The only time i dont like that rule is back to back games. Hiller is horrid on the 2nd game of a back to back game and Big Mach should be starting every time we have a back to back game. Either Hiller then Big Mac or Big Mac then Hiller.
I missed the game Wednesday, but Hiller only let in 2 goals. Good or bad goals, 2 is a very reasonable number. Still I think we should play:
New Jersey: McE
San Jose: Hiller
Over the next few games. Let Hiller rest a bit through the weekend, and then let him face Dallas and be fresh for San Jose next week. Hiller is our #1 but if we have a good backup there is no reason to run Hiller into the ground.
I'm surprised at how many seem to be jumping on the Mcbackup band wagon. There is probably a reason he has never played more than 20 games in a season.
Hiller is the #1 and should play at least 60 games this year.
As for the lineup, hopefully Fowler will play and RC keeps Syvret in the lineup.
Vis-Lyd, Fowler-Mara, Lil-Syvret is my hope for the D tonight.
Well, a big reason may be that Calgary's not very smart. When he did well for us last year, my buddy, a Flames fan, wasn't surprised in the least, and said that he's a good goalie, he was just never given a real chance. I guess we'll see if that's the case.
