    As much as I'm a fan of Andy I hope Lehner gets to keep rolling until he falters.

    That is awesome. Good for him.

    Also, I didn't even look at our record over the last 5 games in that way. Cool.

    Sorry no one was "robing" Lehner. Please correct the title.
    Also,
    Didn't Emery win 9 games to start his career?

    Clearly the next Jani Hurme or maybe, if he's lucky, Marty Prusek.

    Let the goalie controversy begin!

    Craig Anderson confirms he will start in goal tomorrow vs Philly. #Sens

    Herning, Denmark a hockey hotbed? First Regin and now Frederik Andersen. Must be somehow the proximity to Legoland!

    It makes sense. You play your backup against weak teams. :sarcasm:

    If Lehner gets too many starts hes gonna ask for alot more this summer, its sad when saving money gets in the way of the on ice product even more then the budget already imposed

    Stupid move. Imagine how Andy's gonna look if he loses or lets in weak goals.

    Andersons playing like an average goalie, the sens can't afford an average goalie right now.

    Pretty sure Viktor Fasth won his 8 first starts last year (which was his first).

    Oh come on, Andy is still an excellent goalie and he needs starts. Some posters here are so quick to jump on the Lehner bandwagon while forgetting how many games Anderson's stolen for us these last few years.

    We're lucky we have two #1's, especially when our team is struggling defensively. Robin will get his chance soon enough to be the main starter. This has nothing to do with money. Patience people.

    What? Andersen had to make 1 more save than Robin? Ducks are huribblez lol, they give up more shots than the Sens!

    Ok so what is he supposed to do? Wait another month before his next start? That sure could help him

    No, it makes sense to start Andy vs the Flyers and Lehner vs Boston. Well, I hope that's what happens, but anyway, I have a good amount of confidence in both our goalies.

    Both can be good people, you don't have to hate or bash one to favor the other... I hope it's not a Fisher vs Spezza kind of thing again. Please God, this board is already hard to read as it is.

    It's already happening. We have Anderson vs Lehner and Spezza vs Turris already. Last year there was even Zibanejad vs Silfverberg and we're still seeing those old biases come out to play. Less so now with Zibanejad having the same amount of goals in less games and Ryan tearing the league up.

    Don't feel too bad losing to Andersen then. Congrats to Lehner. He has confidence, and the team has confidence in both their goalies, not that they didn't before.

    It sure is a shame that our other awesome goalie is starting, right guys?




    It's a hard life having these two amazing goalies...

    Yup, I wish we could go back to deciding between Pascal and Elliot.
