Fehr - Goal of the season?

Seen it from some other angles and it is just simply beautiful. I thought Datsyuk's was goal of the year but not now especially considering the timing in OT and against a top opponent in the B's.

So far I don't think I've seen a better goal. That goal was Ovi-esque.

Quite clearly Eric Fehr ALWAYS had 1st round talent but was NEVER 100% healthy. Now look at him? Like i said it's like we just got a new draft player.

That was a real beauty. Bobby Orr took notice.

Too bad it's wasted on an empty season.


Edit: freaking sick though. Not sure he realized he pushed it past the d on his right, but beauty when falling. Dude has always been lethal when quick.

Yes. Certainly for the Caps, possibly in the whole league.

Impressive how Fehrsie has the puck in his skates, and then almost pushes it far side on the hapless bell still ringing G.

Also impressive how he stretches himself Fantastic 4 Reed Richards elasto-man thin in order to squeeze between the two D.

In all seriousness, throughout this season, the guy has been using his frame in a way that I'd never seen from him previously. His work along the boards and in tight areas has been so much stronger than it used to be - which is probably why Oates has been using him on D-zone face-offs and the PK.

Fehr does use his body well. Somewhat subtle things at first glance but when you see him do it over and over, you start to appreciate it.

It seems like something that could be taught, but it may just be an innate thing. Some guys can use their body to shield the puck etc, others never even try. Its like a foreign concept.

He uses his jumbo twig well too.

He is still hurting for TOI but I have a feeling Oates addresses that soon.

The effort from Hamilton on the play was pretty weak sauce too, very Shultz-esque.



Imagine if the 4th we got from Peg for Fehr when we sent him packing actually becomes a player. The genius that is GMGM will be evident for all to see and worship

Dave,

If ever there was a 'right place at the right time' goal, that's it.

Fair got just enough mustard on that shot to blow it by him... great effort.

What I really liked is how we didn't give up, and kept chipping away, and eventually won.

The only bummer is that Boston came away with a point.

Wow, does NBC not allow footage of goals to be posted on youtube now? I'm looking for that goal Fehr scored against the Penguins in 2010 and all I can find is really ****** videos from people in the crowd.

I think its high time to get Fehr into the slot on the PP. PP1.

Brouwer has been great, a leader on and off the ice but I don't see any drop off getting Fehr some one timers.

I'd like to see Fehr up on the first with Ribiero and Ovi. It wont happen because Oates likes to see people play their strong wing and Ovi and Fehr are both righties, but I think he could add the skill and fight to that line and make it be pretty strong.
