Given that Grahame's AHL return wasn't exactly stellar I supppose that it doesn't make much sense to sign him to backup Leighton and keep Backlund in Adirondack?

With Brodeur we lose 1-0
With Kiprusoff we lose 2-0
With Boucher we lose 3-0
With Leighton we lose 4-0
With Backlund we lose 5-0

Doesn't much matter.

Most teams with their starter out for a long period of time would kill to have a guy like Boucher putting up the numbers that he's put up. Sure, he's only at a .902 right now but how many goals were due to horrid defensive positioning, 9 minute PPs, and lackluster backchecking?

Well.. I definitely called this **** back when Emery got hurt. "They are gonna overplay Boucher and he is gonna get hurt" Some said to think positive and it wont happen. Well guess what. It ****ing happened. Now we have ****ing Leighton as our starter.... Mr. 4.00 GAA goalie.

He got a cut on his hand. Didn't have anything to do with how much he played

The really ****ing scary thing is if we had never picked Leighton up last week, Backlund would be our starting goalie. That's a slight 'thank ****ing christ' in the cluster **** that is this team right now.

If you see them, give me a call. I'll try to woo one of them and threaten to break their dicks off, unless they start playing like they give a ****.

But for real, our starting goalie was waived by the worst team in the league when he was their backup.

Emery suffered through that 9 minute power play, just sayin'. Obviously Boucher has had his fair share of penalties to kill.

Also, I don't think anyone on the defense has been playing that poorly in front of Boucher. Coburn's brief bout with retardation has mostly subsided and he looks like a competent second pairing d-man lately; Parent is playing better than at the start of the year; and Carle and Bartulis have been pleasant surprises. They give up some chances, but every defense gives up some chances (it's the NHL, guys are gonna get some looks at the net). On the whole the defense has been alright, particularly when you look at how little pressure they're getting off the back check at times. A hard back check makes life so much easier on your D, and the Flyers D aren't always getting that pressure from behind forcing players into them.

I also would be interested to look at the time-on-attack stats for our opposition during the slump. With the forwards group playing how they have been I would bet that it favors our opponents by a lot. If that's the case then it speaks well of our defense (and to some extent shot blocking) that we're bottom 5 in the league in total shots against, despite other teams getting to spend more time in our zone.

I have been watching the games with less of an eye to detail as of late (for the sake of my own sanity), but that has been my impression of things.

They'll probably need a private room - God knows people get more and more irritated as the night goes on and the liquor continues to flow. Someone needs to ***tap one of them.

Did you just flick me in the *****?
No, I flicked you in the fleshy patch where your ***** used to be.
