The Ducks don't know too much about Chad Johnson right now but have exploited all the weaknesses of Elliott. Trying Johnson could save our season like in November.
sorry, i thought you were one of the Gillies supporters...

i posted in this thread that i would pick johnson to start if healthy, but not going against the Elliott start due to the circumstances

But hey, maybe the worst franchise in the NHL at developing goalies should defy the practices that have been proven to actually work (70 to 150 games of seasoning in the AHL) and throw Gillies in. Because impatient fans.
Are you seriously going to die on the hill that 72 games is materially different than 46 games?

Inexperienced goalies get a chance sometimes.

Anyone that though Elliott was the answer for tonight, after 5 bad games against the Ducks in 16 games, well I hope you now understand the question.

Game 5 is going to be the decider, and no way do I think Elliott wins game 5 in Anaheim to break this fkn curse.
Not so much. Turns out we needed Ken Dryden to get the win tonight.

Someone tell Andrei Vasilevskiy his 37 AHL games aren't going to cut it.

Yeah, because when you have 12 examples of X and 2 examples of Y, the TruFan always believes their player will be Y.

Johnson will be the backup to start next season. You can book it.

Dig the confidence, but you're counting chickens way before they hatch. As of today, the Flames have 2 pending Ufa goalies. I wouldn't be shocked if neither returned next season.

12 examples of what? You have not provided a single example of a goalie being ruined by being given a chance.

So please, feel free to offer up some and teach us true fans a lesson.
