Speaking of, are they ever going to announce game times for Sat-Sun? Please tell me they aren't both afternoon games...

We won game 3 :pop:

So you would bench a goaltender in the next series if he pulled us through this round on a simple feeling that you don't think he can do it all the way for us? Are you kidding me?

A goaltender might come in and save us and win the series for us, and you're going to bench him after that because you don't THINK he can go all the way? You'd rather go back to the guy that has failed you rather than stay with the guy that has helped you? You'd rather bench him BEFORE you can find out if he can go all the way?

wow.


I just don't think Vokoun can get us all the way to the Cup. MAF can if he gets his head right. If we need to go back to MAF, Id rather do it in game one of a series instead of game six.

Lets agree on this: We have to deal with what's in front of us. Vokoun plays the rest of the series, and if we win, we talk about what happens next.

Why do you think MAF can? If the answer is he previously won a Cup 4 years ago, that's a pretty weak leg to stand on given what's occurred since then.

Consider if the series does go 7 games, that there is back to back Sat-Sun.



We tend to over-think this. Nabakov will be playing back to back also.

Then again, looks like he will sink or swim with 92.

The season is not even four months old. If they need a vacation after that, it's a shame.

Goin with Vokoun is a "Degree All-in moment" (WSOP watchers know that quotation).

One that is unfortunately necessary.

Lost our franchise goalie last night. We will ride the hot hand through the playoff and come into next season wide open at the position..

IF TV ends up having a hell of a run I say we buy MAF out and just roll with him for the short-term future. More likely, we go into next season with MAF
