I haven't seen all the games, but he has looked like Holtby in the games I have seen, he's looked fine. I wonder if it's early for an NHL recall but knew this would be the case at some point this season given the goalies they went into the season with on the payroll.
Like some other Caps goalies we have seen, Holtby needs bungee cords to keep him in his crease and keep the fans from screaming at him to not overplay the puck
I didn't see the game last night, but from what I heard he tried to score a goal with the 4-2 lead and the goalie pulled.
Glad you brought up the matter of goalies not staying put. One of the pluses you hear about Neuvy's game is that he's so technically sound, but I did see him wander a bit on Saturday night and take a few chances of going behind the goal while the puck was still in our defensive end. That scared the bejebus out of me but then I owed it to Neuvy knowing what he had as d-men in front of him and figured he had totake matters in to his own hands.
Holtby trying to score a goal, gotta love it, he's sounding and acting more like Billy Smith and that ain't bad.
And we'll counter their speed with our secret weapon, David Steckel. All Steckel needs to do is turn in front of them to get into their "travel" lane, similar to an 18-wheeler getting into the left travel lane, result slows everthing and everyone down.
