He sucked last year, for the most part, but he was also very unlucky and the victim of very poor defense.

Yeah, it's this disease that infects goalies where nothing they can do is adequate. Wins are products of defense. Losses are products of poor goalie play.
there is overreaction on both ends of the spectrum no matter who is goal. It doesnt matter if its Boucher,Leighton,Bryzgalov or whoever. you have people who overreact to every goal allowed and you have the people who go out of their way to defend the goalie and say its not their fault even if a goal is allowed from center ice.
I dont blame people for reacting to the 2nd part. how many games did the Flyers lose last year when the team scored 4 goals. Probably fair to say it was as much or close to the rest of the league combined. or at least it seemed like it.
