Everybody keeps downing Heeter, but who else was available outside of Emery(break) or Mason(hurt)? Surely Chubak or Stolarz would have done just as poorly in my opinion

The concern though is placing Akeson in that position against other opponents' top lines.

I think Laughton would be better suited for that role.

Maybe use Akeson as a foil for Lecavalier on the 4th line.
His 'new' St. Louis?

I just hope there isn't too much change, as we have been playing well.

I doubt anyone thinks giving him the start in a meaningless game was a bad decision. It's just that this was his audition of sorts to be next year's backup, and he didn't look up to the challenge.

I finally finished watching the game, and had to come here to congratulate Heeter on the worst Flyer goalie performance I can remember in the past few years (yes, that includes Leighton's appearances)

Well, yeah, no one is criticizing Berube, it's Heeter's fault, that's the point

This is completely irrelevant to the argument, though. It's also pure speculation. But I do think it was good to test Heeter, it was a meaningless game anyway.

Bryz and Bob were both worse in the 9-8 game.
