Amazing how quickly the attitude towards Andy has turned.

Hope the team in front of him shows up tonight.

I'm more worried about the train wreck team defence.

Right? If this doesn't improve, it's not going to matter who starts in net.

It is not that I don't like him, it is just that his 0-3-0 with a .860 save percentage against the bruins as of recently is not something that we should be happy about.

Lehner has played behind the same defence, but he has put up better numbers than Anderson.

Good for him. I have nothing against Lehner. I simply think our goaltending is the least of our issues.

We cannot keep expecting our goalies to bail us out of games and stop 40-50 shots a night.

This is precisely why Anderson shouldn't start.

Because if we lose, idiots will blame him for it.

If it's an idiotic opinion, sure.

If the team were playing well and Andy was single-handedly crapping the bed, great.

He didn't play great against Philly, but the team in front of him played worse.

Keep in mind, I want Lehner to start. But not because Andy isn't capable of putting up a good performance.

Get real, team sucked big time but Andy sucked as much as them, I don't give a **** if he makes a nice save once it's 2-0 or 4-0, I want him to keep us in the game, he didn't, he was bad, he let 2 ****ing wrap arounds and a weak slapper from the far high slot (Methot sucked there too), and seriously, if you are a coach, why would you throw Andy to the wolves like that when the other G is hot as fire right now? makes absolutely no sense

Like I said, I agree that it's a dumb decision.

But this Anderson = Automatic Loss is pretty silly IMO.

Andy stands on his head, we lose 1-0, and you'll still find people in here saying they should have started Lehner.

With the way the team has been playing in its own end, allowing 1 goal against seems like a pipe dream though.

Andy has kept us in games that we shouldn't be in FAR more often than he's been single-handedly responsible for losing a game.

It's sad that we rely so much on our goalies to keep us in games when we're playing like ***** that once they don't keep us in a game... they're suddenly at fault for losses.

MacLean, in choosing Anderson, given Lehner's performance last week, Anderson's performance this week, and Lehner's historical play against the Bruins, has put him in the most pressure-packed situation I can think of.

I guess we'll find out how he responds.

There must be some logic that Paul sees that I'm missing.

Probably to show that he has faith in Andy, even after a bad game and that he's done enough to deserve a chance.

I honestly don't know, but I'm not going to sit here and pretend I know better than he does.

We'll see how it goes, I guess. If the team plays like they played against Philly, it's not going to matter anyway.

I'm certainly not going to blame him for a loss before a minute of the game is played.

Clearly this is what has been killing the Senators all season.

If it doesn't improve I wonder if Murray is going to make a desperation save to bring in a legit top 4 vet.

Andy has been really average this year to be honest. Last year he was all-world for 20 games, this year not so much. And this team and its crappy defence can't afford average in nets. They need .930ish goaltending, .925 tops or they're sunk. The only game Andy was "good" in was the Red Wings rout and the team was so pumped and on fire that he was almost a passenger after the first.

It isn't an automatic loss but...but I'd rather play Lehner tonight due to consistency. Give Andy another soft start versus Columbus or Philly (think we play them again next week no?) and get him back into his groove. We're chasing the Bruins in the standings so we need these two points. CLB and PHI are "far" enough behind we can use the game as a training ground if we need to.

So would virtually everyone.

Doesn't change the fact that this team is terrible in its own end.

Maybe this is a bizarre tactic to teach the team not to rely on stellar goaltending. I don't know.

He's right. People are on the Lehner bandwagon and will take shots at Andy any chance they can.

Like he said, Andy didn't play great against Philly, but the team in front of him was much much worse.

You don't think the two things might be related?

Neither Lehner or Anderson should have any bit of faith in the team in front of them right now. None.

LAST YEAR, sure, this year, I am not so sure... I haven't missed a game and I think his level of play isn't anywhere near where he was last year, I know it's hard to keep last year's pace because he was crazy good, but I think with the exception of one or 2 games, he struggled, gave up bad goals, always give the 1st goal ect..

Andy was given a soft start against Philly already. Look how the team performed.
