Shootout Goalies Who Are Hard To Beat

via Sports Illustrated,

Who is the toughest goalie to beat in a shootout?

Henrik Lundqvist, Rangers 28%

Pekka Rinne, Predators 28%

Marc-Andre Fleury, Devils 8%

Ryan Miller, Sabres 7%

Tim Thomas, Bruins 5%

FAST FACTS

Lundqvist, who leads the NHL in save percentage (.939) won the All-Star Skills Competition, stopping six of seven shootout attempts…. The pick of a whopping 40% of players from his own Western Conference, Rinne ranks first among active goalies in career shootout save percentage (.784).... Fleury, just 20th in overall save percentage, leads the league with seven shootout wins…. In a similar poll on Facebook, Lundqvist filled the top slot with 31% of the votes, ahead of Thomas (30%), while Rinne tallied just (7%).

Okay.  Yeah, we all knew what “Uncle Daddy” meant.

I’ll save Paul the effort:  Refrain from personal attacks.  You are embarrassing yourself.  Perhaps you don’t care, but some people would like the discourse here to remain above that expected of a 3rd grader.

I can’t wait until the blocking feature shows up.  The value of this site will increase dramatically when I can count on the comment sections not including such drivel.

Your instincts were dead on with your first comment. 

That said, I’m actually able to translate from EvilPen to English on this one, though: Uncle Daddy = Marty. Marty left his wife and kids for her brother’s wife. So in a sense, he’s the uncle to his own kids.

I thought it was his wife’s sister.  EP isn’t the only one to call him that.  It’s pretty common.

What, you think the Avery Brodeur feud was over creative goaltender screening?

Avery kept chirping him about this subject for at least five years.
