Goalie Decisions To Be Made

Posted Wednesday | Comments 0
Over the last few years, we've seen a lot of two-headed monsters in the nets of NHL teams. We've seen Roloson and Fernandez, Miller and Biron, Giguere and Bryz, Nabokov and Toskala, Vokoun and Mason, and the list goes on... Roloson and Fernandez were the first to split, and just a few months ago the Miller/Biron monster was broken apart. This summer, it appears we'll ...
I know the title is dramatic, but this is a dramatic situation. So here it goes.... We'll start with a bit of a recap. IMO, the Blues have been the best test of the team so far. The way they clog the neutral zone and battle for pucks really forced the Sharks to fight for a victory in this one. I'm so happy Clowe is healthy and being the player we had knew he was capab...

Nabokov?

Posted Wednesday | Comments 0
I have been talking with my boyfriend about the goaltending situation where Nabby's the #1, and Boucher is an after thought, only really relied on if Nabby gets hurt. We both think that Nabby's become somewhat complacent in his role, and his drop off in production could be in part because he's not feeling challenged for the starting spot. Think about it, back when To...

Bring on the ...Slovaks?

Posted Thursday | Comments 0
Last night was definitely something NOBODY saw coming. Before the Canada game with Russia I said it was going to be a close game and predicted a 5-4 Canada win...I wasn't alone in thinking it would be close. Most analysts agreed, however it turned out to not even be a contest. I knew for sure Canada would come out strong on the puck and forecheck hard, but I never imagi...
Earlier this week, the San Jose Sharks announced that they will not re-sign goaltender Evgeni Nabokov. The Russian goaltender has been with the Sharks since 1999, posting just less than 300 wins. Nabokov earned 5.3 million this past season, but General manager Doug Wilson has his reasons for letting him walk. “If you look at the trends in this league the last four or ...
February 13th, 2009 was a lot more than just a game between the Buffalo Sabres and San Jose Sharks. A plane crash in Clarence Center left the entire city of Buffalo devastated. The National Hockey League questioned whether or not the game should be played. A few of the Sabres had family and friends that lived in the area, and many people knew some of the victims that di...

Tampa Bay goalie thoughts

Posted Monday | Comments 0
Nabokov's dad said that his son wants to play for Tampa. Yes there are hurdles to overcome and they seem difficult; but with the "magic" Yzerman has done for this team, I have no doubt he could successfully tackle this. Nabokov hasn't proven that he can carry a team all the way through the playoffs, but there was so much said about Khabibulin not being able to either, that...

I can't seem to vent enough about this and this isn't as a Red Wings fan. I think they'll be fine either way, and I'd be just as pissed as if this were the Caps, Avs or Tampa signing him only to lose to the Islanders. The Islanders claiming Nabokov off waivers was flat-out disrespectful to the guy. Say what you want about his stats in the playoffs, but he put in 9 yea...

After a tumultuous start to his New York Islanders career Nabokov showed up to training camp this year and have proved that he is still capable of being a strong NHL goaltender. Couple that with the emergence last season of Al Montoya and the forever under contract Rick DiPietro and the Islanders have three goaltenders that could be the team’s starter. If the Islan...

Al Montoya has been playing excellent lately, making himself the team's number one goaltender. But with Rick DiPietro's contract keeping him here for many more years to come, how long will Montoya's run last? http://thecheckingline.com/blog/rob-mcgowan/new-york-islanders/have-isles-become-montoyas-team -Rob McGowan http://twitter.com/IslesRM http://twitter.com/TCLI...

Yesterday and today, he had good days.” Read more at The Checking Line - I...

Feb. 6—The Red Wings dropped a loss tonight to the Phoenix Coyotes. The game was closer than the 3-1 score reflected because of the empty net goal of Martin Hanzal at the end of the game. Joey MacDonald had a decent game with 22 saves, but there is already talk of shopping for another goalie while all-star starter Jimmy Howard recovers from a broken finger. Evgeni Nab...
