Yesterdays win versus the x-champs was nothing short of miraculous! Entertaining and fun. Three goals in the last 3 minutes rejuvenated my faith in my team. However the performance in goal was club hockey at best. And proves that if we AVS can hope, expect, make a run at Lord Stanley we need to give up half of that cap space for a goalie that can provide ROY like blocking.
Before I lay into em, understand that I love Anderson and will never forget his great game against the guppies in the playoffs last year. But yesterdays 5 was garbage! Two were 5 hole robberies! On those two shots he was not screened and should have been saves. So far this season Anderson is proving why he wasn’t a blip on the radar until the season before last.
We have plenty of cap room and should use it to get us a back stopper who can make sure that our high powered offense doesn’t have to score 4-5 a night to win. We have an offense (scoring wise) that reminds me of our cup years. But have a goaltending duo that reminds me of the Nordiques and easily gives away 4-5 a night.
On a positive note DAMN we look good! 7 in a game when Hedjuk and Stewart were watching from the box is lovely. And the never give up attitude shown in the last 3 minutes was nothing short of historic. I’m excited about the team, its future and the current post season with a nice move at goal between now and the trade deadline, I believe could lead to a summer parade! Go AVS kick some Wackhawks A$$ again!
