Seems like the plan is to run then 2-3 games each. Also seems like they are playing the numbers games. They are using stats to help make a decision as to who starts and where. I guess with two number ones you have that luxury of using the stats and letting them both run for 2-3 games at a time.
This controversy sucks doesn't it. I mean the biggest problem we have today is trying to figure out which number one gets the start. How I long for the days when we worried about who was going to be top 2 on D, who was going to play centre, did we have a fourth line, etc. I hate goalie controversies. They are so draining on the fans, the team and the media.
The disruption this team is experiencing because of this is overwhelming. If the team didn't have to deal with this distraction, this dissension in the dressing room, no telling where they would be in the standings. Perhaps the twins would have more goals if they could just concentrate on playing hockey. Maybe Kesler would have a more burning desire to return to the line up. Maybe Ballard would play better, oh wait he is. Maybe the distraction of this goalie controversy has allowed Ballard to settle down and play his game knowing he is not under the spot light anymore?
It doesn't matter what MG gets in return. He needs to rid the team of this major controversy, this overwhelming distraction. For the sake of the franchise, please Mike, just get a 4th already and be done with it. After all thats what Thomas commanded and he has a cup. For the life of me I do not understand why MG was not in on that. Surely he could have made that deal with the NYI. But no....We get to bear witness to the franchise falling apart before our eyes because MG can't pull the trigger on a washed up, over paid, contract laden back up goalie who is doing nothing but causing problems in the dressing room. MG wouldn't know a good trade if it jumped up and bite him. Luongo is way better than Timmy and MG couldn't even get a 4th for him. Time to move him out and bring in someone with balls. Brian Burke is available and he left this franchise with a trove of riches, turned it around and almost brought us to the 3 rd round of the playoffs, once.
It must be true. The media says it is or if it isn't it soon will be.
The only HW the Canucks need
