will you shut up? we don't need a "Dan Ellis' stats" thread everytime there is a Bulldogs game. And that is obviously all you are interested in defending.
In case you haven't noticed, this is a Habs board, so we are obviously going to be pro-Habs prospects to the detriment of others. Go back to a pro-Texas board will you?
Obviously you didnt read what I was responding to. I only posted that in response to someone saying that while they dont score for Ellis, they dont score for Danis either. I was just showing how they are wrong.
Chaos, I seriously think you should find a new home (on your own board)
In all honesty i can't understand how you have NOT been banned yet for trolling. You come here and start so much bad blood that your being here is not a benefit to anyone.
Have you ever watched Ellis at all? I attended the first game of the season where Ellis played ok, there was nothing special there. He covers the lower part of the net decent enough, he has a inability to stop shots that are aimed in the 5-hole and his coverage of the top portion of the net is terrible to say the least.
When goalies play as unattentive as Ellis has been your team loses confidence. Now i'm definatly not putting all the blaim Ellis's 0-6 record has on Ellis our boys definatly need to start putting the puck on the net and stop letting so many shots get threw to our poor riddled goal tenders. However you should be THANKFUL that so many shots are getting tossed at your tender as it helps him develop - not that I expect to see him develop into anything but a AHLer if he has no fire or determination to at least TRY to stop some of the pucks that get shot at him.
How am I starting any bad blood? Im simply defending someone who you people are just trashing all the time. Yes, I've watched Ellis, and he's obviously not off to the start I had hoped. But the only way for him to get out of it is to play through it. Goalies go through bad stretches all the time. His just happens to be right at the start of the season.
Back to back games where Ellis gets zero offensive support. Gonna have to start pitching 0-0 shutouts.
Chaos, I don't think anyone has the right to ask you to stay away from this board, so kindly ignore them and post away...
Unfortunately, a lot of people here are trying to deflect criticism of Habs prospects and place all blame squarely on the goaltender, its pretty convenient...
Realistically speaking, this is a team that is poor in all aspects, they come up with offense in sporadic bursts, and most night are atrocious defensively, waking up only when the game is out of hand..
Someone mentioned its tough when you're 2-0 down....if that the case, WAKE UP FOR THE GAME and don't get outshot 12-5 in the 1st period...
