And note, Cecho got this year’s losses not because of him. And if your team scores one goal and wins after overtime, and that’s your only win, and then you don’t score for 3 games, I suppose goaltending is not the problem. Oh, yeah, the skaters didn’t trust Cechmanek so they wouldn’t play proper offence. Right.
Boucher was the last goalie to take Philly past the 1st round, that’s true. But Vanbiesbrouck used to be a playoff goalie before his Flyer days, so did Hextall, who actually didn’t play THAT bad in the playoffs, you fans just blame him, like you always blame the goalie, the same case with Cecho this year. Boucher just happened to be there the only year your team didn’t stop playing when the big dance begun, I don’t mean that he wasn’t spectacular then, though.]]>

I’ve just a few more things before I sit back and let the numbers speak for themselves. All the ranks I’ve given are for the Flyer’s team history (I don’t want anybody posting that Roy is the active leader in playoff wins not Boucher). I didn’t post ranks for win% because the site I got these stats from didn’t have the all-time list for win %. It also only tracks save % since 1980, and since that leaves out Parent (probobly the best Flyers goalie ever), I didn’t think it was right to compare Boucher and Cechmanek to “Flyer’s goalies” and not include Parent on this list. I also skipped losses because goalie A could play 1 game and lose it, and goalie B could play 100 games and lose 5, and yet goalie A would be ranked higher. I didn’t think it was a fair statistic, so I skipped it (the fact that Cechmanek and Boucher would be ranked higher than Parent had a little to do with it too.) Now I will leave you to look over those statistics with two final thoughts.
1) Boucher gets better (statistically, at any rate) in the playoffs. Cechmanek doesn’t. Don’t you want a goali that steps it up at crunch time?
2) Boucher is 25! Cechmanek is 31.]]>
Anyways, the Belfour stuff I said wasn’t directly to you, but this whole post…]]>
