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)
I've watched the entire season. Have you? I'm not going to pick and choose a few games to augment my arguments. Those are full season stats. We are what we are, and our goaltending is a HUGE reason that we are in this predicament. To think otherwise is simply wrong. I wont use gross hyperbole like some here, but the facts are the facts.
We are above average on offense, below average on defense and goaltending. Stop making excuses for Neuvirth, its silly.
