Marty Biron looked like Manny Ramirez on that play. Only I find Manny funny (in a very stupid way), Marty just pisses me off.

I'll take him though.

Nitty is weird, I know earlier I called for him to be the starter in a fit of rage, but looking clearly I realise he could not start for us, and that is a damn shame. If Nitty was consistent and had the stamina to be a starter he could be near the top of the league. He has alot less of a problem with lessing in weak goals, and it seems to me like he steals alot more saves than Marty Biron too. Anyone remember this one?

Both Niittymaki and Biron would make very nice back-up goalies.

So I was checking my ESPN fantasy hockey team, which ofcourse Richards is on, and in the news thing about him it had this quote.

Quote:
He fits the profile of an elite fantasy player. It's his fourth season -- the magic year for hockey players to explode -- and he's on pace for more than 90 points. He just turned 24 and he's a dominant penalty killer -- in four seasons, he has scored 72 goals including a whopping 19 while killing penalties. Yes, 26 percent of his goals have come shorthanded. One word -- insane.
I think its a pretty cool stat. Never really thought about how many of his goals are actually shorthanded...over a 1/4 of his goals is just crazy.

I'll take him though.
I can see a deal something like this:

To Philadelphia: JS Giguere, Mark Mitera
To Anaheim: James Van Riemsdyk, Martin Biron, Andreas Nodl.

Anaheim gets two young forwards and a pending UFA in Biron. Cash is freed up in the deal.

The Flyers get that true number one goalie they've been looking for and they get a solid, defensive defenseman prospect in Mitera. I think this could work.

That would have been cool. Then Randy Jones could have toured the continent giving seminars to NHL defensemen on how to hold the league's leading score pointless.

The puck was deflected twice, by two different players.

You need to deal with the fact that your favorite hockey team is going to lose games on a regular basis. You can be a good fan without obsessing with imaginary villains after a loss, you know.

The Biron hate is getting ridiculous. Look, he is not the second coming of Patrick Roy. But what he IS is a capable goalie who CAN take us to the finals. No question about it. He made a split second decision which turned into a flukey, strange goal. Yes, it was a backbreaker, but at least he has the balls to go and try to make that play. The first 4 goals of the game are seriously not on him. A shot through two screens and off the post and in, a double-tipped deflection on the PP, wide open one timer from the high slot labeled for the top corner, and a wide open top corner shot from the top of the crease (after a blatant noncall on the other end to boot). Sure, his glove hand could have been a bit stronger, but those are high-quality scoring areas. A perfect shot is going to go in damn near every time from those places. Does noone remember the first period, where Biron makes 4 or 5 great saves to keep them off the board? You dont win games by expecting your goalie to make 15 spectacular saves a night. It should be more like 4 or 5 total, with another 4 or 5 above average saves, and 10+ routine saves.

Agreed. Too bad we probably can't resign one next year.

I would run Niitty into the ground like a rented mule.

He's currently the better goalie on this team, and he's not a long-term solution of any sort. He's going to float out West and be a career back-up somewhere, the same as his predecessors.

I think Biron has made a sufficient case to lose his job. If Biron could just manage to play mediocre this season, than the Flyers would be in better shape.

Any fan has good reason to be pissed at Marty today. He handed the Pens 2 gift wrapped points. I don't really see anyone expecting Biron to play like Roy. Hopefully he's one of those guys that elevates his game and last year wasn't a mirage. He's just not that predictable right now.

It doesn't look like checkmate.

But, consider:

1. The blurred guy trailing the play is Crosby.
2. In the following seconds, none of the orange guys make an attempt to play the puck after the guy in the pads drops it.

Could you imagine Marty in a series versus the Red Wings?

Detroit would score no less than 5 or 6 goals a game.

I guess they were stunned by what they just saw happen, cannot blame them for that...

Seriously.

Biron will take the majority of the heat because the numbers on the backs of the sweaters of those who stood and watched the horror unfold don't match the numbers on The Whipping Boy List.

I see the elitely-defensive Selke potential #12 watching the league's second best player skate by and then failing to stop the pass to him. I see the future shutdown stud Greatest Trade Ever #5 standing really quite still, taking no action whatsoever. And then there's He Who Made Randy Jones Redundant #25 being beaten to a loose puck with the game in the line. Who else is in that frame? Is it #22 or #18?

That doesn't even mention that #5 and #25 allowed themselves to be split by a 9 goal scorer with two minutes left in a tie game in the first place.

Yes with d pairings like Alberts and randy ****ING jones together. Or Carle and Coburn. Stupid combos make more work fore the goalie. and if that goalie isnt patrick roy that goalie will let in a lot of goals. especially against a team like detroit that plays solid disaplined hockey.


Jones and Alberts get to play while they just plain blow, yet Ossi rides the pine......


That said, it doesnt excuse why Biron did what he did. That was just stupid

See?



All that said, it's boneheadery of the highest order by Biron, really not a play that's explainable by anything other than lack of focus, and that's a bad way to lose a hockey game.

Come on, Jones made himself redundant when he first laced up ice skates and decided he wanted to play professional hockey. That is all.
