I know it's a breakaway.. But sometimes a goalie can make a stop... Akira never shows up! 

Showed up in the playoffs last season. Your hard on for him is weird. Vanecek is even worse.

How the hell was either goal on Schmid? One was a back door tap in and the other was a breakaway with a perfect top corner shot. 

I think maybe he referencing at some point come up big and make a great save? Not his fault but just one huge save would go a long way.

They just are dude. Halak def would have gotten both of those, obviously.  Akira never makes a big save, ignoring the big one he made spread eagle on the first high scoring chance CBJ got.

Don’t let Luke off the hook either. Don’t care he’s a rookie. They should be working on the D part of defense with him. He makes some shocking decisions too, like Jack in his first year. 
 

not worried long term though. He’ll be great, just may have to wait a year or 2

Luke has been fine.

Shootout stats clearly demonstrate that the G has a material advantage on breakaways.  Schmid needs to stop one of these one of these days.

Have to believe something is coming -- this just can't go on.

 

Whether it's a major trade, a benching, a coaching change or all of the above, the season will go down the drain if Fitz sits on his hands.

 

His leverage admittedly sucks now.  But is probably the greatest it will be the rest of the year.

And if dude made that shot in a shootout he would have scored. 

The sad reality is that against VV and AS this year, "that shot" is way more than is required.

It's almost like people ignore that giving up odd man rushes and breakaways are considered bad for a reason. They still expect the goalie to own that just like they would on low percentage shot from the half wall or something. Wtf...all shots and scoring chances are equal now?

That's not entirely true -- no one would expect similar success rates on all shot types.  But AS and VV have underperformed against the league average on breakaways even accounting for the greater danger on those shots.
