Yeah and on message boards, I actually get one in once and awhile.
Just look down, shoot, and hope for the best. That always works. It was a fine parting shot, AG.

No, no, no! Head up! Always keep the head up! That way you can see the goalie.

Supposedly.

Maybe you're right. You are Canadian, after all. My coach is only Minnesotan.

damn it, you know what I meant... I'm trying to reply to six different threads. I meant the Conn Smythe not the Vezina. I mix up trophies almost as often as Roy relocates the hinges of his doors .

No, AG, you're actually right, lol...the true goal scorers always keep their heads up...but if you want to score on a prayer, you look down, and just give her...and hope for the best. Granted, players who do this never score, but it's beside the point.

Prayer, that might be the missing component...

At least I'm getting them in the empty net now.

Hey, you've got to start somewhere...and a good parting shot is a great way to start. Empty nets work quite well, too, but I think you've already taken the next step. It's all baby steps. haha, you'd probably kick my butt in hockey, who am I kidding.

Baby steps is right, I have very short legs and strides. Pretty much anyone can beat me to the net.

I'm told I can finally make the F level of the RMHL though, so hey! Little victories. My advantage is my small size, innocent demeanor and foul language.

hey Griffs, I just want to make one more point beforeI let this thing die. Now I know this is an extreme, but I'm just doing it to make a point, so bear with me.

Lets say there is team A who is full of superstars for 10 years, by far the greatest team ever, offensively and defensively. But they have the worst goalie of all time. Every game they give up 10 shots and he lets in 9 goals. So he has a GA of 9.00 and a Save % of .100 in the 10 years. But, they score 10 goals every game. So they always win, and they won 10 Stanley Cups with him.

Now there is Team B, the worst team of all time. They give up 100 shots a game. But they have a great goalie, he stops 99 of them. So he has a 1.00 GA and a .990 Save %. But his team never scores, so they lose every game 1-0. But he ends up winning 10 Vezinas.

Now by your theory, you would say the goalie on Team A is better than the goalie on Team B, because he has 10 Stanley Cups, and that means more than the 10 Vezinas, since the Stanley Cups are the ultimate "individual" accomplishment. So do you see how ridiculous that is?

EXACTLY!!!

I thoroughly agree... so much so in fact, that for the first time I'm going to have to say Fuckin' Eh!

Chizip summed up my sentiments about measuring goaltending prowess...

It's Official now.

I'm taking bets for how long it will take for the "Roy comeback"...
