No, I'm not. He saved us occasionally, but his poor reaction on second opportunities cost us games as well. Playing injured wasn't a smart choice either, so the bad plays evens out the good ones, so mediocre he was.

Good 1vs1 by mikelis redlihs also,damnit why couldn`t he scored like this in WC ? :/
Redlihs didn't have much luck this WC, but he also played more as a set-up guy. He did that extremely well in the first 4-5 matches before he was out of gas in the tank.

Goddmanit if there wouldnt be so much second chances given up by guys like Cibuslkis and Lavins than there would be no problems.

I have to agree,but its not like he lacks the ability to score as this video clearly shows.

True, but most of those second chance goals were softies either way. He could of saved those, if he bothered to pick himself up more quickly. Acting miserable and helpless after the fact doesn't make me feel sorry for him.

You can`t blame goalie when defence play like crap.

I would actually think that Masalskijs was average - which is the step up from mediocre (but that you expected more from him). Almost no matter how good a goalkeeper if your defence are not on their toes goalies will have problems (super goalies on a hot streak might hold everything, but that happens very rarely).
Frederik Andersen was the same for Denmark - not playing as well as expected but didn't get a lot of help from the defence either...

Of course we can. Our collective defense were poor and so occasionally was Masalskis.

Still, although our defense wasn't stellar, often Masalskis should of done better. Period.

As a former lacrosse player i think it's funny how the amount of lacrosse goals in hockey have skyrocketed lately! I saw also a latvian one in the compilation.

Granlund's is the most famous....

But this fairly unknown one from canadian Yannick Dubé is pretty neat: (0.23)

If defence didn`t consist of guys like lavins,sotnieks,masalskis would have a lot less problems.

About Masalskis:
Well as you said ozo if he playing injured that would effect his reaction time and his abillity to move into extreme positions....and account why he played worse than expected of him.
The question is then would Jucers or Mustokovs have done better? It's a decision that Nolan took.......hard to know?

Jesus, this is my last post on this subject. Masalskis should of made more saves poor defense or not. There will never be a game where opponents won't get a few second chances, and we will never win those games if our goalie will be so slow on recovering from first chances.

probably,anyway that kind of goal takes skill and cool which Indrasis also demonstrated in wc,good nolan discovered him,its good to know that nolan will be leading our team next year aswell so he can pull out more of these "unpolished gems".

There were some qustions but everyone felt (before games like norway and denmark) Jucers is bit too shaky.

It seems nobody was ready to try the wild card from the danish league---Mustukovs (guess Latvian's didn't feel that sounded very awesome).

Mustukovs was absolutley out of the question unless both Jucers and Masalkis got injured.

Mustokovs has to get into swedish elitserien if he wants to be taken seriously back here in latvia.
