It's just so ****ing irritating how the back-up gets all the excuses and the guy who literally dragged this team to the conference finals gets bashed non-stop.
I'm not so sure I agree with that. From my limited time on this board it's easy to see there is 2 camps. We see from a different perspective when our guy is in the pipes. It's been like that forever way before the internet.
We don't have a clear cut starter right now.
Marty had a GREAT ending for sure last year. He STOLE the Habs series.
Nitty wet the bed tonight, we needed help in the 1st, and he just could not stem the tide of our failed defence.
I guess whats so disapointing is where is that guy?

Ummmmm I thought Marty was a backup before he got here.....
Amazing how different it would be if Downie wasn't sent down and a NHL-debut wasn't being made on the first line without earning it...
downie should be in, but nodl looks fine. i think the flyers were pretty set on richards/hartnell/lupul, so nodl is the only logical choice for that "first" line. i don't want asham there, obviously, and i think the chemistry between carter and upshall is obvious
