Fernandez is a solid goalie. He is reliable enough. For those saying it is an automatic loss, get real. He is likely the best backup(that is how I am looking at it) goalie in the league.
There's no question he has the most proven career, but as far as backups go this year, (albeit in limited action) I could pick a few guys that have been better. Valiquette, Boucher, Nittyamaki, Sabourin just to name a couple (who have been better THIS year).
MF starting? Surprising...as I mentioned earlier, I didn't think he would start due to it being a divisional game. Happy for him nonetheless. Imagine if he starts riding a hot streak??? What a tandem that would be!
Even though I'm a huge TT fan, I'm rooting for Fernandez to kick some ass!
I like the Manny start here. Or they could've done it Thursday. Thomas isn't a work horse goalie, he'll be better off resting once every 3 or 4 games on a regimented schedule. Maybe that would take some of the inconsistency out of TT's game.
Do you have time to run out and buy some ear plugs? I can't stand listening to Jeanerette, even in highlights. I saw a profile of him this week and he has disgusting teeth to boot. Edwards could do a Polident commercial by comparison.
Just got in for an indoor soccer game in time for the game.
