    Not nearly as much as it happens with him. The difference between great goalies and mediocre goalies is usually just a matter of consistency. Dom just doesn't make enough of the routine saves. They get by him. A lot of the goals he gave up during that bad stretch weren't even B-grade, so I'm not sure why you're claiming defensive breakdowns were the problem. We weren't breaking down any more than other teams around the league. A lot less than most, as shown in Macho's stats.

    He only went 3 and 0 this week. Earned 2nd star of the week by the NHL, and a very good save percentage during to 3 games. I never complained about him.

    I don't think anyone does? He's over his head right now as a starter. But that's to be expected - he's not a starter in this league.

    Then again, as you said, it's three games. Domingue has deserved a lot of critisism for making our team have to do twice as much work for wins by giving up multiple softies game by game.

    Only because I talked about him in another post last night, I remember my count on Domingue. 15 stoppable on 50 allowed. Exactly 30% of goals allowed. Not the highest percentage, but worse than average. The thing with him is that early in the year he had a game where he allowed 7 goals and not one of them were a goal I thought he could have had. So this killed his save percentage for a while, but I didn’t have him down for many poor goals allowed at that time. Then came a point where he started racking them up, even though his save percentage got a little better. I’ve been adding a lot to his total recently. The one goal he allowed to the Avalanche the other night was one of them. I remember a couple of very early poor goals against the Panthers fairly recently off the top of my head. And I also remember a couple games where he allowed just 2 goals in a game and I put him down for stoppable goals on both of them. One of those games was against the Devils.

    It’s not like Domingue played particularly well in Arizona, so I don’t see how one could argue that Tampa is ruining his play or making him look worse.

    Let me quote you: "it happens to every goalie," except the good ones make a save not just lie on that excuse, which is why Dom is a backup and nothing more.

    second bolded: hahahhahaha

    Everything is reflected is their save % considering in this case you know, every other factor is the same.

    Based on one game? Especially since we just experienced proof of the message I was trying to get across. Being the Bolts goalie is a tough job because the team, even though it probably could, hardly ever plays as disciplined as against Boston and Colorado.

    I do...but Domingue's numbers got better and better with regular starts. It's unfair to compare them 1 by 1. Vasi, in my opinion, is the best goalie leaguewide and that's why he can deal with next to zero support in games like that. Domingue isn't a bad goalie just because he can't when asked to do it without getting regular starts for quite a while.

    When would Dominique play next rough guess? Could see him getting 3-4 starts a month here on out.

    Maybe they start Domingue against Vancouver so Vasilevskiy is rested up for Calgary?

    I think they will ride Vasilevskiy for the next 6-7 games.

    I think he's been unintentionally funny.

    I was laughing when he made this three consecutive saves in OT(partly because I've half given up since he can't save them all which makes me relax watching him trying hard like this);



    aaand this no stick save

    Something about him is so entertaining to watch to me lol. I like him as a backup. At the very least he's certainly an upgrade over Budaj

    Agreed, and I think it's the show of emotion.. Vasy is pretty stone-cold when it comes to that, so the contrast makes it that much more apparent.

    I think he's also much better in interviews.. I think Vasy is still unsure of his English (though it's not bad at all), and that makes him quite timid, whereas Louie seems to enjoy talking to the media, and appears like he'd talk all day.

    Two very different personalities, one introverted a bit and one that wears his emotions on his sleeve. Glad to have them both!

    With the win last night, King Louis has tied Vasy and John Grahame for the franchise record win streak at 9 games.

    I had no idea.

    Then I see no reason not to trade Vasy for Panarin at the TDL.

    It's not pretty, but Dom gets the job done.
