I'd be legitimately frightened of Pittsburgh if it wasn't for Fleury. If he has another bad Spring, they might be out goalie hunting or stop gapping for a year. I might want to lock up CS a year early if i were Lou. 

 

Funny thing about that is the question we'd all like to see answered (Can Cory be the kind of goalie that can play 60+ games as a clearly-defined #1?) won't be...not this season, anyway.  Cory probably gets 45 starts, tops, and Marty's already survived two multiple-game stretches of poor play, and DeBoer clearly favors him, so Marty is going to have to really fall apart and Cory is going to have to play at the top of his game just to get to 45 starts or so.  So the big question is does Lou offer Cory a contract based on what he is, or what he thinks he can be?  We all think Cory can be a successful 60+ start-per-season guy, but we don't have proof of it yet.

 

re:  Fleury...yeah, one more bad spring and it will be interested to see what the Penguins do.  Even with his bad springs, he's been a pretty good and durable goalie for the Penguins for a while now...yeah, he is definitely propped up by playing for a top team, but guys who can stay healthy, make a lot of starts, and give you good play in the net aren't easy to find.  Sabermetric-minded types will tell you that Fleury's recent playoff follies all represent small samples, and will point to 2007-08 as fact that Fleury CAN get it done and raise his game when the stakes are higher.  My counter to that would be with some guys, once the failures become annual, does it start to mess with certain people's heads?  Fleury has now had four very weak postseasons in a row...does that weigh on his mind this postseason, and does he start feeling pressure that adversely affects his play?  Does a bad start or two to begin the postseason put him in "Here we go again!" mode?  Especially when he knows he's going to start hearing about it from the fans and reading about it and being asked questions about it?

THE NHL MUST LOVE THE DEVILS - from who else? A RANGER fan!
[Mark Messier]: A big, bald attention whore with a stupid Easter Island-lookin face. - from who else? DaneykoIsGod!

Even when Marty comes back maybe Larry should put Clemmensen to be on the goal during the shootouts.
Can the coach do that ? Switch the goalies 5 seconds to go in overtime?

Martin Brodeur: THE MOST ALL-TIME WINS!, 12 straight seasons of 30+ wins, 3 Stanley Cups, 4 Vezina Trophies, and zero respect from too many so-called Devils "fans" who are either too young or too bandwagon to remember the much darker days of Sean Burke, Craig Billington, Bob Sauve, Alain Chevrier, and the talented but overwhelmed Chico Resch, among many others.

It's easy to support a great player when he's playing at his very best. It takes a true fan to support that same player during those rare moments and stretches when he's not. Babe Ruth went 0-4 some games, and sometimes Wayne Gretzky was held pointless. There may be such a thing as greatness, but no such thing as absolute perfection every single night.

Odd Ranger stat:  everyone on the Rangers is either E or minus in plus/minus...except for Chad Kreider, who is somehow a +9.  Guess it's because he didn't play in the 9-2, 6-0, and 4-0 October Ranger blowout losses.  Still odd to see one guy so far away from his teammates in +/-.

I really don't know how anyone can still think this.  DeBoer gave the starting job to Schneider earlier in the year, but unfortunately he got hurt for a few games, and then Marty started to play really well, but still, it was basically an even split.  He gave Schneider the net in the tougher game against the Penguins, but Schneider didn't hold up.  Schneider has also been the only one to start on back-to-back nights.  And I'll bet you that Schneider gets the start against Anaheim, and perhaps the night after if Schneider plays well enough. 

 

Otherwise, I think Lou does everything he can to lock up Schneider long term this offseason.  Probably something close to what Rask got, except that there won't be a no-trade clause, or perhaps a limited no-trade clause. 

 

It's probably the wrong thread for this, so we can pick this up somewhere else if need be.

Lundqvist has a SV% of .867 in his last 6 games.  In all of those games, he's given up at least 3 goals.

They're six games into their 9-game homestand and are just 1-3-2 (one shootout win) through the first six games.  If they get out of it with a 4-3-2 record, then it won't be a complete disaster...but anything less has to be seen as extremely disappointing.  They're currently in an 11-out-of-12 @home stretch and have gone just 3-4-2 so far.  They were 13-13-0 going in...I'm sure the Rangers thought they'd be a few games over NHL .500 at least, by the end of it.  They might not even be that.

Boomer loves Torts.  Basically blames Vigneault for everything (including Luongo having issues in Vancouver).

Anyone see the JVR shootout goal against PHX?  I really dislike Mike Smith.  I get doing whatever is necessary to get the win, but I feel like his "sliding out of the net, then exposing the puck" was very bush league.  I would have awarded a goal on that premise alone.
