As you have stated, I was strictly refering to the Pointstreak sight GAA. That was it, that was all. They are 1 & 2. Not making any bold statements, just was stating the facts as I saw them. No, Cool-aid or as it is actually spelled Kool-aid, but plain and simple facts. I never said that individually they are the best goalies in the league ( you assumed that i guess? and you know what they say when you assume something!). Although both kids are very good, I think there are guys in the league that individually are a step above. Say Guerrerio in Hawks or Lane in Kanata. But with that being said neither of them are good enough on their own to keep their respective teams at the top of the league, as both teams are fighting for their playoff lives.
Their GAA is a result of total team play and I have no doubt if you asked both kids, they would say that their success so far this year is in no small part to the players in front of them and the system that they play. I think your statement that they are "Very Beatable" is disrespectful to 2 very very good goaltenders who back stop a very good team. I could equally say that your goalie is the same (in Zawadski) as he has fallen on hard times as of late and has seemingly been supplanted by Mulder for the #1 spot, but I won't stoop to such a level. Both your goalies are very good as well and I send them kudo's for the season and IN Zawadski's case Seasons he has had.
Your bringing up Osgoode, simply shows you yourself have drank to much of the "kool-aid" that Raider Nation has been feeding it's few, but over voiced fans for too long. i am sure Mr. Osgood and the rest of the RedWings would not trade in the Stanley Cup Rings they won or Millions of Dollars they made during his tenure in the pipes for anything. The fact he played in the NHL at all tells me he was of the best 30 or 40 goalies in the world at the time he played and so< unless you are one of the other 39 or so, i doubt you are qualified to speak on the subject.
Regardless, I will stick with my statement, with an addon, so as to not effect your sensitive Nepean ego. We currently have the #1 and # 2 goalies based on GAA and I am happy we have them and not any of the other very good goalies in the league.
I should have known better than to bring up the fact that CP has the best of anything without one of the Raider faithful throwing a hissy fit. My apologies to all those Raiders fans who chose not to jump all over this Candadians fan. I wish all your players the best in their hockey future and I look forward to watching all these kids CP and others in the Playoffs!
Now, that is a hissy fit
