Well, from what I've seen this year, he's been solid. He hasn't given up many softees and he has made some unreal saves. Frazee's been the same way. In the first game against St. Johns, the only bad goal was the second and I believe the Devils guy deflected it. The other two were cross-crease passes that he actually came over very well on but the shooter placed it perfectly. On the third one, it was a pass from the top of the left circle to the middle of the right circle and he covered most of the net, just the shooter picked a spot just barely out of his reach.
Kinkaid has more losses than wins, but I'd say they are playing equally as well. If they were going into the playoffs and had to ride one goalie, I'd go with Frazee right now, but I think they can both get it done.
It was a hypothetical situation. They still have a solid chance. If they turned half of those shootout losses into wins, they'd be in or tied for a playoff spot. In the past seven games, they are 2-1-4, they are playing well and staying in games, and rallying back in some of them.
Albany definitely has a shot to make the playoffs. Especially if the lockout continues. Remember they've lost 4 shootouts and have missed Whitney, Urbom and Gelinas for extended periods. It also looks like Larsson and Henrique have started to shown some life on offense
Kinkaid is interesting...some of the goals he allows you really have to scratch your head about...but then he pulls off 3-5 saves in a row he had no business making.
So you're saying he's like Marty?
Should fit right in then!
Albany has been averaging 3-4 goals the last few games finally. Though they've also been giving up more goals than they had. Also getting outshot 45 to 32 last night I believe. Finally looking like a team with superior NHL talent though.
He does suck as a coach, but I doubt he's going anywhere. As has been said they are more concerned with development, than the record which is fine in the A. Though I'd say there has to be a line somewhere.
