DP has a bad habit of closing his eyes on shots. Watch closely on an HD feed in slow motion. Something that should have been corrected a loooong time ago as a goalie.
Any chance we see Montoya come out in the second period? This is getting old fast.
I'd be surprised if that happened.
Besides for health issues, I can't remember the last time Rick was pulled or replaced the goalie. It seems to me that when it's Ricks turn to play, Rick plays no matter what. When it's Ricks turn to sit, Rick sits no matter what.
I don't agree with that plan, however if that's what they're gonna do, then they really should have Rick in the press box on games he doesn't start.
now im not trying to defend DP here because that was a bad goal to give up, but how about we get on the team about their real problem....scoring
This. But i can def see a real confidence problem with this team when DP is in net. They seem to sit back more. I cringe everytime a shot is taken at DP. If we all feel it im sure the team does as well. That can def affect a teams Offense when your more worried about even giving up a shot on net
was that an un-deflected, un-screened shot from ALMOST THE BLUELINE, which dipietro let in?
Im ****ing so tired of defending the fact that DP sucks, and needs to be removed from this team..WATCH THE ****ING GAMES people. This isnt ****ing rocket science. HE SUCKS.
In fact, this is going to amp up my DP hatred even more. Not him directly, rather the team, for continuing to put a SUB PAR GOALIE ON THE ICE WHEN THEY HAVE BETTER OPTIONS.
Does anyone REALLY want to see DP starting more games?
Don't say yes because we are stuck with his contract, rather I would rather hear from the people who would want him in the game, because they really think we have a better chance of winning with him, compared to any other Isles goalie in net.
You really don't see the main problem with this team because of your hate for one player. You're the same guy who wanted to see DP knocked out of a game and for the whole year the last time he played.
I can't take you serious after absurd comments like that.
I also can't take you serious when you refuse to realize when a team doesn't score it doesn't freaking matter who is in goal.
If you recall, the last game your man crush Al played in, he got blasted too. But people aren't ready to tar and feather him for any mistake. You'd rather use DP as a scapegoat.
Get over yourself and find a new team to root for.
No goalie is going to be perfect every freaking game. Give the guy a break.
