Good news is that b/c we are behind Hunter will probably loosen the trap and let us attack which is what we are good at.

Agreed. Mismanagement is way further up there. Their skill development at every position blows.

Keep on crusading though. Maybe your efforts will inspire Neuvirth to hit the elusive .910 plateau.
My point is, this season is not any of the goaltenders fault. We beat the worst team in the east in the shootout, when they were playing Peter freaking Budaj.
Neuvirth saved that game.

Im not saying he's a good or great goalie. All im saying is, he doesn't nearly deserve all the **** he gets on here. Neither does Vokoun.

This team sucks. Stop blaming the goalies and just accept it.

It's not any singe player's fault. Is Neuvirth partially to blame? Abso-****ing-lutely.

The 15th ranked starter in the NHL has a save percentage of .920.

If the Caps goalies played up to that average this season, we would have allowed 191 goals. Instead, we've given up 219. 28 fewer goals allowed would equal a bunch more wins. We'd be comfortably in first in the SE.

Lots of blame to go around, but the goalies get some of it.

Neuvirth's fault.

Are you on crack? Our Save % is better than 4 current playoff teams. Chicago, Pitt, Phil, and NJD. 18th overall. We've given up the 9th most goals.

We are tied for 12th in goals, with one of the worst PP minutes for in the league. If we were average in PP's for, we'd be top 10 in Scoring.

Admit you are wrong, and love Neuvirth. Admit it, will make you feel better

Well people seem to have a problem with the inconsistency in goal for us, but that applies to almost all areas of our game. We rarely put together a full 60 and thats what kills us. We know we have the talent, we just don't utilize it. Some fault does lie on the players but I think it is more on management.

Those stats are pretty and all, but have you watched this team recently?
Awful hockey. And it doesn't help that goalies like Johan Hedberg, Dwayne Roloson, and Peter Budaj can own us.

Also, we have a defense that lets the Canadiens get 41 shots on us.

Any goalie behind a defense that bad doesn't nearly deserve the flak he gets. All of our D has been awful/inconsistent (Alzner to a much less extent)

In addition to Noovy, I'd say having Keith Aucoin on your active roster is a problem as well.

Green looks so frustrated since that ridiculous save, he needs to calm down.
