Best part of this game was Millen or however that broadcasters name is spelt. Best line of the day was after the fans started cheering after Reimer stopped an easy shot that just rolled to him in the 2nd and he said " All the Vezina trophy winners in attendance giving it to Reimer after that save"
I actually dispise Phaneuf. Guy is just what flames fans said he was a lazy player who coasts around like he doesn't give a ****. Awful defensivly and the hockey IQ of a squirrel. The cement head couldn't hit the broad side of a barn with his slapper if his life depended on it. I'd be relieved if we shipped his ass outta town in the offseason, but unfortunatly were stuck with him.
Been saying this since forever and I never watched him when he was on Calgary!
At 23, Brodeur already was in his prime, and had won his first Cup at 22.
But we all know he was a product of the system, right?
No doubt that he is a very talented goalie and I wouldn't say that he was a product of the system. But just imagine how much better our team would be if we had the defense that the Devils had earlier in the decade.
Both go hand in hand, great goaltending can only do so much, and so can great defense, but when you have both together, you can pretty much have an unstoppable team.
