He also sucks but he's 13 years younger and $9 million cheaper.
Nice. Sounds like a good pick.
Top scorer in his draft.
Awesome dude. 1 out of 5 players, guys the real deal.
Not everyone can be Aaron Ekblad.
He’d be the best defenseman on the Devils
So would I.
After watching the Flyers drop 7 goals on him in 4 periods this past week, he just does not look like the same Bobrovksy. Florida defense is not as good as the D he had in Columbus, but he still looks off.
It is becoming pretty obvious that he took the Florida money and now he is just on an extended paid vacation. Nobody could have seen this coming
The best part is, he had an even worse game a week later. Just last night he allowed 3 goals on 9 shots and was pulled after the first. All 3 goals were his fault.
You could remove Bob's 3-4 worst games and he would still have terrible numbers.
It's still early in the season. When Bob starts 20 of the remaining 25 games and has 25 shot shutouts in all 20 games, he's got a chance to squeak into the top 5 in SV% on the season. I feel like a lot of people are going to be eating crow come April!
If you remove every goalie's 4 worst games(as Bob has 4 clear games you can call his worst ones), and you only count goalies with 10 or more gp after removing those... Bob has the 3rd worst save percentage. Only Jones, & Howard are worse. In case you're wondering, Jones would have the worst sv%.
Why you talking about Ekblad that way?
Only six more years left on the deal, so it's not all bad.
Nice try. Ekblads actually good this season.
He reminds me a lot of Bryzgalov minus the personality. Big name goalie coming from behind a very strong defensively structured team and exposed behind a mediocre defensive team desperate to fix their lingering goaltending problem.
Oh i know, Bob owned you guys last spring and swept you away from a promising playoff run. It's ok. Maybe one day you can heal.
"Oh no, I ran out of arguments and I was caught for lying! Well, better mock other posters favorite team. That'll show him!"
Okay? Doesn't changw the fact that you're dead wrong.
Imagine if they signed Lehner for half the price instead
You'll just have Florida fans tell you that he would also be terrible behind that defense. They'll ignore the fact that they've been much better with two fringe NHL goalies in net than Bob and try to explain away how someone like Jonathan Bernier has significantly better numbers than Bob despite playing on a historically bad team.
Goalies are always risky signings. Personally I would never sign any goalie for that much, but I hope for Florida's sake, he can get back on track.
Yet the managers never learn anything.
This is Bryzaster v2.0, an even more expensive one
This will be a historically bad contract.
