They do - by they also have better and longer track records of consistent good play. Andersens big criticism prior to the Leafs trade was that his cold streaks were more common than most goalies.

Personally I do like Andersen but so far this season I don't think he's maintained enough consistency to. Silence those claims from his critics just yet.

One area of Freddy's game that I've started to take for granted is his puck handling. Last night there was a play where it went behind the net and with a couple Lightning players charging in, Andersen calmly stopped it and made a nice pass to the D-man on the boards. I realized this is something you don't worry about nearly as much anymore. In the past it was always more of a high-risk scenario with the Leafs.

Every time Reimer had to play the puck I would clench my butt so tight.

Sounds logical. One thing to question though. How often is the shooter under pressure? The defenders ability to apply pressure on the shooter must have an enormous effect on a goalies save%. Its one of those thing you cannot have stats on, I think, because it will be a subjective thing, and therefore interpreted differently from rink to rink.

It's not by accident Andersen has this great puckhandling either. In 1990, Lou Lamoriello drafted Martin Brodeur, the greatest puckhandling goalie of all time. In 2013, he traded a 1st round pick to get Cory Schneider to succeed Brodeur. In 2016, he trades a first round pick to grab Freddy Andersen.

What do all these guys have in common? All three of those guys are big, tall thick bodied goalies who are built to shoulder a workhorse goalie's work load, and they have excellent puckhandling skills.

It's trademark Lou.

Another great game.
He is a stud.
Reimer is jealous.

He was EVERY bit as good as I wanted him to be and we just couldn't finish, heart breaking but they keep pace with the NYI and gain a point on TB

Just loving Freddie more and more as time goes by. Would feel quite confident with him in net when we're finally in the playoffs again.

He was lights out again last night. His inconsistency this season has been blown out of proportion a bit - he's played 58 games this year and his only extended bad stretches were his first 5 games of the year, and the 4 game stretch from January 31st to February 6th. It's not at all unusual for a high calibre goalie to have a couple rough patches throughout a season.. just look at Price this year. On the whole, Freddy's been incredible for us and he's the main reason we are where we are at this point in the year

Our goalie is a Bruins killer. After years of them killing our goalies, it feels ****ing amazing.

Andersen has been steady back there. That's why we traded for him. Our young team needs the confidence knowing Freddy will cover up some of our mistakes. Imagine this team with a Bernier or Reimer in net.

Andersen has slowly made me into a big fan.

This is the most confident that I've been in our goaltending since Belfour. Does Andersen allow some soft goals? Yes, he does. Do you know who else had a knack for allowing softies? Curtis Joseph.

To he fair Bernier is on fire since Gibson went down with injury and Anaheim is reportedly going to run with him into the playoffs even when Gibson comes back.
Reimer on the other hand has not carried the same weight since Luongo got hurt.

In the end beyond happy with the move to bring in Andersen. As a whole he's just had a hugely strong year and is such a big part of us being in this position to battle into the playoffs.

Keeps his head even when things are....chaotic. Been a while since we had someone that trustworthy back there.

Thats not really fair. Zeke needed some more games before he made an opinion on Andersen. The stats he presented was ok to a certain point.

Now I think Zeke is slightly above an average positive opinion about Andersen to stay in goaltender terms.

The hard Andersen haters is going to be more of a challenge. RCS and that other fun guy that totally ignore season stats is just getting to the point where it is hilarious.

Right here, but he may be pushing his was to "above average"
