I disagree. this the one thing the NHL does better then the other sports. The NBA is toying with the idea of having an outdoor game or something to mimick the out door games. The NHL has found a showcase that replaces the luster all star games used to hold.

First, GAA is more of a teamstat than an individual one.
You judge goaltender by their SV%.

Second, Ray Emery played 21 games, Steve Mason played 20 games. Those are backup numbers and it's a lot harder to perform on a good level for 40, 50 maybe even 60 games.

Third, Ray Emery played behind what was arguably the best D in the NHL. Steve Mason played behind a D that supported the Vezina Trophy winner and didn't look doing so. His stats are greatly inflated by playing 6 more or less meaningless games with the Flyers in which he shined.

Combine that with the fact that both those guys will wear orange this season, it's pretty easy to get why people think we will allow 8 to 12 goals against on a nightly basis.
I believe we'll be fine.

Yeah I was trying to use the goals against column alone. I just looked up the stats. And they lead me to believe we should see an improvement. The funny this is emery only played in 4 less games than Anderson from the sens yet the gospel for him is a true start as well as bernier. By no means do I think we are a lock but I do believe we have to goalies whom should be able to play well in our attacking style due to their strengths. It was more a question of if I am being a blind homer or am I reading the stats correctly. I think it's hard to judge a shorten season because outliers have a great impact on the statistics.

Fluery in preseason action so far today, 1 shot, 1 goal allowed.

2-0 now. Although, he made progress, they have more than 2 shots on goal.

Well he said that after all those summers of not working that this year will be different. I guess the harder he works the better comedy for everyone

Penguins announce Tomas Vokoun needed a blood clot dissolved in his pelvis. He will be out indefinitely. Yeesh, hope he's ok.

Ristolanien is in the lineup for Buffalo against Toronto on the NHL Network for those interested.

Their goaltending situation just got a whole lot worse. No safety net for when Fleury falters.

I really wanted him ahead of Morin but hopefully the Flyers scouts were right to have it the other way.

Well add another team in the division with potential to have a nightmare goaltending situation this year along with us & the isles.

Yup. I wouldn't be surprised to see the Rangers take the division this year.

Tyler Enis just got warned for a jersey tuck, they showed a replay how it wasn't tucked originally but then tucked itself in when Enis was hunched over on a rush.

I swear the people who run this sport are incredibly dumb, I can't wait until a team gets a penalty at a crucial time for this just to show dumb they are.

The Leafs and Sabres just went 15 rounds in their shootout. The 30th shooter, Jay McClement, was the only guy to score.

Another guy from last years draft that many here were high on in Darnell Nurse is playing on the NHL Network right now. Apparently he has a good chance at cracking the Oilers roster according to the announcers.

And Paul Ranger adds a kick shot to the carnival side show. What a joke.

So, Vokoun has been sidelined indefinitely due to a blood clot. He has missed some time in the past due to another blood clot.

As scary as this is, can you imagine the Pens signing Bryz if they're not confident in Fleury holding down the fort?

I would welcome that. I would rather role with the rookie Eric Hartzell over Bryz if I was them.

Scary? I wouldn't be scared of that at all. I actually would love for that to happen. Fleury and Bryz tandem in the playoffs?

Scary for them, yeah. Every other team in the division would welcome that with open arms.

Yup. Kassian completely misses his check and proceeds to whip his stick around catching Gagner right in the jaw. So much for being in control of your stick at all times.
