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.
Six, two of which Bob was the goalie of record. I don't have time to look around and see the other teams, but that number doesn't seem too shocking to me (I think two were in shootouts and one was that ridiculous 9-8 game vs. WPG). It probably seemed like a lot more because of the overreactions around here. Haha.
Also I agree there are overreactions on both sides, but it certainly seems like there are lot more overreactions to goals that Patrick Roy wouldn't have had a chance on, than overreactive defenses to goals that were his fault.
