glad he had a good game. it was nice to see him play a whole game without letting in a stinker.
Any goalie we had here in recent years sucked. Don't you think that it's maybe because the team in front of them sucked?

OR MAYBE the coach sucked? You know,the one who never accomplished anything here? The one we fired recently? No? Don't you think?

In the end,that maroon just ruined the confidence in both our goalies. Props to Carlyle for doing the right thing now and just running with Gus.
Reimer got 2 straight shutouts to start February, the first one coming off a back to back, before he really started to stink it up. Can't really blame Wilson for starting Reimer to start the month. You aren't gonna sit a goalie shortly after he just got 2 straight shutouts.

I will agree with you and say that Wilson did make an error by sticking by Reimer for too long. By that time, Gus was cold and back to his terrible play.

Part of this is on Wilson as he should of platooned both goaltenders more effectively to keep them both sharp. But, part of this is on Gus as a good goaltender should be able to stay sharp without playing. It's what makes a good goaltender.

Kessel being a top 5 scorer doesn't cut it for me. I want at least 8 Art Ross trophies from Kessel, if not more.

I missed that game, but it's fitting that it would sink us. I mean, we only celebrate every OTHER Saturday night here right? We celebrate something someone did when we were good, or at least not ******.

It would be nice if we could start celebrating the team doing well. What's so interesting to me is there isn't a single player I'd put as a lock as far as putting their number on the back of my jersey right now.

I'll definitely keep an eye on him wherever he goes. And then when he's succeeding,whether here or elsewhere,I'll make sure to rub it in your face.

Gustavsson has too much talent to be bad on a good team. If this was Detroit,he would be better than Howard.

I agree.

if he were on Buffalo he would be better than Miller.

if he were on NYR he would be the new King

if he were on Montreal he would be better than Price.

can't wait for next year

The Philly game before. After losing a game to the Jets they should have won they came out with a total lack of effort in the first period against the Flyers. I can remember everybody saying that no way this team was going to be going far in the playoffs with that lack of guts. Sadly it was just a taste of what we were going to see the rest of Wilson's tenure.

Gustavsson played very well tonight.

The Pittsburgh meltdown, the flub of the floating dump in overtime, and then again another softie in Pittsburgh again.

They might still be in it, but too many teams have to fail for them to have any chance.

That Montreal game by far. I can understand losing to the Jets and Flyers to an extent, but that game was downright pathetic and embarrassing.

And I've said the same thing. Better hope Toronto keeps this guy...Patience and a time for adjustment is what we've seen thus far and he's shown stretches of very good goaltending.

I'm a Howard fan and dont' know if Gus would be better, but he's got the talent to make an impact. We've seen it here, but somehow we ignore all the elements of development that good teams don't.

Here's some food for thought old guy. Considering the fact that Carlyle keeps playing Gus,that would mean that the management still has hope in this guy and want to see what he's got in him.
I'm inclined to think that these guys know more about the game and Gus himself than you.

You can stop answering. I'll put you on my ignore list to not bother anymore.

also, i'd like to point out that cole mistook kessel for grabovski or vice versa at least twice tonight, and it was great when HNiC cut to commercial right as a fight was about to happen (the most exciting thing in the game up to that point).

CBC is just not that good anymore.

I like TSN a whole lot better nowadays.

Has to be in one season too. They have to add more art rosses or else he's just not good enough.

Seriously, you gotta stop this nonsensical Kessel bashing. I was at the game and Kessel was the most dangerous player on the ice and didn't cost us any goals.
