Yesterday I attended a European Hockey Tour game between Finland and Russia here in Helsinki. The Russians won 2-1 in the SO. The Finnish keeper was Karri Ramo, who played a really strong game. He was only beaten by a beauty shot by Radulov. Ramo had very good positioning and some really nice saves. Man oh man would he be a good #2 to Price. He could post strong numbers while playing as our back-up and then we could trade him for some value.
Ben Scrivens looked pretty soild out there and i liked his shootout moves
wasn't he a free agent?
Yes a FA and he choose the Leafs cause of Allaire
After completing his collegiate career, Scrivens had not been selected in the National Hockey League (NHL) Entry Draft, making him an unrestricted free agent, able to sign with any team in the league. The Toronto Maple Leafs signed Scrivens to a one-year contract on April 28, 2010. Scrivens decision to sign with the Leafs was largely due to the presence of goaltending coach Francois Allaire, whom Scrivens had worked with during an off-season goalie camp.
Boucher and coaches like him, employing a system like that are the problem. Hockey is an entertaining sport, but I would not knowingly buy a ticket to that. If I was a season ticket holder and that's what I was being offered, I'd demand a refund.
But but but Boucher is God!
Funny and glad to see that 1-3-1 system being trolled.
Maybe it's a problem with Allaire's coaching, but Scrivens is leaving rebounds out in front just like Reimer and Gustavsson.
Reimer plays a nice quiet style sort of like Price...Gustavsson and Scrivens are nerve wracking to watch and probably hard to play defense in front of, because they give up goals on low quality shots then make a miracle save, they both struggle with rebounds and play deep in nets. If Reimer is out much longer Toronto could drop far in the standings, not taht they were any better than a 8th to 10th team anyways.
