or, far more likely its just dumb conjecture and too many of you already have your minds made up about crawford and search for evidence to support it instead of looking at the evidence and then forming a conclusion.

he given up 2 goals a game and saved 92.4% of shots that are put on him, that's more than good enough to win with the talent the hawks have. and guess what? they have won, and at a historic rate. some of you have been so taken by the hawks record start that you've deluded yourselves into thinking we should win every game and never give up a goal.

the team that scores over 3 goals a game is held to 2 goals, the goalie who allows 2 goals a game allows 2 goals. and its the goalie's fault? how many games do you realistically think this or any team will win when they don't score an es goal?
out of all the Saves he made yesterday, there wasn't 1 great that others - even Emery - wouldn't have made.

Yes, bad goals given up can deflate the team, the skaters. They do their part but the one who isn't allowed to make mistakes makes them.

He is not Huet. Stop comparing him to Huet. All goaltenders give up soft/bad goals. It happens. It's hockey. You move on.
yes, it happens. Like Toskala and others, it's happens far too often with Corey.

He needs to stop it or we won't make it past the 1st round. I'm starting to be all for getting a good goalie in the offseason. Crawford would need to play lights out in the POs and make stops that make you think how the **** did he do this.

This year, he made as much great saves as he let in softies. That's not a good number. He had 3-5 games where he really won us those games, but he also had games he let in goals he shouldn't have.
