Look what happened to him in the playoffs rolling that same MO.
actually, that was not theo's MO. nor was that his rep. go back and find boudreau's comments on theo. he fell into the "either he has it or he doesnt" catagory.

I'm definitely a little concerned with Neuvirth. Not that I can totally blame him for both the goals last night, but there have been moments where he's looked a little lost.

But I'm okay with Neuvy being the playoffs goalie. However, I can totally see Bruce pulling another Theo... replacing Neuvy with Varly if he looks shaky.

You sure Theo's play was that cut and dried, regardless of what Bruce said? He misleads or flat out lies to the media sometimes. Did he ever tell the media he didnt have confidence in Theo to start either of the last two playoff years? I didnt have confidence either and sure enough he got yanked.

The game logs of Theo getting yanked in the regular season on those nights Bruce knew he wouldnt have it supporting your claim that he has it or not, should be easy for you to dig up.

Neuvy has had his shaky moments and has let in softies from time to time. The Detroit game he got a free pass cause he was rusty...but that hasn't been the case numerous times this year. He does seem to settle down more as the game goes on, last night was another example of that. But I don't know if BB will give him that luxury in the playoffs. Not after two playoffs of Theo putting the team in an early hole allowing weak goals.

Just wanted to mention it cost me $14 for a large beer at the ACC and $5.25 for a "Pizza Pizza" splice. My buddy and I tried to get into the "Real Sports" bar owned by the team but it was crazy packed. Heard they had a giant two-storey flat screen among other sights but it's quite a pricey place too.

It's amazing how mediocre the Leafs have been for ages but they have a spell on their fans allowing them to make crazy $$$$$ while icing even the crappiest of teams in any season.

yup I've been saying the exact same thing for years. When you have a team that makes as much money as the leafs do having Grabovski as a number 1 center is flat out embarrassing.
