    Depends on the types of shots let in... I didn't see the game so Idk how he was beat. If it was like the perfect deflections,tips he let up in the playoffs that's fine, it's no big deal as he had 0 chance. Some just look at the numbers of goals and shot and just say he sucks. Goalie stats don't tell you anything about how well a goalie is
  2. You're very wrong about the position. I play goalie, just like the guy you're arguing with. Have you ever played the position? If not, then you can't say what a goalie should or shouldn't do as you don't have 1st hand experience. Goalie stats imo are pointless, I never look at them. How many of those goals in the playoff games did kk have a chance on...1, maybe 2. Most were deflections, perfect passes to guys left open by the defense, and many times kk was so screened you couldn't see him from the replay looking towards his net. The pull wasn't a reflection on kk, it was bc the team sucked. If roles were reversed they would have done this with cory. I'd be more concerned if he faced 5 easy shots from the point and let them all in, then being beat on perfect plays that he had 0, yes 0 shot at stopping. That's why I don't think cs is more then an average goalie... even when healthy will always let in the very weak goals, which has cost us many games. Goalie stats are meaningless to judge a goalie(as an nhl.com.article mentioned this yr). Everything that goes in the net counts equally, but not every shot is equal. If it's deflected off 2 people and goes in it counts just as much as a 5hole with no one in front, a basic wrister or a slapper from the point with no one in front. I'd rather have a goalie give up more goals and have a higher gaa and comes up with the big clutch saves to win games, then one with a lower gaa and routinely let's in the easy weak goals which cost us games. Feel free to pick this apart and make dumb comments
  3. I mean how many stoppable goals did he let in... maybe 1. The only thing kk didn't do was rob any of those games as that's the only way they were going to win. Id have to imagine in future playoffs games he gets better...
  4. I believe it was a groin injury in jan...

    Prob have a better chance at the trapazoid being removed then seeing that. As a goalie you can't play with any loose or broken strap as the helmet becomes loose and moves around, thus providing less protection and becomes a liability for the goalie. Now if you did that on a breakaway, having not faced a shot in a while you'd prob get a delay of game.
  6. Devils Report Card

    Personally I don't like Schneiders quote of saying "i was a big reason why were were in the position we were". Maybe bc I play the position and would never say anything like that, instead always credit the team in front of me. That line sounds like he's putting himself above the offense and D, which imo is something a goalie should never do. he was bailed out big time by the offense that was scoring alot early on this season which hid the one or 2 weak ones per game (on average). Once the offense slumped by Christmas he was exposed and "slumped", even though he was playing the same level goaltending.

  8. GDT: Devils @ Tampa Game 5 4/21/2018 3:00 PM NBC, NBCSN

    We can still win this..... but, Whatever happens this game we still exceeded all expectations this year, and most importantly gave valuable playoff experience to half the team. Make a few changes in the off-season and get back at it this season.
  9. GAME 3: Tampa Bay @ New Jersey. 730 PM EST, CNBC, MSG+

    The goalie getting paid 6 mil has played poorly after Dec both this yr and last yr. There is not 1 goal that was weak or soft that kk let in... better d and he gets at least 1 win. Think they'll win tonight, regardless of goalie... taking the over on cs letting in 1 weak goal.
  10. You'll never win with Schneider

    I tend to agree
  11. GDT: Game 2 - Devils at Lightning - 14 April @ 3pm Eastern

    I wouldn't be surprised at all...
  12. GDT: Game 2 - Devils at Lightning - 14 April @ 3pm Eastern

    For kk... Maybe 1 goal in 2 games was stoppable. Most were either perfect tips or our d blowing their coverage (And actually scoring against him today) Did make good though saves in each (more in game 1). For cs.... came in and didn't allow a goal. Has a bit of confidence following his performance. Tough call, but imo you stick with kk. Cs came in and kept them scoreless but was also had 0 pressure on him. Kk has been beaten by the perfect plays (And with Tampa that's alot if you don't cover people). Going back to kk would be a big sign the organization doesn't trust cory this yr... well see Monday what happens
  13. GDT: Game 2 - Devils at Lightning - 14 April @ 3pm Eastern

    Ok, showing some edge... Good signs for game 3 at home. Win 2 and we're in this
  14. GDT: Game 2 - Devils at Lightning - 14 April @ 3pm Eastern

    Stick to the back of the head really hurts....cant fault him for staying down.
  15. GDT: Game 2 - Devils at Lightning - 14 April @ 3pm Eastern

    It's not like kk had a shot on any of those goals, and none were weak. I'd go back to kk at home.
