I know when I used to play, I got more pissed off and bummed when my goaltender let in a softy compared to how pumped I got when he made a great save he shouldn't have. They are all equally important.
New goalie coach is about the last option prior to moving on. Meloche must be in with ML to still have a job.
When I played, it was more important to me that my goalie shut the door in the third. If he was going to let in a soft goal or three, I wanted that to come early on.
There were also a number of times my teams won 2-1, 1-0 because our goalies
made the saves when we needed them.
Not every game is a three to four goal game and even those games require a winning goalie to make the saves at the right time. That is the difference between a money goalie and a good goalie. Some guys can't handle that pressure, other guys like Barrasso, rose to the occasion.
If you played the game, you surely know what a back breaker goal is. So saying it is nonsense about goalies making saves when they need to, is ********.
