I'll explain...

Turek's piss poor play, causes the team to not have faith in him, the try to be cute and too perfect and they make mistakes infront of him...

Period...end of story.....Thanks for coming out.

Turek is in a word Anti-clutch

Look at the 4-0 win over Nashville....Roman was probably the best goalie you could have in in a game like this...but if the game is on the line he'll screw up...time and again.....his last playoff game as a St Louis Blue...? He was on the bench...

This is a long standing trend....

Look at the tampa game....Flames up 1-0 late in the First.....Flames playng pretty well...Roman lets in two of teh worst goals all season ansd early into the second the Flames are down 2-1....From there on in, Roman can't benearily as blamed as the players infront of him

but at 4.5 million Turek has to step it up....he can't let in goals at the very worst times

Look at the Hawks game....Turek lets in 3 bad goals...and had no chance on the last 2...why was the end of the game the Flames players have given up on Roman...they tried to be to perfect...too cute out there and they made gastly mistakes...

You can blame the D all you want.....but there's a reason the D has played bad of late...Roman's been in goal.....duh....

Anyway I would like to say that Roman tends to play a bit better away from the Flames fans...though really we pay his contract and he's making 4.5 mill he needs to step it up and not blame us like he did...Look at Vernon...we booed Vernon...

Man, if the defense is actually using Turek as an excuse then we don't even deserve to make the playoffs. We're complaining that we're paying Turek all this money, and that he should be playing a whole lot better... but if I am not mistaken we're paying the defense too. It's there job to give their very best no matter who's in net, and I think no one will argue that they haven't been playing their best at all lately. I just hate that we have begun to single Turek out lately, sure I don't think he's the answer to our playoff run, and I am sure that once Kipper gets back the starting job will be his. But to blame the last couple of games solely on the performance of Turek is absolutely rediculous. Sure he let in some soft goals, but the defense has also allowed on average more shots per game lately. But all in all, this is a team game, and if we're going to let Turek be the scapegoat for the defense's poor play of late, then that is truly unfair. The defense and Turek have been playing brutal lately. I mean today they gave up 4 goals to the Ducks.

But we all could probably agree that the best thing for a Flames fan is to see Turek in an Oiler's uniform.
