Ah, thanks Conks, for your admirable fill-in duty.

Guess this answers our question about whether the roster freeze affects call-ups and send-downs.

My vote would be to start him.

Freddy has just been too inconsistant of late. Fabulous Perfromance, Letdown, Fabulous Performance, Letdown. Who knows which Freddy will come tonight.

Freddy is coming off like 7 games in a row or something with nothing more then a periods rest. With basically only one day in between each game. His last outting he let in 4, although not his fault. I say play Pas.

Agreed. While not every goal can really be attributed to Norrena, he HAS let 18 goals by in the past 4 games. On top of that, he's rarely had more than a day rest(if at all) in the past couple weeks. Leclaire needs to play. Let him play the next few, then after New Year's, get into that regular rotation they were hoping to get in before Pascal was injured.

Norrena has got to be gassed. If he is ready, put Pasi in and give Dr. No some time to recover. Aside from that, who better than the Grinch to backstop the last couple of games before Christmas?

Pascal only practiced for 10 minutes at about 50% on Tuesday. I would be surprised to see him be ready to go on Friday.

Is it possible that since Conklin was an emergency call-up (and thus not required to pass through waviers) he had to go back down today?

You sure? I believe I heard on Wednesday that, either Wednesday morning or Tuesday afternoon he practiced pretty hard with the team and had skated a lot and was feeling a lot better. I know for a fact that the day after the injury he got up and it was feeling a lot better, but they just wanted him to stay off of it for a few days without getting back out on the ice, especially considering Norrena was still hot at the time. That was well over a week ago.

Im not 100% sure...would have to waste time and look it up...but I think if its an emergency callup they can go up/down durring the freeze.

Pascal will start Friday.....healed or not...

Norrena, as said above, has given up 18 goals in four games. Now I know we are not a great defensive team but not all of those goals were our teams fault.... He has proved he can play in the NHL, which appears to be enough for him, now it's time to get our real NHL goalie back in net....

I don't know where you get the impression he's satisfied with his play because he seems to me like he is anything but.

You're obviously not watching the same team we've been watching

The team that got him those shutouts and a 97% save ratio is the same that has gone 1-2-1 in the last four games..... can't blame the whole team for everything. No goalie that gives up over four goals a night for four games in a row lasts long in the NHL......

Four is the key it appears....

Looking at Leclaire's stats this season, he also has had a 7 game streak giving up 28 goals. I don't see that much difference him being better than Norrena. Turning it other way around, I don't see a 5 game, while 3 GA's streak in Leclaire's stats what I see in Norrena's...

what about the offense, robert? can we blame them? preventing goals helps you win games, but you cannot ever win if you don't score more.. or at all.

i will remember your post when leclaire lets in as many goals.. then ask you where our real NHL goalie is.

i'm glad leclaire is healed up, but i still would have liked to have seen conklin start once.

Have you been watching the games, Robert? The team that "showed up" (and I mean this only in the sense that they were literally in the building, on the ice) on Wednesday is not the team that was playing in Edmonton and Colorado. Not even remotely close. Had LeGrinch been in goal, unfortunately I think he would have suffered the same fate. On the few shifts they put out some effort and didn't allow the fowards to walk right in on Freddy, our D was crowding the lanes but not blocking the shots.

We lost a couple. Guess what? We are going to lose games. Sorry to burst anyone's fantasy world, but we are still going to lose games over the course of the season. Some will be ugly.

The question now is, how do we respond after an ugly loss? That is what's important.

Let's give this post three cheers. I agree 105% with what was said, we will lose games and some will be ugly but let's get on with it.

I was very pleased to be on your side regarding Hartigan, but I have to diverge with you here - Conklin looked sooooo shaky against Chicago! He didn't really have a chance to make many saves, but he was a heart-in-the-throat adventure every time he left his crease. My only fear is that Pasi is not fully healthy and he'll reinjure the knee by coming back too soon. Guess I'll have to put my faith in Hitch and the training staff on that one.

Agreed. While I feel great that Conklin is the team's third best goalie, I really don't want to ever have to see him play. Last I checked, he's 2-10 for Syracuse.

Freddy has given up a ton of goals, and whether or not you agree that any of them could be contributed to him, he's still getting pounded every night physically and mentally, and there's no reason we should be trying to burn out a great goalie. Get Leclaire in there. Give Norrena the holidays off, then he'll be good to go.

Let's argue about this tonight Bender 'cause I think Freddy No has a Freddy Yes problem from the blueline. Wouldn't you agree that our team seems to respond to great goaltending, or fold in the face of it lacking?? Seems so. Hitch has his work cut out for him on the "folding" issue.

We've seen only a small sample of Freddy's play, so maybe we can blame the D for the blow-outs, but seriously, how many blowouts are we going to grant Freddy? Seems like we're treating him with kid gloves.

Denis would have been crucified on this board for those performances.

Ah, not fair. The Crunch are 8-19. For whatever reason (and there is no rhyme to this - the Crunch have random spurts of goodness with ther other 75% being horrid) the team has played better in front of Popperle.

I'd agree the NHL is not where Conklin belongs, though. Can't say for sure where he should be but with a porn 'stache like that...
