I'm bummed in general because events like last night that "may" have some (even me at times !) thinking that he's not yet ready for # 1, so that is why I included him recent numbers to show how sometimes perception & reality are different.
Completely agree. As much as we don't want there to be a goalie controversy this year, there totally is. Every single game, there's people on either side of the coin who've made it very personal.
You have the people that somehow (irrationally) feel threatened by the prospect of Schneider, a relative outsider, taking Marty's job in his (possibly) last year and running with it, so they're waiting for every possible slip-up to assert their opinion that "Marty's better".
And on the other hand you have people with unreasonable expectations of Schneider who use every win or stat to try and kick Marty down a peg.
And then there's people in the middle who just want DeBoer to put a winning team on the ice, which inevitably will use Marty's veteran clutch at some points in the season, and Schneider's totally off the charts skill at others. I'm thrilled with the goalie situation this year, we have two elite goaltenders and I don't feel like we're a very vulnerable team on most nights, like I may have felt last year.
