insane...
He isn't THAT good.
1st Goal: Takes the wrong guy isn't even facing the play...
3rd Goal: Beat by the outside speed of Daniel Sedin...and Daniel Sedin isn't even that fast.
5th Goal: As you can see Bouwmeester pinches and gets caught
Please allow me to help you learn a little about hockey as a sport.
1st goal - Boumeester had his man, the trailing player should have been picked up by our "outstanding defensive forward" Backlund (wearing #60) or Bourque (#17) although let's face it, Bourque couldn't backcheck his way out of a wet paper bag.
3rd goal - Daniel Sedin beat him like a rented mule on that one. He deked, Bouwmeester bought it. Last I heard though, those Sedin guys aren't that bad.
5th goal - Nystrom was covering his pinch, and quit skating halfway through his own zone. Other defenseman (Sarich?) failed to take away the pass and made a piss poor attempt at a block. Bouwmeester covered his man, who was the trailing forward.
Of the three goals you referenced, Bouwmeester could be faulted on one. Is he the second coming of Bobby Orr? No. Is he worth every penny of $6.6 million cap hit, not until the cap goes to $70.3 million at least. Will the Flames trade him? Not unless they tie up another defenseman somewhere else.
