Calling Out Goalies

from Stan Fishchler at the Hockey Journal,

* Roberto Luongo’s dismal playoff performance against Chicago – for the second spring in a row he choked against the Blackhawks – underlines a few points:

1. He is the most overrated — and overpaid—goalie in hockey;

2. Vancouver will never win a Stanley Cup with Luongo in goal; and

3. The sooner dear Roberto gives up the captaincy, the better off it will be for the entire team….

* Now Boston must deal virtually useless Tim Thomas, who’s overpaid and over-the-hill and a dubious Number One anywhere.

As the Bruins went down in the last moments of Game 6 in Philly, the cameras caught Thomas smiling on the bench, talking to Tuukka Rask, who’d just been pulled. We wonder what was so funny at that point in time.

Stan, going a little crazy again I see. 

Yes Lou had another rough series, but come on.  Never will win?  That’s a hell of a leap.

Does anyone enjoy reading Stan Fischler? I am being serious, I would like to know if anyone out there enjoys reading his articles.

His ideas are so out of touch, and that’s not a knock on his age….they have been out of touch since he wrote his first article.

They were probably laughing at how silly you look with all those liver spots, Stan.

And that WAS a knock on his age. I respect my elders… save for Stan Fischler.

“The Maven”, as Stan likes to call himself, is a moron.  Back in the day, he used to write for the Hockey Digest and said then that Gretzky would not amount to much, that Bryan Trottier and Gordie were much better hockey players. “The Maven” even remarks that Gordie was a great goalie too. 

Somehow I don’t think Roberto need be quaking in his boots at this yellow journalism.

This guy should get a spot on Dwayne’s blog .. he he
