As a goalie, Bishop says he has no problem with players wanting to try new moves.
"I know when I saw it the first time I wasn't sure if he was serious or messing around," Bishop said. "He's beat me a few times with it because he can do different things off of it which makes it really effective." http://www.cbc.ca/sports/hockey/nhl/...daugavins.html
He could easily flip his stick and do a little backhand/forehand deke or just go for the simple wrister. IMHO there are lots of ways to mix it up...
At least we're getting points against the top teams in the east. I'd be angrier if all these SO losses were piling up against teams like the Panthers.
Yep, as a rebuilding team with a ton of injuries just making the playoffs is nice. It doesn't matter how many points the teams ahead of us get, just as long as we are getting more then the teams chasing us.
Our next 5 are big ones as 4 of those teams are behind us, and 2 of those are very much in the playoff race
Okay so we're not good at the shootout. This isn't something new guys. We've always been bad at it. So F the shootout and try and win the game BEFORE the shootout. All these comments ripping the goalies for the loss because their bad at shoot outs is getting tiresome.
Did we forget that our goalies are actually keeping us in 95% of our games?
Can someone pull Bishop's Shoot Out stats from last season.
I seem to remember him being brutal.
Why should we go out of our way to prove that our one goalie with a decent record in the shootout this year actually sucks to make our goalie with the poor record not look so bad? I love the kid but Lehnsanity can be dangerous.
There's no doubt that all players do some diving and all teams do it.
There's also no doubt Montreal as a team is one of the worst offenders, if not the worst.
I mean WOW. Constantly feigning **** and then spending a good 5-10 seconds staring at the refs.
Also Pacioretty is without a doubt the dirtiest player in the league. Crosschecking, slewfooting, headhunting, diving. The full package. The thing that really separates him from the competition though? He complains when other people dare to hit him or do the same dirty **** he does.
