Not so much a general sports blog as an irregularly updated desperate plea for help.
Loved the top-10 list. For #12, how about, "Putting in a cold goalie for the shootout worked so well in D2: The Mighty Ducks"? Of course, maybe that only works if the goalie is female...
Joseph looked exactly like you would expect a cold goalie to look - slow and timid. I loved Pierre Maguire's complete 180, though - he went from praising the move one minute to subtly dissing it 60 seconds later, talking about Joseph's first shot of the game being Selanne on a breakaway. As the kids would say, "Duh!" My son is a goalie, and the absolute worst is when he has to go in cold, half way through a game, and get a breakaway as his first shot. You can often outsmart yourself as a coach, which is precisely what Wilson did here.
We're only 6 games into the season and I am already deathly sick of hearing "Tank for Tavares."
That's why it was No. 11.Is it too soon to start talking about "Tank for Taylor?"
Putting a 41 year old goaltender into a shootout after sitting on the bench for the better part of 3 hours is dumb for another obvious reason...risk of injury.Cujo could have easily pulled or even tore his groin making the splits on a save.Fortunately for him his reflexes were too slow for that.Wilson had better come up with a better idea the next time because a trapping, offensively challenged team like the Leafs will will be participating in a fair number of shootouts this year, if they're lucky enough to get to OT, that is.
