    I guess they have to decide if these guys that have trade value will be here when things start turning. If you have to trade someone now with value, that is a start to getting better prospects. Sometimes you have to trade your best players to fix things down the line. Just look at the Indians, they are probably going to trade their best player to start replenishing their farm system. Columbus is in the same boat. Unfortunately the don't have a Lindor type talent to draw top prospects.

    I`d like to hear which of the goals was his fault. Was it the double tip in? Was it the one that was tipped AND he was screened, was it the cross- crease goal? Or maybe he was at fault for the empty net goal aswell?

    Elvis has gotten 1 goal of support in his last two starts. Very cool.

    I put the five hole goal on Elvis. Beyond that, he was good.

    Yes, the empty net was on him for sure! also him and Korpi not scoring goals make them really bad goalies overall....

    They’re trying hard, but it’s only a matter of time before human nature takes over and they start mailing it in.

    I hope not. Because then you have to wonder if you have guys that will respond when things get tough, or will they just fold. Win or lose, I want them playing hard for the rest of the year.

    The dude simply doesn't cover enough of the net.

    Double tip? Any puck that goes through Korpisalo like that is trashed.

    Look at how much net he is actually covering on the cross ice pass goal. Look at how much of the ICE he is blocking as the puck passes him and the goal line...HE'S UP OFF THE f***ING ICE. Its essentially a tap in goal. Most of the shots that go in on Merzlikins aren't even good shots.

    The dude hasn't won a damn game. Nobody seems to care that Korpisalo started many games on the road.

    I think people are just frustrated by the losing. No need to go off on posters like this.

    LOL at the idea that double-tipped goals are "essentially a tap in" that Korpisalo would have no trouble stopping.

    Elvis goal support: 2,2,3,2,3,0,1 (2.29 goals/game, though the team also did nothing in the 2 OT losses and 1 SO loss) // Fwiw, Korpisalo gets 2.5 goals/game of support - more, but not significantly so.

    I'm not sure what the lack of wins has to do with his play when the offense hardly shows up for him, the coach only starts him on the road, and 6 of his 7 starts have come against teams currently in playoff position.

    Both goalies have been below average, but they're not significantly different. No real reason for Korpisalo to get 75% of the starts - his play hasn't justified it. Elvis needs to be getting North American games in and the team has botched the first 2+ months of his development here. Send him to Cleveland, imo.
