And besides, my comment was mainly aimed toward Idealistic Sniper since he tends to take a pretty hostile approach to everyone on here, and then when people get tired of arguing with the wall he sarcastically declares himself the winner. This is a pretty consistent phenomenon.
That's a very fair and well-balanced comment
. I'm not saying I'm right or that you're wrong, just that I took a different perspective on it. Glad to know you understand why I called it a softie too. For me, not seeing the puck doesn't change whether or not a goal is soft. It does, however, change my perspective on whether the goalie's at fault.
For example, when Couturier scored from the corner of the rink on Lindback earlier this year, that was a soft goal AND was Lindback's fault. He saw the puck, it was a weak shot and it went between his five hole. The shot itself should have never gone in, which is how I generally arrive to the conclusion of a goal being "soft"
Agree to disagree, but I think we both CAN agree that it wasn't Bishop's fault, which is the important thing here.
