Gotta have that shot, weak goal. If it's game 6 of the finals in OT I wonder how the masses react?

On the other hand, how would they react if it was the second goal allowed in a 6-2 October win?

Just don't leave your post until the puck hits you. Easy.

We should probably trade him and acquire any goalie that may be available. That goal was just that bad.

Bob's gained my respect. I don't only think him to be capable, but very good. I suppose if you're trying to point out that fans overreact to bad goals, then I suppose you'd be right. In fairness to Bob, he made some saves he had no business making and fared pretty well overall. There's no point in sugar coating it though, that goal was pure ****.

The goal was a fluke.

There isn't a goalie in the world that reacts fast enough to stop a puck that changes course 20 feet in front of them at ~60mph. The goal might've been pure ****, but it wasn't because Bob screwed up or anything. He had the original shot saved easily. The puck caught a rut, bounced, and he wasn't lucky enough to have it hit him anyway. That would've gotten by anyone. ANYONE.

Not the Flyers guardian. He's telekinetic. Ha! pwned!! (do I really need to ?)

Seriously, I was trying to find a video of it, but from the angles I remember, Bob could have done a much better job getting square to the shot and minimizing the potential bounce past him. Of course stuff happens, but great goaltenders make this a rarity. We shouldn't be talking about a questionable goal every 1-2 games.

That's probably fair to say of his last few games. He has let in the odd softy. But that's the difference between the great goalies and great prospects IMO. They all have the talent to make ridiculous saves. A lot of the difference is in who screws up the least. Bob's still a great prospect/decent goalie.

No, you're imagining it . At least explain your opinion.

There should be a poll option that says:

This poll sucks

I just think it is very silly to have a poll question who to blame or not blame in the 60th game of the regular season against a rookie goalie on a first place team that really doesn't really matter or make a difference :-p

Next time Bob makes a great athletic save let's make a poll:

"Should Bob have let that goal go in?"

I think it's an interesting discussion, especially with the still-painful history of a nothing shot losing Game 6 and the Stanley Cup. I don't think anyone is gauging their eyes out over Bob's miscue, but the POVs do show how we approach the G position.

Here's how we approach it: Nothing good is ever properly rewarded, any minor negative thing (IE, fluke bounce goal that has 0 impact on the season as a whole) gets overblown because very few people here understand goaltending in the slightest.

Where does it say anything about blame? The question is whether or not you expect your goalie to make the save. Some people are overreacting a bit too much here.
