I wonder how much tighter the oilers grasp their sticks in their own zone because they are scared to make a mistake because they don't have confidence the goalie can or will stop the puck.
We've seen it with many team over the years that it does affect the play of the skaters if they have no faith in their goalie to not only make a big save, but the saves he should.
Replacement hits it dead on when he said "has anybody ever seen a goalie this tall use his frame so poorly and be so absolutely inept at covering top half of net? Its almost incomprehensible how he can make himself so small."
it's also amazing that a guy his size leaves so much room between himself and the posts, too.
