Who starts in goal next game?

33 posts in this topic

OK, who starts in goal next game?

 

If Schneider is healthy, does PDB go back to him? If so, does he make him the everyday goalie?

 

Or does Brodeur's play last game warrant that he plays next game? If so, does he still get a chance to earn the top spot?

 

Is there a top spot to be had?

 

Do the Devs go back to rotating?

 

What's the plan?

I could be losing my marbles, but I could have sworn I read something from Lou (via TG or someone maybe?) that said they expected Schneider could be back to backup on Tuesday.  Which I took to mean Marty would be starting.

 

Again, could have mis-read, could have made it up in my head entirely, can't seem to find it now. But that's what I thought I read this morning.

Tough call.  Only if Schneider is 100% healthy is when I'd start him.  99% or less, then Marty.

def brodeur, You cant blame those 2 goals that got deflected right in front of the net on him, and they won so you give him another game.  Plus schneider might not be 100% in game shape after missing a few days

Let Marty play until we lose

if schnieder has any muscle issues play marty and mark it off as one of his starts. let cory get to 90-100%.  but this should have been decided already with Kinkaid kept up

 

as far as the "tip in" goals that brunner one found a "hybrid-hole"

Let's see what he can do in a home start coming off a dramatic W in Boston

kinkaid against the lightning over brodeur... LOL

1.97 GAA, .912 save % in Albany this year over a guy who seemingly cant keep out a volley ball. I must be some idiot.

yea maybe... if you think kinkaid should be in net to face the lightning over marty.. or your smoking something.. that save percentage is for playing minor league teams as you said in albany... not sure how you are comparing it.

You really don't get the whole small sample size thing, do you? If you want to see us lose 12-2, yes, lets play Kinkaid.

To suggest that Kinkaid gets the start over Marty is completely assinine.  He is only up with the big team for the moment until Schneider returns.  Pointless to start him in this game...

Exactly, Reid Boucher scored some absurd amount of goals in the juniors last year.  Does not mean a thing for the next level of competition...

Ok, sorry, he has a lifetime .904 or something, and he hasnt played for spectacular teams. Why shouldnt he be given a shot when hes played well enough? He got put in that one game last year and looked like he was keeping up alright. I guarentee hell put up better numbers than Brodeur has.

The fact that you'd use 1 game where he played less than 26 minutes as evidence that Kinkaid deserves a start now tells everyone all they need to know. He doesn't even have 100 pro games under his belt. He's not starting unless something horrific happens and that's the way it should be.

Kinkaid getting the start won't happen if Schneider is out only a few games, but anyone suggesting that Kinkaid could be a better option than Brodeur...well that's simply not asinine.  With an .871 save percentage and a GAA at 3.32, you could make the case that every starting AHL goalie could be given 5 or so games and put up equal if not way better numbers than Brodeur.

But you know that they're not doing that to Marty in his final year.  It's one thing if he's losing starts to Schneider.  They're not going to play untested guys like Kinkaid or Wedgewood over him at the NHL level.
