It's a completely different league. Recent history suggests he chokes in the AHL playoffs. Not only that he's dreadful against the Marlies.

Tiny sample size. I won't argue his record against Toronto, but calling him a choke artist is way off.

No, we are calling for him to be benched against a team that clearly has his number, in favor of a good young goaltender in Hackett--who Toronto probably doesn't know inside and out like Leggio.

As I said, give him one more game. They owe it to him and themselves.

Not the first farm-hand netminder to look bad in a key game in the playoffs however. It's been a long time since they've gotten a full team effort from everyone. I suspect Cassidy will roll Leggio back out for another game and if he folds again, he'll go to Hackett in the elimination game.

#Amerks coach Chadd Cassidy when asked about his starting goalie for Game 2: "Undecided." David Leggio maybe, or a switch to Matt Hackett?

Who is Grigs going in for?

Let's not forget: the Sabres haven't had a 2nd goalie of Hackett's ability for the vast majority of the year. If Hackett had been here from the start, Leggio likely would not have had to carry the load like he did this year--hell, Hackett might have even won the starting job. If it was Knapp or Lieuwen back there, nobody would be calling for Leggio to be benched.

Leggio was VERY bad last season in the playoffs. I'm all for Hackett tomorrow.

Even Boston sheltered Rask from Buffalo no shame in protecting Leggio.

Was at game, leggio sucked.

OTOH.

Saw Zemgus play in September, and again yesterday. What a difference, he's a non stop beast. He and Larsson have got chemistry going, and Johan is a hustler too. If they're our 4th line next year, look out. Psysk was the best skater for either team, though varone is quick too.

Walt Jr, looked a little tired, kinda like his last couple in Buffalo.

Drew McIntyre was playing out of his mind, including a behind the back glove save.

Tim Connolly's ghost was out there too. I swear I saw him, but not quite sure.

It's best of 5. They can't give Leggio another shot.

Meh. Leggio got them there. That said, it doesn't matter to me who starts.

Who would you take out among the forwards?

If they pan out, we'd have a great future 3rd line of Girgs-Larsson-Catenacci.

:drool:
Imagine if they all hit close to their ceilings what that line would be like in it's prime? Would be an absolute nightmare for team to play against. Grit, leadership, some skill, speed...

Catenacci seemed like he did well in his limited action in the regular season. Would be nice to see him get some ice time in the playoffs, but I'm not sure who would come out for him.

Good move. With the way the forwards played yesterday (particularly in the second), they should have won that game. A more solid goaltending performance should go along way toward making that happen.

Any other changes? I'd like to see one of the young guys inserted for a bit more speed.

Good for him. Hopefully he'll do better than Leggio did in game 1.

It's a development team. No question Hackett must start. He's in the Sabres future, not Leggio

More about the fact that Leggio was terrible yesterday and Hackett's more likely to help them win today than anything beyond that. If what you state was the case, then they'd sit Matt Ellis for Justin Kea. A development team has to win in order to help people develop. Can't do that if you hitch your horse to every "future" Sabres player in lieu of vets.

Not a chance. If Leggio played well yesterday he'd be in today. He didn't. So Hackett is in.
