Backlund already looks 100 times better then Boosh.

Slow is the one word I would not use to describe him right now. As a goalie, and a coach, he is doing everything pretty good right now, but he may be playing over aggressive. He is out on top of his crease, which is where I teach every goalie I work with to be. Watching Boosh and Leighton these past few weeks whenever they were getting scored on they were sitting in the middle of the blue. Right now ever time Backlund makes a save he has been about an inch or two outside of the blue. When the puck is on our zone he is constantly crouched ready to make a move to save the puck. He is basically playing like someone who has finally been given a chance and they are going to play like there is no tomorrow.

Good positioning, good vision, quick glove, a little slow on his feet, not too well with playing the puck.

Giroux to the box. From Saunders "Might be the least disciplined play from him all year."

I was going to come and say that was BS penalty, but they just showed the replay, just dumb by giroux. Weak but why even do that.
