Budaj should never sigh or criticize anyone over stick handling...the guy is awful with the stick....and the 5-hole...and...well Budaj is just as good as Raycroft, and that's not exactly a compliment
Not sure he criticized. He mostly just sat there and sighed. But that could be because of the rest of the team as well. Point is, in warmup he at least tried. Actually had a nice wrist shot. Raycroft seemed scared to pass the puck to the circle with three guys back and nobody coming towards him.
Also, Laperriere made a better save than Raycroft made all night. Kudos.
Thanks DD...You'd still think that would be something the in-house broadcast team would mention though. But hell...I was drinking pretty heavily too when I watched it in DVR. Maybe I just missed them slurring something about a new opportunity opening up for another player.
