It probably helps I played soccer through high school so at least I know how reality differs from a video game.

I'd also like to point out that I'm completely on your side here. I really like reading these boards for the enjoyment I get from certain people's posts. It's crazy.
Is it entirely fair? No, I guess it's not. There are a lot of knowledgeable people, that love the game, that didn't play at a high level. But, sometimes you get guys like Ralphy and it gets too annoying. I'm not trying to say that because I played at a high level, I know more than anyone, but Crawford did exactly what he was supposed to do on that play and I've played enough, and with enough goaltenders, to know that's how 99% of them would play that situation.
