"We need Roman Cechmanek in goal to bounce back a little bit. Not that he played poorly, but he had two injuries that knocked him out of the lineup for awhile.
I understand that DT is trying to be very politic in what he says so as not to alienate Roman, but come on. The only time that I was even relatively comfortable with our goaltending situation last season was during those two injury stretches.

cech did suck and i hate him more then any king (anyone can vouch for that), but it's no good mouthing off on Roman while we have him on contract for one more year. he's unstable as it is, no use making him even worse.

I'd imagine that after all his time spent in Philly, he's gotten used to much harsher criticism from much more pissed off fans, and I would hope that he's not at the point where my post would plunge him futher into the abyss.

And the fact is that Cechmanek was a major disappointment last year. I've been very critical of him also, just as I would be of any player who is not performing up to standard. I view him as a part of the reason we were unsuccessful in making the playoffs this past season. My previous remarks weren't just "mouthing off". After the first quarter of the season, I honestly felt more comfortable when he was not in net. It's my opinion. I wasn't taking a personal shot at him (not saying I never have), I was just saying that his performance was sub-par and he needs more than a little rebound next year. Personally, I'm expecting him to have a comeback season, but until he does, I'll continue to be critical of his performance in a Kings uniform because I know that he can play better than he has for us.
