I differ from C58 here, I think he did to the best of his limited knowledge. It was quite obvious from his play that he unfortunately hadnt been the recipient or beneficiary of anykind of serious coaching in his youth. He was pretty much all raw reaction, trial & error, apparent to those in the know that he'd based his game on soccer goaltending. East west foot movement, leg dangles, almost spastic arm, hands & erratic upper body movement, playing it somewhere between a Curler on the down low horizontal and vertically like a High Jumper doing the Fosbury Flip. Well, quite frankly TDMM, a rather bizarre display of Goaltending to say the least. Sort of guy you wouldnt be surprised to see walking into the dressing room pre-game with a coupla Greek Pizza's, case of beer, consuming both BEFORE he went out on the ice. Follow?
