I've got him on three teams too. I actually got called crazy when I took him in the third round. If he's still uninjured by November, I think I'll have to post a comment to the league along the lines of "Who's crazy now, biyatch?"

You think he'll only have a shot at the Vezina if he wins 4 stat categories out of 4?
I'd kinda think at that point nobody else would have a snowballs chance in hell of getting even a sniff of the Vezina.

He has been in the past, so why wouldn't he be now? In my opinion Kari has already shown that he is a great playoff performer and a big game goalie.

I'm already using the "who's crazy now, biyatch" line. A friend of mine was telling me before the season started how we wouldn't go anywhere unless we gave up one of our forwards for a #1 goalie, I explained a healthy Kari is a star. He didn't believe me but drafted him anyway. Lehts has singlehandedly given him an early 20 point lead in our league.

Of course I turned down a trade of tanguay for Kari so I'm the crazy one.

I'd be happy to see ANY goalie but Kipper (except a swede of course) win the Vezina

And if it was Lehtonen I'd be extra hyped ^^

Nah, Conn Smyth for Kovalchuk. We have to share within a team lol




I have a feeling Lehtonen will get his 3rd shutout friday against Caroline and for BH to start him on saturday also.

I'm a Finn, I know what he's feeling, but that doesn't mean that I won't wish success to him. He's still a Finn. Of course, if I can choose success between him and another Finn, then I choose the other one. Before that happens, I will keep rooting for him.

Can someone give me some sort of report on Kari's last game? He had been playing really great for the past games and now lets in 5 goals and I'm just wondering how he actually played. Stats don't always tell you anything.

He didn't have the best of games, IMO. But that goes for the entire Thrashers team, they clearly didn't have their legs. I thought that three of the five goals were partly his fault.

The first goal from Rolston, a slapper from the outside of the circle - chalk that up to not seeing his rocket on a regular basis. Any Western goalie would be hugging the near post like crazy, but Kari was cheating towards the centering pass a little bit.

The two goals by Parrish, for some reason he was basically shooting at a yawning net - first right from the slot, and then on the rush. The one from the slot was kind of a weird bounce, as Bouchard fenned on a pass, and it bounced off of the D's skate straight to Parrish. But on both of those goals, Kari was in no-man's land. I think he overcommited to the shooter in both cases, and couldn't get across in time. Given that he doesn't ever face the Wild, I think there was definitely a lack of tape watching - overcommiting himself to the pass when a shooter had the puck, and then (twice) overcommiting to the shot when passers Bouchard and Demitra had the puck.

Hope that helps.

Nice catch with the overcommitment. Looking at the replay there was definitely some in the 2nd goal (which might have been impossible to stop anyway) and the first he could have stopped on a perfect day, but in the 3rd it looked to me like Lehtonen simply played the shooter and let the defense handle the pass (there were actually two guys trying to intercept it, but both of them failed). Might have been a bad decision regardless, but it looked intentional IMO. The 4th goal was impossible to stop and the 5th difficult at the very least.

Simply based on the NHL.com highlights, I wouldn't call that a bad showing by Lehtonen. He made several good saves throughout the game.
