I do feel bad for Gus, but he came into a very tough situation. He's annointed as the best goalie outside of the NHL, has heart problems, his mother dies, and on top of that people expect him to carry a pretty terribad Leafs team (last season and the season before) on his shoulders. The guy just looks completely deflated now, and I wish him well wherever he lands. But he's done here.
Gus sucks. Get over it. At least there was a point in the season where the team was decent. Gus has never been anything but an embarrassment.
You do realize this entire team is brutal??? You do right? Are you watching the same game? What do we have like 5 shots now? Gus played bad. But put Henrik Lundqvist, Ryan Miller, etc. in net for the Leafs this season or for the past few years and this team would still be fighting for a playoff position. The team blows from top to bottom. I get sick and tired of all the 'fans' chirping at the goalies when the entire team (forwards and defense) have played so brutal for most of the season. I'm not suggesting that either Reimer or Gus have played well, they both are young and struggling. But let's spread the blame, there is plenty of it to go around.
Yeah I think Gus will be gone this summer...he has been good in spurts but his game is just too on/off.
Never in my life have I seen a professional athlete, show so much emotion, on a regular basis
You can tell he has alot of passion, and competitiveness, a heck of alot more then most of the guys playing in front of him. I hope he gets picked up by a team who can play defense, like Phoenix, because I think he really does offer more than we've seen.
He was the Leafs' leading scorer in the 1963–64, 1966–67 and 1969–70 seasons, and the team's top goal scorer in 1970–71 and 1972–73. Keon was considered one of the fastest skaters in the NHL, and one of the best defensive forwards of his era. He would usually play against the opposing team's top centre, and developed a reputation for neutralizing some of the league's top scorers. In 1970–71, he scored eight shorthanded goals, setting an NHL record.
