It sure sounds like most of you in here expects him to play like a demi god 82 games a season.

A goal going top shelf can be tricky even if it isn't redirected and even if it isn't screened. And if it is, on a stick of one of your own players, well... that's tricky. The puck certainly won't behave like you would expect it to. When it goes top shelf, it's really hard to get the glove/blocker up there.

You seem to forget that the first reaction from a goalie is where the shot seems to be going, looking at the shooter. If it is redirected, even early, it means the first move you made to anticipate the shot is way off.

To some of you, it sounds like he let in the softest goal ever.

My point is not that Henrik is a poor goaltender, that would simply be silly. Henrik is now and will continue to be a top 10 goaltender in all of hockey. However he looks tired and uncomfortable. If he can't play a consistent game then he needs to be given a break. By no means am I saying he should be removed from his regular starting goaltender position, however every goaltender needs a break once in a while. (Except Marty, as it seems)

Would have been nice to score a goal on that shorthanded break when Martin's stick broke, but Shanahan and Betts were obviously tired. Good period anyway.

The term "demigod", meaning "half-god," is a modern distinction, often misapplied in Greek mythology. "Demigod" is meant to identify a person whose one parent was a god and whose other parent was human, such as the heroes of Greek mythology. The biblical Nephilim, descendants of fallen angels and mortal women, could be considered demigods. Nineteenth-century popularizers of classical mythology like Thomas Bulfinch used the term "demigod" freely, and its definition has passed into popular dictionaries [1]. For the Greek concept, see Hero.
Part of the dual nature of Greek heroes, that gave rise to the "demigod" conception of them, a repeated theme in the story of their birth, is a double paternity: one father is a "king" of some kind, and another is a god. The hero's mother manages to lie with king and god in the same night (mother of Theseus) or to be visited secretly by the god (DanaŽ, mother of Perseus), and the seed of the two fathers is mixed in her womb (not a modern biological possibility, but one that was firmly established in Antiquity). Thus the heroes have liminal qualities that enable them to have great strength, to cross the threshold between the worlds of the living and the dead yet return safely, and to mediate long after their death between human and divine. (Ruck and Staples 1984, part 3; Kerenyi 1959).
Zeus became the father of many heroes as a result of his dalliances, and after death they were accorded honors, especially among those Greeks who claimed to be their descendants and, through them, to have claims on the protection and patronage of a god. The veneration of heroes was part of chthonic rites in the religion of Greece. An exception was Heracles, who was accepted in the passage of time among the Twelve Olympians. Such "demigods" were usually mortal, but were pre-eminent among humans, and some had unusual powers.
Structurally, mythic narratives of such heroic figures falls into the genre of Romance, as Northrop Frye defined and described it. Alexander the Great encouraged the mythmakers in his retinue to spread the legend of his "secret" Olympian paternity. His legend survived the end of Antiquity; a cycle of medieval romances developed around his legend.
In the list of demigods there are figures ranging from deified historic figures, to culture-heroes and city founders, to minor primeval chthonic deities. This illustrates the limitations of "demigod" applied to Greek mythology, and to an extent elsewhere.


goodnight ill be here all week.

Avery looks good, but...

should he be playing on the PP over Prucha, who had more goals in less minutes last season than Shanahan? I know Sean is the flavor of the day and Renney wants to get him involved, but Prucha has to be sitting and saying ***....

Also, Rachunek>Rozsival on the PP Point.

Avery doing his job thus far. He's the new Barny in my opinion.

Probably going to replace BigE in my avatar soon.

Would you happen...

to be a D&D freak, HBNYC?

And to that end, Pan was half goat and half man, kind of like the centaur on the SNL skit with Chistopher Walken.
