If you're going to be outclassed regularly you might as well have youngsters like Eakin, Kundratek and others from a sell-off in the lineup. I don't think those two would be much worse than Knuble & Wideman at the moment. Same goes for Holtby/Vokoun lately. If they are significantly worse...well...who cares. Call up some of the AAAA talent to be exposed instead.
I agree, get these guys experience. They will benefit from it next year.
I dont agree. Neuvy has been left out to dry a lot and many of the goals I've been seeing on him have not been entirely his fault.
He is also not getting a good chance. He seemed to be the kind of goalie that needs playing time, not the guy that can play one in fifteen games or come off the bench and give a strong showing. He's proven he can play when given support and the opportunity. Neither ****** coach this year has given him the opportunity while they just keep going back to Vokoun even when he's been ****.
Vokoun is constantly out of position and looks completely befuddled when goals are scored against him. Look at tonight. First goal was like he wasnt even ready. Second goal he looked completely surprised when Wideman got beat and on the third he was like a deer in the headlights.
They both suck. But Neuvirth has sucked all year and the numbers prove it. He's consistently been over 3 with his GAA and his save % has been awful. Vokoun has had his bad moments but overall he's been a lot better than Neuvirth. Again the stats back this up.
Neuvirth was an arrogant punk in Hershey and he's been in a snit since Vokoun was named #1. I don't buy that nonsense about he's the type of goalie who needs to play. He's the backup. If he can't perform when he does start, then he's no use to this team.
Doesn't matter anyway, this whole franchise is a bunch of underachieving, lazy losers.
