Do you really want to me find the number of posts you have in the goalie debate thread? Nobody here is even questioning the defense's efforts tonight, so why the hell would you even think of bringing it up unless it was for some stupid agenda you have for absolving Halak of the loss (which I don't think is his fault, but by your above comment, it appears as if you're trying to MAKE SURE that no one thinks it is).
Fill your boots man. Search my username and the words Halak and Price ever since they both joined the Habs and put together your case for what you think my opinion is. I encourage you. Your "e-cred" would be best served by giving up now though, seriously.
And it wasn't to "absolve Halak" (of course you'd put it that way), but more to point the finger to the obvious culprit in tonight's fiasco. Especially given that last one, where a 2-on-2 somehow turned into a breakaway --> penalty shot --> goal. Then Briere all alone in front twice, a lucky rebound to an open Richards at the side of the net, and a break-away cannot be pinned on a goaltender.
But the Price superfans have had to eat a lot of crow lately about Halak, so I guess it's just natural that there'd be such a rabid push-back after tonight.
really can't help but think Price would have made a difference tonight. This would have been personal for him, and he was in such a zone last night.
yeah a lot of people were favouring a Price start (even brunet saying that now) tonight, but if he had, it would have been a disaster media/controversy-wise. This, is the problem with the goalie debate (and it works vice versa sometimes too). Should be what's best for the team.
