I'm getting flashbacks or the Elliott/LeClaire days... Being scared every time the opposition takes a shot on net.

Chocolate...it's about that time my friend. After witnessing what we've seen tonight from Andy, you need to make the call that you've dreaded having to make. Yup, it's time for you and your buddies Cujomi, Nac Mac, Sidorkowitz and the rest of the Anderson apologists to make the phone call to Maclean and let him that you and the fellas over at HF Boards can't keep the charade going on anymore and that you can't keep defending Andy anymore..its embarrassing now and making you look bad and effecting your "street cred". You need to let him know that your taking your head out of the sand finally as Andy is beyond defending anymore.

You and the rest of the crew and your loyalty for what Andy has done past few years has been admirable. But I think even you are ready to say after tonight it's time for Andy to sit for a bit and see how the kid does. Who knows maybe during this time Andy will get his confidence back which I'm sure even you will admit is clearly shot and so it could be a good thing to release the Lehner.

Who knows if it will work or not but trotting him out day after day sure the heck aint working. Enough is enough already. So hold your nose and make the call to Maclean...its Lehner time for awhile.

Hey now! I resent not being on that list!

Also, just to set the record straight, you are Robin Lehner, right?

Never should have let the Gerber/Emery tandem go. They had a 100% success rate at getting to the cup finals when together for a full season.

My bad NP Harris...I'm sure Chocolate has plenty of room on the "Anderson is still Vezina to me no matter what Maximus or any of the Lehner ball washers say" bandwagon....no worries...

And no, I'm not Robin Lehner nor his agent though that wouldn't be a bad gig as his bargaining power is getting better and better as the season rolls on.

Lehner has had ONE bad game (really bad game I might add) whereas Anderson has been awful in almost every game he has played this season.

Lehner has a .939SV% and a 2.37GAA. Please explain to me why he should be lumped in with Anderson, a goaltender with a 3.26GAA and a .907SV% who lets in 2 early goals nearly every game he starts.

We have only one goaltending option right now, and he's not the guy currently manning the net.

So, you want to burn out Lehner in a nothing year and wipe out his confidence because.....?

That comet next year going to wipe out the west coast and half the eastern cities to give the Sens a chance at the post season or something?

While we're at it, why not bring up Ceci and put him on the first pairing? Development is overrated.

We have to keep our eyes on the ultimate prize. Not short-term thinking.

Hale, we need to get our #'s right my friend. I wish you were right and it's probably a missprint on your part but Andy has a .904 Save % before this evening which depending upon what happens in the 3rd could possibly drop under .900.

So yeah, we have a kid who has a .940 save% and like you said, has had only one bad period the whole season and yet we should still continue with the status quo because of....(fill in the blank).?

Makes no sense anymore. Give Lehner the keys to the car for a bit and we'll see how he does. I'm betting he'll continue to do fantastic which likely would piss off some of the Andy excuse makers in here but too damn bad. You want to win hockey games...you play Lehner. You want to lose hockey games....keep the status quo and keep Andy as #1.

So have you officially converted from being a Rangers fan to a Sens fan Maximus? I recall seeing you around back in 2012 during the Sens/Rags series. You only seem to appear here to talk about Lehner, which is odd given your great enthusiasm for the team.

Fan of both actually Neil. Guess you missed post as to why but wife is from Montreal and brother in law lives in Orleans outsides of Ottawa. So huge Ranger fan for many years, love hockey, played it back in the day here in the States for many years. Go to Ottawa 4-5 times a year for past 9 years or so and so yeah. Live near Philly now for past 6 years and so your Sens grew on me...what can I tell ya. Yes participating in fantasy hockey past 14 years and owning plenty of Sens including Lehner and Andy this year helps as well but I happen to like Sens as my 2nd team well behind my Rangers but I happen to like your boys. Hope I'm allowed. And if not, let me know who I need to talk to to file my application...cheers

What was that Andy's 7th game of giving up 4+ goals...Lehner should have never been sat after his star of the week. It's beginning to get ridiculous.

I think Maclean thinks that Andy will come back to his form of last year.
Maybe he has bet on that a bit too long.
