I have a good feeling for this game, despite knowing how almost everything is against the Leafs... (Diving team versus a team with bad PK, recent lack of success against the Canuckleheads, back-to-back, etc).
I'm hoping they pull it off, imagine blowing them out? That would be great just about now...
Yep........he got set up to fail tonight i dont see howhe wins this. Why wouldnt you play your "number one" against the better team. You dont sit a guy for 12 days and start him versus the canucks.
Wow you don't have much faith in Gus do you?
I see it as a cannot fail opportunity for him. No one expects him to win, so a loss won't really count against him, unless he truly is the reason for it. On the other hand if he wins he is a hero and makes a strong case to get more starts.
btw lots of times you start the back up against a stronger team in a b2b....especial when they are not divisional rivals, and and the starter has had success against thew other team in the b2b.
So really.....you are just getting the Gus excuses going early. Give him a shot, maybe he will surprise you!
Call me dumb if you want but I'm actually glad that we're facing Luongo rather than Schneider. This will be an extremely tough game anyways but I like our chances more against a guy that sometimes tends to let some easy ones go.
If we don't win this I'm going to skin Glen Healy's scalp. And if I have to hear that god awful Henrik to Daniel orgasm that Hughson has he will never hear from his kids again AHHHHHHH I hate those two!
