Almost as bad as the EJ question in Dater's mailbag...

Does everyone really think Erik Johnson has been playing THAT well. He turns the puck over way too often, leaves his defensive position open and vulnerable a lot, and can't pass the puck to save his life! Where is all this EJ love coming from?

That Nadia is a complete idiot. Why some random blogger gets to contribute to yahoo is beyond me.

The mailbag always makes me sad. Such idiots out there that only read the DP and form their opinions based on whatever Dater feeds them. It's no wonder half of the Vas fanbase hates EJ, Stastny and Varly. This is why I get so upset about what gets published in the DP

So, because he stay deep in his net it means he's not that good? Guess Lundqvist sucks too. also because he's not a good role model it makes him a bad goalie and truly moronic fashion because he did snap on Byfuglien he's not crazy enough. Where the hell do they find these guys?

He did snap, swinging his stick after Bufyglien. What does she want, a full Bertuzzi?

I saw the clip only twice but I wouldn't say he snapped over that love tap.

Gred Whyshynski is running Puck Daddy. If there ever was a random blogger it's him.
Edit: I like him very much, though.

Sometimes I wonder if Dater makes up some of these questions so he can talk about what he wants to talk about. How is it even possible for someone to get that impression on EJ this year? Did they only watch the Toronto game where he was sick and shouldn't have played? Something Dater could have mentioned in his defense but didn't.

It is sad because garbage like that article perpetuates the stereotype that women don't know anything about sports. I'm embarrassed as a Coloradoan, an Avs fan and as a woman.

Wysh is ok but he's the complete epitome of the east coast shock jock type and I can handle that in only very small doses.

The shootout is no point even bringing up. But isn't Varlys glove very good? At least top 5-10 in the league I'd say?

Barkov is experiencing spells of dizziness after watching video of MacKinnon skate circles around the Leafs. He is not expected to play.

I just read that section again. She's saying he's supposed to hold it LOWER based on an article from 2011 yet missed the 500 times Roy said that Allaire moved his glove higher. Things like this make me so angry. I can handle option or whatever but when people are allowed to completely fabricate information and pass it off as facts just really, really pushes my buttons.

Anyway, finally listened to Roy on the Fan this morning. Didn't see it mentioned that he outlined his goalie plan until the break he said after the Florida games he was going to give Varly every game except one of the back to back NJ/NY games. But he said that after Tampa he'll discuss with Allaire if Varly needs more breaks.

Also, Roy describing "the hill" how they have to pass the conditioning test to get cleared to play I wonder if that was Wilson's hold up. Or maybe that's just a test for knee injuries.

Barkov has been downgraded to doubtful, but don't think this game is easier for you guys now, because he's being replaced by Scott Gomez (been a healthy scratch the last month)

Thanks for the update. I'm pretty nervous about this one, game was not pretty in Denver and I know the Panthers play hard.

And second, wasn't one of the things Allaire changed with Varly was putting his glove higher? I could've swore that was like, the first thing he did when he came in.


But yeah, Varly sucks

Wow one of the worst articles I've ever read. Completely missed points. Maybe as a Coloradoan she wants to make his angry and play out of his mind

About Panthers game, I hope we take a revange for a loss in Denver and bounce back after bad game against Leafs. Too bad Barkov won't play because I would like to see great showdown between great canadian kid Barkews and real Russian MacKinnov. I think the score would be 15:10 for us MacKinnov scores all 15 but we let in 10 with him on the ice because he is so bad defensively.

Varlamov hit Byfuglien pretty well actually. How did she miss that?

Varly is overrated because he couldn't stop Kessel on a breakaway

Worst article I've read in a while

It's a PG-13 site. Censoring will happen.
