Ken Dryden essay "Time for hockey to get head smart"

Dryden's take ... "My guess is that a lot less would change and for many fewer players than we think. My guess is also that many of the changes would make our games better, and not only for reasons of safety. If some rules are changed, players and coaches will find ways to adapt and to gain a competitive advantage, because that's what players and coaches do."

InGoal Magazines's analysis of the Christensen goal, at the heading Capitals Neuvirth caught in another VH gaffe The VH technique was also criticized (though in somewhat comical fashion by announcers who mislabeled and clearly mis-understood it) after Neuvirth got caught using it by a perfect, water-bottle buckling, sharp-angle power play shot by the Rangers in Game 3 on Sunday: It was quickly derided as poor use of the technique – sharp enough angle but too far out – and that may be true. But at what point does poor execution of VH, rather than poor selection of when to use it also come into play? Neuvirth holds his glove up, but outside the post where it protects nothing, rather than over this shoulder in the net space the puck goes in. He also gets caught cheating off the post, which begs the question: Would it have gone in anyway if he’d been squared up to the shooter in a traditional butterfly, especially if he cheated to the middle again?

Thanks to everyone who voted - it was fitting that Neuvy should win over Lindback in the poll, since he was the winning goalie in the match up on Saturday

Vote today for Neuvirth for goalie star of the week

InGoal magazine has a poll for three goalie stars of the week. Neuvy was left off the list, but evidently comments can be used for write in votes Update: The write in was accepted, and he's now on the list.

Michal Neuvirth - The Great Deceiver?

Evidently "Justin" of Dobber Hockey gave Neuvirth this nickname awhile ago, in June 2009. It was new to me.

Wasn't it just a few weeks ago that so many of us laughed at Washington's Alex Ovechkin and accused him of gagging against the Montreal Canadiens in the first round of the playoffs? The Not-So-Great 8 could do nothing to prevent his Capitals -- the NHL's President's Trophy-winning team -- from losing Game 7 at home. Well guess what? That was Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin, Sergei Gonchar and Marc-Andre Fleury who hair-balled it against the Canadiens on this night Read more: http://www.post-gazette.com/pg/10133/1057872-87.stm#ixzz0nnT23q29
