That much!? All I see are wristers from the blue line. Here's hoping he continues to build confidence and gets a few in his wheelhouse.
Few and far between are the shots that blow by a goaltender, more common something tipped along the way or is unseen squeaking through a screen.

I'm more concerned about not having a viable shot from the side from the circle out. Henrik and Daniel are not the guys.
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.

Your posting it here obviously convinced them! :)

For the record, they break when they break. Slap, wrist, pass, slash. If you could feel the weakness, you'd grab another one but you can't tell.

and its unlikely that the puck will ring around the boards and escape the zone, yada yada.

Definitely nice to see more shots getting through but as of now, Larsen: 0G 0A 0P.

Wonder what Stecher would have? He may or may not have more points, (bet he would), but he'd have more hits me thinks. (that would be hits for, not against). :lol:

Hits against! Now that would be an interesting stat!

Larson would lead that category with 0.

Tanev would lead the league in that regard, poor fella.
A long time ago, a baseball player remarked: "If I owned a ballclub, I'd hire a $5,000 coach and a $15,000 scout."
