I forgot what page it's on, but I mentioned him and Shattenkirk standing flat footed on the play.

Halak has bounced back and responded like a #1 should, I am impressed with him tonight. I was just worried that he would get rattled early and a talented offensive team like the Caps would be able to score a couple more, but Halak has played great so far.

He's clearly not the goaltender he was earlier this year, and I don't see any reason to hold that against him moving forward.

A lot of this discussion obviously hinges on subjective interpretations of what's going on. If you think that he's consistently given up soft goals over the last month, then I guess we'll just agree to disagree. No harm in that.
I don't think he played all that well against the Kings and could've saved 1 or 2 of the goals.

Worst. Broadcaster. Ever.

Pang's show is all about Pang. He never shuts up and constantly talks over the play-by-play.

Let's go Blues. Those were two perfect periods. (except for our power play and the weak goal allowed by Halak).

When the blues were on versus against the kings I was exited about the national broadcast and seeing the analysis by the versus crew but I found those broadcasters so annoying I was wishing it was back on fsn. Those broadcasters seemed so agenda based and sounded like they were forcing themselves to mention certain people and ignoring great games by others. Our broadcasters seem so much more relaxed and offer interesting info that is hard to find. Versus seemed so basic with standard stats. And I agree I love the goalie commentary by pang. I only played in goal once so I don't have a real understanding of the position but I think learn a lot from his analysis. They seen more like friends watching the game together rather than a news channel selling certain players.

I wouldn't complain about this too much. I personally like Panger but JK is one of the worst play by play guys.

I like that about him. I am watching the game I don't need to hear who is passing to whom.I'd rather them have an interesting conversation our focus on one thing most people may have missed.

Didn't mean to start a flame about Pang....


To me he is overboard sometimes and I want to smack him so I can get the play by play instead. His anecdotes are fine and it is colorful. I think we have been spoiled with our hockey announcers for years and years. Listening to other casters, I want to cry from the horrific commentary.

I shouldn't complain too much! It is okay... just sometimes annoying to me! So no offense to all of you Pang fans!


As for the Goalie debate... I am still not sold. He still has a lot of troubles using that trapper and keeping his stick down. Elliott dazzles me with those. I like the sharpness of Elliott over Halak personally. He seems hungry to win it and not so lackadaisical. If I feel that way looking at the pair of goalies, I can imagine what the team feels as well.

How do you feel about the Cardinals crew?

I just wish Halak was more fundamentally sound, especially with his stick.

When Panger came over, I felt we were privileged to get him. I still enjoy listening to him; he has a weird kind of chemistry with JK that I can't really explain. But please drop the telepanger, it annoys the hell outta me.

It just boggles my mind that Oshie ends up in so many trade proposals started by Blues fans.

Terrible idea, who will score our shootout goals with both Boyes and Oshie gone?

With the way he has responded to Hitchcock, no way is he traded. I think people were worried if the would mesh together, but it is clear they work together and Oshie will get the contract he wants in the offseason.

Great defensive play by Arnott there. Watched his man the whole way and stayed in perfect position.
