LA used the same players, the same system and gave up the same types of shots all season. Most teams couldn't penetrate LA's defensive zone all season long. Yet his save percentage went from .929 to .980
That's not opinion, but fact.
Well riddle me this fact boy,
Are the Canucks supposed to be "most teams?"
"Most teams" in this league aren't cup contenders.
"Most teams" did not have one of the highest ranked PP's and overall GF's in the league.
The Canucks aren't supposed to be "most teams." We are supposed to be a team that can light an elite goalie's vagina on fire if we're playing our style of puck possession and high skill.......regardless of whether both twins are in the line up or not.
If you looked at your "facts", you'd also realize that outside of the San Jose series last year, the Canucks had difficulty scoring in every other series' of theirs.
The "facts" state that as talented as the Canucks are during the regular season, they simply do not produce anywhere near the same numbers offensively in the post-season when it matters most.
RIP Creeper. You will be missed.
