Similar, the people who think Holtby was omgamazing because there were six players trying to block shots in the defensive zone at all times. Neuvy saw through it, he could have succeeded in the playoffs by just having to stand there and hope the puck hit him if the other team got to take a low percentage chance.
lets be honest on holtby. he had games where he was the difference. he had games where he let the team down. he also had a couple of games where he was both. game 1 v boston for instance. he was strong and kept the team in the game. then he gave up a soft goal in overtime for the loss. i dont remember all the details, but didnt holtby stink it up in game 1 v the rangers?

all that said, they were one win away from the ecf and the ward thing was haunting. what gets lost in that was that the caps had a power play for an insurance goal midway to late in the 3rd and chose not to even try and score a goal. didnt they dump the puck in and send one forechecker and with 4 guys waiting at center on a power play?

it was a joke.
