Maple Leafs 3, Panthers 7

LeafsHappy holidays Leaf fans! Here's a steaming pile of shite for your stocking.

It's time for another goalie controversy. Andrew Raycroft allowed six goals on 26 shots and we can't blame them all on Hal Gill. It was a horrible effort all around, but if we're going to make the playoffs it's going to require rock solid play between the pipes. Raycroft isn't the guy.

You know what Booner,

I always defended Raycroft, blaming the team. Maybe I just really wanted this guy to shine, to prove to all Leaf fans that he is an exceptional goalie. But I've lost faith in him, it was a mistake getting this kid. He needs to learn how to steal a game and he hasn't done that yet.

Nabakov you still there???

Mike, it takes a big man to admit your mistakes.

I never liked this deal. Raycroft had a good rookie campaign and a horrible year last year. He was slowly winning me over earlier in the season, but now he's good for one or two soft goals a game.

What's Peter Ing doing these days?
